Cardiff draw Arsenal in FA Cup

Last updated : 04 January 2009 By Michael Morris
The teams met in 2006 when City were the last side to face Arsenal in the FA Cup at Highbury before the Gunners moved to their new stadium.

Cardiff, ball No. 11 were drawn out by Dave Beasent with Roberto Di Mateo drawing out ball No. 35. Arsenal.

It's a plum tie and will guarantee a sell out crowd against major opposition for Ninian Park before the turnstiles stop revolving later in the year.
