The three remaining FA Cup quarter-final games take place today (Sunday, March 19), with the six teams in action all battling it out for a place in the semi-final draw.

Manchester City were the first team to book their spot in the draw following a 6-0 win over Vincent Kompany’s Burnley on Saturday, aided by the help of another hat-trick from scoring sensation Erling Haaland.

Today’s action will see Blackburn travel to fellow Championship side Sheffield United while League Two’s Grimsby will be eager to continue their dream run against Premier League high-flyers Brighton.

The fixture list will conclude with Manchester United vs Fulham at 4.30pm as Erik ten Hag’s men continue their quest to win all three cup competitions this season.

So, what time does the FA Cup semi-final draw take place today and how can fans watch it on TV and live stream? Here are the all important details.

What time is the FA Cup semi-final draw?

The semi-final draw will take place today immediately after Brighton’s tie with Grimsby Town, which kicks-off at 2.15pm.

The game is therefore scheduled to finish at around 4pm, however there is a possibility that extra-time and penalties may be required at the Amex so the draw could be pushed back later in the afternoon.
