Ball no 46 - 3rd Rd Draw

1 December 2012

The draw for the Third Round of The FA Cup remains a special event in the football calendar

Lower league and non-League teams dream of being paired with a Premier League giant, while the bigger clubs will all be looking to avoid a potential Cup upset.

 


The most notable Third Round tie from last season was the Manchester derby, which United won 3-2 at the home of their local rivals, while Swindon Town, then of League Two, came from behind to knock out Premier League Wigan.


The draw will be conducted by former Tottenham captain Ledley King and former Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba and the draw numbers are listed below:
