FA Cup Playlist returns for Third Round Weekend


Soundtrack your team all the way to Wembley Stadium with the FA Cup Playlist, which has returned ahead of this weekend’s Third Round. 

Supported by the biggest artists, such as Liam Gallagher, The Vaccines, Wiley, Craig David and many more – the world’s most famous domestic cup competition also boasts the best music policy.

Led by ‘Abide With Me‘ – the hymn traditionally performed at the FA Cup Final – #CupMusic is refreshed each round, giving you – the fans – new tracks to mark every magical goal and moment.

The Third Round kicks off on January 5th at Anfield as seven-time winners Liverpool host Everton (7:55pm) in a big Merseyside derby, while 12-time victors Manchester United take on Derby County at Old Trafford on the same night (8:00pm).

In the pick of the other ties, Jamie Vardy returns to Fleetwood Town as Leicester City make the trip to Highbury, League One promotion chasers Shrewsbury Town aim to cause an upset versus West Ham United, holders Arsenal travel to Nottingham Forest and, on the Monday, Brighton & Hove Albion host arch-rivals Crystal Palace.

This season – in which the final takes place on May 19 – marks the 137th edition of the competition, which started in the 1871/72 season. In 2017, Arsenal lifted the trophy a record 13th time and for the third time in the past four years after defeating Chelsea 2-1.
