Norwich City's FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester United will take place over the weekend of June 27-28.

The Canaries knocked out Tottenham Hotspur on penalties to reach the last eight before football was suspended in March.

Daniel Farke's side had already beaten Preston North End and Burnley in the previous rounds.

It's not been decided yet whether the game will take place at Carrow Road or at a neutral venue, but a provisional date of June 27 or June 28 has been agreed.

The game will be played behind closed doors.

The semi-finals would be staged over the weekend of 18-19 July and the final has been scheduled for August 1.

“We are pleased to agree the provisional restart date for the 2019/20 Emirates FA Cup. The competition has been an integral part of the English football calendar for nearly 150 years, and we’d like to thank the Premier League Executive and Clubs for their support in scheduling the remaining matches during this unprecedented time," FA Chief Executive Officer Mark Bullingham said.

“This has been a difficult period for many people and while this is a positive step, the restart date is dependent on all safety measures being met. The health and wellbeing of players, staff and supporters remains our priority.”

The match against Manchester United will be the first time Norwich have contested an FA Cup quarter-final since 1992.

On that occasion they beat Southampton in a replay before going on to lose to Sunderland in the last four.
