Phil Parkinson's Bantams will found out their first round opponents in this season's Emirates FA Cup next Monday (26 October 2015).

The draw will be live on BBC Two from 7:00pm on the Monday evening.

First round ties are scheduled to take place on the weekend of 7/8 November 2015.

The final FA Cup qualifying round takes place this weekend (24/25 October 2015), with FC Halifax Town, Harrogate Town, and Guiseley all in action.

City defeated FC Halifax 2-1 in the first round last season before eventually bowing out at the quarter-final stage, losing a replay at Championship side Reading.

With City's FA Cup exploits attracting attention across the country during the 2014/2015 campaign, this season's first round draw will actually take place at nearby Thackley Juniors FC's Dennyfields ground.

Mark Cole, BBC lead executive football, explained: "Bradford City were the stand-out giant-killers in the competition last season, so we thought it fitting to base the first-round draw at a local community club."
