What channel is Middlesbrough v Chelsea on? Kick-off time and prize money available for FA Cup quarter final progress

Middlesbrough have claimed two of the biggest scalps in this season's FA Cup and face their toughest test of this season's competition as they host Chelsea in the quarter-finals on Saturday night.

The European Champions visit the Riverside Stadium at 5.15pm on Saturday, with Boro having already knocked out Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur on their way to the last eight.

Middlesbrough's tie against Chelsea is the first of four FA Cup games this weekend and will be played in front of a partisan crowd after an additional 3,200 tickets were made available to Boro supporters.

The tickets were returned to the club by Chelsea due to government sanctions. The London club had requested the game be played behind closed doors due to the sanctions but quickly withdrew the request with Middlesbrough branding the suggestion as "grossly unfair".

How can I watch?

The game will be broadcast on BBC One and will also be made available to view on BBC iPlayer.

All clubs in the last eight will receive a £200,000 live broadcast fee. On Sunday, Crystal Palace v Everton (12.30pm) will be shown on ITV while the BBC will carry coverage of Man City's trip to Southampton at 3pm. ITV will broadcast the final last-eight tie as Nottingham Forest host Liverpool at 6pm.
