Swansea City's FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester City will be played on Saturday, March 16 (KO 5.20pm).

The Liberty Stadium contest has been chosen for live TV coverage by BT Sport as the two sides meet with a place in a semi-final at Wembley on the line.

The draw was made on Monday night with the Swans having seen off Brentford 4-1 in the fifth round, while Pep Guardiola's reigning Premier League champions beat Newport County by the same scoreline to book their place in the last eight.

This will be the first time Swansea and Manchester City have faced each other in the famous knock-out competition.

Ticket details will be confirmed in due course.

Swansea's Championship fixture against Derby - originally scheduled for March 16 - has been rearranged for Wednesday May 1, with a kick-off time of 7.45pm.

Supporters who have already purchased tickets for the rearranged fixture against Derby are advised that their tickets remain valid for the rescheduled date. Those who are not able to attend the rescheduled date should contact the Liberty Stadium Ticket Office to enquire about a refund at the earliest possible opportunity in advance of May 1.
