Chichester City and their 78 potential FA Cup opponents - or will they get a bye?

Chichester City will be ball number 71 in Monday's FA Cup first round draw - in one which lucky team will get a bye straight into the second round.

Balls ready! The draw is on Monday night

The folding of Bury FC means the 80-strong line-up for the first round proper is one short and the FA have decided that the last team left in the draw machine will get a bye to the second round, and will automatically be awarded the £36,000 prize money they'd get for a first round win.

That could be Chi but in truth Miles Rutherford and his staff and players will be hoping they get a game - and a glamorous one at that.

Here are the FA Cup first round ball numbers:

1 ACCRINGTON STANLEY

2 AFC WIMBLEDON

3 BLACKPOOL
