Albion’s FA Cup clash against Newcastle United has been selected for live coverage on ITV1.

The third round tie has been moved forward, and will kick off at 12:30pm on Saturday 5th of January – meaning Albion will be under the spotlight as that particular round of games get underway.

ITV will be hoping for a contest similar to the one that saw the Seagulls emerge 1-0 winners over the Magpies at the Amex last season – Will Buckley with the only goal to set up a fifth round tie with Liverpool.

As the hosts of the televised event, the club will receive £135,850 from the broadcasters.
