Hyde United are honoured to host the BBC's coverage of the FA Cup 1st round draw this evening, Monday 16th October 7pm BBC2 and the broadcast will be live from The Tigers Social Club.
The club has a limited capacity and we are governed by the BBC's requirements for camera/lighting space and logistics for presenter/guests and crew etc. The BBC risk assessment recommends an additional 60 attendees (which includes players and staff) so this will have to be by invitation into that area.
However we do want the supporters to feel part of the occasion, so as well as access into the ground and stands, the Peter O'Brien lounge will also be open from around 6:30pm to view the draw on the TVs. Again, this has limited capacity so please bear with us.
In addition, the tea bar at the back of the main stand will be open from 6pm.
Its been a brilliant run so far and lets hope for a favourable draw.
