Will FA Cup games have replays or are extra-time and penalties used if it is a draw? – The Sun

THE FA Cup third round has finally arrived, months after last season's final where Leicester beat Chelsea 1-0. 

But what happens if matches are drawn? Will there be a replay to decides who gets to the next round?

Will FA Cup games go to replays or extra-time and penalties?

The FA Cup will not go to replays this season to help fixture congestion caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Replays were first scrapped from the quarter-finals onward in 2016.

And then last season they were scrapped completely due to Covid-19.

Because of the fixture build-up caused by the pandemic this term, replays from the third round onwards have been ditched again.

Games which end in a draw will now be settled by 30 minutes of extra-time and a penalty shootout if necessary.
