The BBC, who, along with BT Sport, have partial rights to the FA Challenge Cup until the end of 2017/18, have announced details of a slight change in the draws for each round of the historic tournament.

Under the new plans, the draws will move to Monday evenings and be conducted in front of a live audience.

Mark Chapman will present the coverage from 19:00-19:30 on BBC Two, BBC Radio 5 live, and on the BBC Sport website.

This season, BBC Sport will take the FA Cup draws live on the road from different venues across the country throughout the season, including a few surprise locations.

The first-round draw will come from the National Football Centre at St George's Park in front of a live audience on Monday 27th October.

Forty ties will be drawn in this first round, as 48 clubs from League One and League Two join the non-league teams who have battled their way through qualifying.
