Newcastle United confirm date and time of Birmingham Cup match (and replay…)
The date and time of the Birmingham v Newcastle match has now been confirmed.
NUFC have announced that the FA Cup third round match will take place on Saturday 7 January, with a 3pm kick-off.
To nobody’s great surprise, the match hasn’t been chosen for live TV coverage and so if you want to see the action you will have to get a ticket.
At the same time as announcing the match details, Newcastle United have also confirmed that if a replay is needed, it will take place on Wednesday 18 January at St James Park, kicking off at 7.45pm.
