Preston North End or Sheffield United To Host Fifth Round Tie Live On The BBC

28 January 2015

Preston North End or Sheffield United will host Manchester United or Cambridge United live on BBC One in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The tie, scheduled for Monday 16th February with a kick-off time of 7.45pm, is one of five matches which will be televised live in the fifth round.

The Lilywhites travel to Bramall Lane on Tuesday night for their fourth round replay following a 1-1 draw at Deepdale on Saturday, meanwhile, Cambridge travel to Old Trafford to face the Premier League giants following a well-deserved 0-0 draw in their original fixture.

Elsewhere, the following fixtures will also receive lie television coverage:

Saturday 14 February 2015
West Bromwich Albion v West Ham United  - 12.45pm – BT Sport
Crystal Palace v Liverpool or Bolton Wanderers - 5.30pm – BT Sport

Sunday 15 February 2015
Aston Villa v Leicester City -12.30pm – BBC1
Arsenal v Middlesbrough -4.00pm – BT Sport

Don’t forget, in the event North End succeed in the difficult task of overcoming Sheffield United in the fourth round replay, PNE fans who attend that match will be guaranteed a ticket for the fifth round home tie.

Ambassadors and season ticket holders’ seats would be guaranteed for them, however, priority will then be given to those who purchase a ticket for the replay through PNE (tickets purchased on the day – if on the day sales are permitted, will not be accepted).

If you are an Ambassador or a season ticket holder and you purchase a Sheffield United replay ticket you would be entitled to purchase an extra fifth round ticket, should we progress to that stage.

Tickets for the replay are already on general sale from the Deepdale ticket office, over the phone on 0844 856 1966 and online at

The allocation in the Jessica Ennis Stand at Bramall Lane is 4,800 with tickets priced at £15 for adults, £10 for adult season ticket holders, over 60s, U22s and students and £5 for U17s.

Coach travel has also been reduced for this fixture to £10 per person, with coaches departing Deepdale and Leyland Tesco at 4.15pm.
