FA Cup 2014-15: How to follow on the BBC

The FA Cup is returning to the BBC this season, and we'll guide you all the way to Wembley on television, radio and online.

From the first-round draw to the showpiece final at Wembley, we're bringing you all the best live action, highlights and analysis.

The Friday, 7 November match between Warrington and Exeter, which will be televised live on BBC Two and online, is the first to be broadcast live on BBC TV since 2008.

Dan Walker will host Match of the Day Live from Warrington's Cantilever Park from 19:30 GMT.

As part of the BBC's weekend of first round coverage, Football Focus will come live from Weston-super-Mare AFC on the Saturday before the Conference South side's home tie against League One Doncaster Rovers.

You will be able to follow every draw in a regular Monday evening slot (19:00 GMT) on BBC Two, BBC Radio 5 live and via the BBC Sport website - continuing with the second-round draw on 10 November.

Throughout the competition, and beginning with the first round, there will be enhanced BBC Live text commentaries with an FA Cup Catch-up service, goal clips, match highlights and features on the BBC Sport website and app.

The draw for the third round takes place on 8 December, preceding a month of dedicated FA Cup content in January.

Across third-round weekend itself, two live games will be broadcast on BBC One (dates and times to be confirmed) while Football Focus will be broadcast live from one of the match venues.

Radio 5 live will broadcast selected third-round commentaries and have reporters at all the key matches, and BBC local radio will also offer extensive coverage of the FA Cup.

As ever, there will be Match of the Day highlights on both Saturday and Sunday and the BBC's Get Inspired will be holding participation events which will tie in with key FA Cup moments.

A similar pattern will follow for future rounds, culminating in FA Cup final week, when a special documentary will be aired on BBC One, with the showpiece match being played at Wembley on Saturday, 30 May 2015.

BBC Sport has a four-year FA Cup rights contract running until 2018 in partnership with BT Sport.
