Fleetwood Town can confirm that our Emirates FA Cup Third Round tie against Portsmouth will be played on Saturday 4 January 2020 (kick-off 5:31pm).
Town – who were ball 61 in Monday night’s draw – will welcome Kenny Jackett’s side to Highbury, with the club looking to reach the Fourth Round for the first time.
The match will be played on Saturday 4 January, with a kick-off time of 5:31pm. The match is one of nine games selected for overseas broadcast.
The kick-off time is part of the new ‘Heads Up’ campaign, which will see all Third Round fixtures kick-off a minute later to encourage fans to ‘Take a Minute’ to think about looking after their mental health.
Heads Up is partnering with Public Health England’s Every Mind Matters across the Emirates FA Cup Third Round to draw attention to the simple steps we can all take to look after our mental health and wellbeing.
The partnership will signpost to the free, online Every Mind Matters resources and ‘Your Mind Plan’ tool, which fans can use to create a personal mental health action plan, providing them with a tailored set of simple self-care actions.
In conjunction with Heads Up charity partners Mind, CALM, Heads Together and Sporting Chance, fans will also be provided helpful tips and advice on how they can approach managing their mental health.
Ticket prices for the match will be announced in due course.
