Date and ticket details announced for Wolves’ FA Cup tie against United

Wolves have arranged date for their FA Cup tie against Manchester United.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side will host Manchester United in the third round on Saturday January 4.

The game is a repeat of last season’s FA Cup quarter-final 2-1 win which put Wolves through to Wembley for the first time in 31 years.

The tie has been selected for live broadcast on BT Sport 1, kicking off at 5.31pm.

All FA Cup third round ties will be delayed by one minute to help promote mental health. The FA, in partnership with the Heads Up campaign and the National Health Service’s Every Mind Matters, wants to encourage fans to think about their mental wellbeing.

Wolves last hosted United at Molineux in their opening home match of the Premier League season, in a 1-1 draw.

The last time they met in the third round at Molineux was when Mike Bailey scored the only goal in January 1973. United have enjoyed the better of the teams’ tussles in the Cup however.

The Red Devils beat Glenn Hoddle’s Championship side 3-0 at the fourth round stage in 2006, and Tommy Docherty’s United triumphed 3-2 at Molineux in a quarter-final replay in 1976, when Steve Kindon (pictured) and John Richards scored, after the latter forced a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

Steve Kindon scored for Wolves against United in the FA Cup quarter-final replay at Molineux in 1976.

United also held sway spectacularly in the two mid-1960s goal fests at Molineux, when their Holy Trinity of Best, Law and Charlton were in their pomp.

Sir Matt Busby’s side won 5-3 in the quarter-final in 1965 and 4-2 at the fifth round stage a year later.

Season ticket holders can get discounted ticket prices for the visit of United from £25 for adults, £15 for over-65s and under-21s, and £5 for under-17s.
