Wigan get to face the buzzsaw that is Manchester City for one of England’s biggest trophies: the FA Cup. It will be shown live on FOX (KRBK) on Saturday at 11 a.m. CT.

Jamie Trecker looks at the match on Fox Soccer – The Latics were heavy underdogs even before Tuesday’s collapse, but given the way Wigan self-destructed against a weakened Swansea side, few observers are giving them a chance against one of the best teams in the Premier League.

From an article in the Post-Dispatch earlier today

Seats will be added on the field while some in the upper deck in right field won’t be sold, bringing capacity for the game to about 42,000. Bryant said they’re hoping for a sellout, with fans coming from outside the area to see the game.

Fitting a soccer field into Busch Stadium will be a tight squeeze. The field will run from in front of the visiting dugout on the third-base line, along the first-base line, to the right field stands. It will be just short of 100 meters long, the minimum allowable length for an international match, which would probably preclude playing World Cup qualifying matches here. But because this match is an exhibition game, being a few feet short is permissible.
