Keep an eye out on our site and the Sheffield Wednesday website for further news, which is sure to be released in the coming days.
Why is the game being played in midweek?
The FA Cup is aiming to relieve fixture congestion with a new-look 5th round this year, and for a change there will be no replays, with all 5th round games being played in midweek as opposed to the traditional weekend slot.
The game at Hillsborough will take place on Wednesday, March 4 at 8pm.
As there are no replays, the game will go to extra-time and penalties if the game is a draw after 90 minutes.
Will the game be on TV?
As we all know this is a very big game, and as a result it has been given a primetime slot on terrestrial TV on BBC One.
Gary Lineker and co. will travel to South Yorkshire to see if the Owls can pull off an upset against Pep Guardiola’s side, and millions are sure to tune in.
