DRAW details for the opening round of this year’s FA Cup have been confirmed.
Hartlepool United will discover who their first-round opponents will be when the draw is made live on BBC Two and Radio 5 live on Monday, October 27 at 7pm.
Last year Pools beat Notts County 3-2 in the First Round at Victoria Park before going out to Coventry City in the Second Round after a replay.
The First Round draw was traditionally made on a Monday night and the BBC have decided to make the switch back.
Officials have confirmed that the draw will come from the National Football Centre, at St. George’s Park, in front of a live audience.
