Wednesday’s FA Cup Third Round replay clash with Manchester City at Eastlands has been chosen as one of the matches for live coverage on Sky.

The news will be a welcome financial boost for the club with the Owls set to rake in around £150,000 for the priviledge, and for Owls fans unable to attend the clash in Manchester a week on Tuesday.

The game has been brought forward 24 hours to Tuesday, January 16 with a 7.45pm kick-off after Wednesday agreed to the request by City this afternoon.

Wednesday will still be hoping the Owls faithful make the trip – the first for the Owls since City left Maine Road – to Eastlands with City giving Wednesday ajn initial 4,000 tickets priced at £15 for adults and £5 for concessions.

Tickets will go on sale to season-ticket holders with ID numbers from Tuesday with all other priority holders able to purchase tickets from Thursday and general sale commencing on Friday.

The Inter-City Owl will be available for supporters and departs at 4.30pm from the usual spots. Prices are £10.00 adult members, £9.00 for junior members and £11.00 for non-members.
