In what is sure to shock and surprise all Leeds fans, the FA Cup match against Queens Park Rangets will be shown on television and also be moved. The all-Championship match has been selected as one of the fixtures that will be broadcast overseas by local FA Cup rights holders.

The match will now take place on Sunday afternoon at 14:00 and will still take place at Loftus Road in West London.

Per the club’s official website:

Leeds United’s Emirates FA Cup third round tie against Queens Park Rangers has been selected for overseas broadcast.

The fixture at Loftus Road, will now kick off at 2pm on Sunday 6th January 2019.

In our last meeting with QPR at Loftus Road in December 2017, a Kemar Roofe hat-trick saw Leeds win 3-1.

Ticket details for this fixture will be announced in due course.

Leeds have faced off against QPR twice previously in the FA Cup, with the win coming back in 1987 and the only loss was in 1932.

Leeds, of course, also face off against QPR tomorrow at Elland Road, so a good win will hopefully provide momentum for the FA Cup fixture in January, and also give a chance for some fringe players to get a chance to prove themselves in the side.
