As part of the Heads Up campaign, all 32 Emirates FA Cup Third Round fixtures - excluding replays - will kick-off one minute later than their traditionally scheduled timeslots to encourage fans to ‘Take A Minute’ to think about looking after their mental health.

During the minute delay, fans will be encouraged to consider the positive impact 60 seconds can have on their own wellbeing or in supporting a friend or family member.

Six games in the FA Cup third round have been selected for broadcast with the Merseyside derby between Arsenal and Everton at Anfield also screened on BBC One with a 4.01pm kick-off on Sunday, January 5.
