FA Youth Cup Date Announced

Last season's competition saw Blues make it to the fifth round


A new date has been confirmed for Blues' FA Youth Cup tie.

Blues Under-18s will travel to Manchester City in the third round of the FA Youth Cup on Friday 12 March 2021.

The fixture for Paul Harsley's side, against last season's competition winners, will kick-off at 7pm and take place at the Academy Stadium.

This follows confirmation last week that the FA Youth Cup will recommence following its temporary suspension due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Last term, Blues made it to the fifth round before being knocked out by Wigan Athletic. Opponents Manchester City lifted the FA Youth Cup after beating Chelsea 3-2 in November’s final at St. George’s Park.
