LIVE FA Cup quarter-finals on eir sport this weekend


Join eir sport for two cracking FA Cup quarter-final ties this weekend as the world's oldest club football cup competition continues.

The excitement is building as there are just eight teams left in this season's tournament, including the current Premier League top four.

The quarter-finals are set for this weekend (March 20th-21st) and eir sport will be showing two mouth-watering clashes LIVE.

First up is Everton v Manchester City at Goodison Park on Saturday. The game is scheduled for a 5.30pm kick-off with coverage on eir sport 1 from 5.20pm. 

Can Pep Guardiola's side claim the trophy for the second time in three years or will the Merseysiders bag their first silverware since they beat Man Utd in the final back in 1995?

United feature in our second LIVE game on Sunday (March 21st) as they travel to the King Power Stadium to take on Leicester City. Kick off is set for 5pm with coverage from 4.50pm on eir sport 1. 

A replay of the 1963 final which featured Irish internationals Tony Dunne, Noel Cantwell and John Giles in the United line-up, Leicester are looking to end their unhappy record of having made the most appearances in the final without ever having won the trophy (four).
