The competition officially kicks-off with the First Round Proper on Saturday, 6 November and will continue through to the Final at Wembley Stadium in May, 2022.
Adam Cush, Director of Sport Production, 10 ViacomCBS, said: “In addition to being the proud home of all the A-Leagues, Matildas, Socceroos and FFA Cup matches, we are thrilled to bring Australian audiences a taste of the world’s favourite game featuring the best English clubs and some of the world’s best players.
“The oldest and most prestigious domestic cup competition in the world, the Emirates FA Cup, only adds to our football credentials as the new home of football.”
