The FA Cup on BBC Sport

The BBC will broadcast one game from every round of FA Cup qualifying, starting today.

Since the FA Cup returned to the BBC in 2014-15, the corporation has shown live matches from the first round proper onwards.

But coverage will now start six rounds earlier, when the extra preliminary stage gets under way this weekend.

A game from every stage of the 2017-18 tournament will be live-streamed across BBC Sport's digital platforms, allowing audiences to watch the game live on PC, mobile or connected TV. Matches will also be available live and on-demand on BBC iPlayer.
