Chelsea will welcome Preston North End to Stamford Bridge on Saturday 6 January, as our 2023/24 FA Cup campaign gets underway.
The Blues' third-round fixture will kick off at 5.30pm and will be broadcast on BBC iPlayer in the UK. Ticket information will follow in due course.
Chelsea have lifted the FA Cup on eight occasions, the most recent of which was in 2018 as an Eden Hazard penalty saw us defeat Manchester United 1-0 at Wembley.
We last played Preston in this competition in January 2010, winning 2-0 at Deepdale.
