When is the FA Cup 5th round draw? Start time, live stream, TV channel and ball numbers as last-16 learn fate

THE road to Wembley continues as the final 16 teams go into the hat for the FA Cup fifth round.

It's not long now until the final in May, with current holders Man City looking to win back-to-back cups after their 6-0 demolition of Watford.

When is the FA Cup fifth round draw?

AS yet, there is no concrete date for the fifth round draw.

With just sixteen teams left in the competition, things are starting to get serious.

And there are NO replays from the fifth round onwards in the FA Cup as of this season.

The move was brought in to avoid fixture congestion in a notoriously busy period of the campaign.

Check back to SunSport where we'll update you as soon as the draw time and date are confirmed.

Which TV channel and live stream can I watch it on?

ONE thing we can be sure of is the draw will be on free-to-air TV in the UK.

Last year it was broadcast live on BBC ONE's the One Show.

And here on SunSport we'll be running a LIVE BLOG so you don't miss out on the ties being revealed, wherever you are.

Ball numbers

UNTIL the fourth round ties are complete, ball numbers won't be revealed.

The fourth round takes place over the weekend January 24-27.

Arsenal visit Bournemouth on Monday night in the final fixture of the round.
