Date set for FA Youth Cup tie

Blues Under-18s will take on Manchester City in January 2021.


Blues will travel to Manchester City on Thursday 14 January in the Third Round of the FA Youth Cup.

Kicking off at 7pm, the game will take place at the Manchester City Academy Stadium.

Just a stone’s throw from the Etihad Stadium, the clash for Paul Harsley’s side is scheduled just four days after the Club’s first-team face Manchester City in the Emirates FA Cup.

Last season's competition saw Blues make it to the fifth round where they were eliminated by Wigan Athletic. Opponents Manchester City lifted the FA Youth Cup after prevailing 3-2 over Chelsea in November’s final at St. George’s Park.

Blues most impressive recent showing saw them reach the last four in 2018, bowing out against eventual winners Chelsea.

Should Blues Under-18s progress, they will face a home tie against either Everton, Wigan or Notts County in the next round.
