ESPN is pulling out all the stops for this weekend’s Wrexham FA Cup game.
The Red Dragons host Sheffield United of the Championship in the FA Cup Fourth Round at the Racecourse Ground this Sunday at 11:30 AM ET. The game airs live on ESPN+.
The rising Welsh club has had its share of memorable moments in the past, including a shocking FA Cup win against Arsenal in 1991. Similarly, they’ll be looking to knock off a Sheffield United side who currently sit second in the English Championship (in an automatic promotion spot to the Premier League), 13 points clear of third.
Wrexham themselves are flying high, presently atop the National League table with promotion to League Two a top priority. Hence, it’s a place that would guarantee a return to the Football League if they can finish strong.
