West Ham United's FA Cup third round tie with Leeds United date and kick-off time set

West Ham United's 2021/22 Emirates FA Cup third round tie with Leeds United has been selected for live television coverage in the UK.

The Hammers' clash with the Peacocks will take place at London Stadium on Sunday 9 January 2022, with kick-off at 2.15pm, and be broadcast live on ITV1.

Ticket information for this match will be announced in due course.

Should the game finish in a draw after 90 minutes, there will be no extra-time and a replay will be played at Elland Road on Wednesday 19 January 2022.

It is just the third time the two storied Premier League clubs have been drawn to face one another in the FA Cup, with Leeds prevailing 1-0 in a second-round replay in February 1924 and West Ham winning 4-1 in a fourth round tie in January 1930, with Vic Watson scoring all four goals.

The Irons reached the fifth round last season before being edged out 1-0 by Manchester United in extra-time on a bitterly cold night at Old Trafford.

West Ham, of course, are three-time winners of the FA Cup, lifting the trophy in 1964, 1975 and 1980, and also reached the final in 1923 and 2006.

However, the Hammers have not been past the quarter-finals since reaching that 2006 final, where they were beaten on penalties by Liverpool following a 3-3 draw at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.

The way David Moyes' men have been performing in the Premier League, UEFA Europa League and EFL Cup this season, though, hopes will be high that we can go all the way in 2021/22.
