The live draw for the 2016/2017 MTN FA Cup Round of 64 has being scheduled for Thursday, April 13, at the GFA Secretariat in Accra.

The draw involving 16 Premier League clubs, 34 qualified clubs from the Division One League and 14 clubs from the Division Two League will be paired to determine which club qualifies to the next stage of the competition.

The 2016/17 edition will mark the seventh year of MTN’s sponsorship of the FA Cup competition since its reintroduction in the 2010/2011 football season.

Previous winners such as Nania FC failed to make it past the preliminary round of this year’s competition while this year’s Champions Bechem United will begin their title defense from Thursday’s draw.
