Why are the FA Cup kick-off times staggered?
In 2016, the FA signed a lucrative new overseas TV deal for the FA Cup, said to be worth £820m.
Under the terms of the deal, marketing agency Pitch International were handed the overseas broadcast rights for West Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.
Therefore while most games will not be televised in the UK, they will be internationally.
