BT Sport is to show Bradford City's FA Cup quarter-final against Reading and make the game available free-to-air in the UK.

All TV viewers will be able to see the giant-killing Bantams - who have knocked out Chelsea and Sunderland in the last two rounds - take on their Championship opponents at Valley Parade.

The winner of this tie - which will kick-off at 12:45pm on Saturday March 7th, live on BT Sport 1 - will have a Wembley semi-final date to look forward to.

League One Bradford were snubbed by the television cameras in the last round, with both BT Sport and the BBC choosing to broadcast other games.

But having knocked out two Barclays Premier League sides, including the current league leaders, BT Sport is ensuring everyone has the chance to watch their next game in the competition.

Viewers will be able to tune in on BT Sport 1 via the BT TV and Sky platforms, or stream the game for free over the internet.

BT Sport will also show the Liverpool v Blackburn quarter-final, which kicks off at 4pm on Sunday March 8th.

This game will be reserved for pay-TV subscribers, who can tune into BT Sport 1 via their TV set, and BT broadband customers, who can watch the action via the BT Sport app.

Simon Green, Head of BT Sport, said the excitement of the FA Cup continues on BT Sport, with two "fantastic" quarter-finals coming up on the platform.

"This will be the second time that BT Sport have shown Bradford City in this year’s FA Cup," he noted.

"Because Bradford City Football Club have been very passionate about the UK seeing their amazing club run, BT Sport has decided to make the game against Reading available to everyone to watch, online, via BT TV and Sky."
