Having had their win at Maldon and Tiptree last weekend broadcast across the BBC and BT Sport digital platforms, the Shrimps’ home tie with Solihull Moors will be shown on the same basis.

The match at the Mazuma Stadium will be played on Saturday, November 28, kicking off at 12.30pm.

Again, the match has been designated as a ‘multi-camera’ event, meaning a live broadcast fee of £37,500 for both clubs.

As well as a place in round three, when the Premier League and Championship clubs enter the draw, victory will also be worth £25,500 in prize money with the losing team picking up £8,500.

The match will also be decided on the day via extra time and penalties with no replays taking place this season as a result of the congested fixture programme.
