When is the FA Cup 4th Round played?

The FA announced at the start of the season that the 2022/23 FA Cup 4th Round would commence on the weekend of January 28, 2023.

The 28th is a Saturday which is when the bulk of the matches will be played, though with both the BBC and ITV holding the rights to televise matches, a number of the 4th Round ties have been moved to various other days that weekend for live coverage.

Are there replays in the FA Cup 4th Round?

Yes, there are replays in the FA Cup Fourth Round if the original match between two sides finishes in a draw after 90 minutes.

Following last season, when replays were cancelled by the FA due to the COVID-19 outbreak, England’s football governing body reinstated replays for the 2022/23 competition.

In a statement, the FA announced, “replays will be mandatory in all rounds of the qualifying competition and the competition proper from the first round proper up to and including the fourth round proper.”

As seen from the above statement, the Fourth Round is the last round that will be settled using replays, with ties in subsequent rounds going straight to extra-time and a penalty shoot-out if needed.
