It has been confirmed that NCAFC's Emirates FA Cup Third Round tie away at Millwall will kick off at 12:31pm on Saturday 4th January, and the match will also be broadcast live overseas.

As part of the Heads Up campaign, all 32 Emirates FA Cup Third Round fixtures [excluding replays] will kick-off one minute later than their traditionally scheduled timeslots to encourage fans to ‘Take A Minute’ to think about looking after their mental health. 

During the minute delay, fans will be encouraged to consider the positive impact 60 seconds can have on their own wellbeing or in supporting a friend or family member. 

Heads Up is partnering with Public Health England’s Every Mind Matters across the Emirates FA Cup Third Round to draw attention to the simple steps we can all take to look after our mental health and wellbeing.

The partnership will signpost to the free, online Every Mind Matters resources and ‘Your Mind Plan’ tool, which fans can use to create a personal mental health action plan, providing them with a tailored set of simple self-care actions.

In conjunction with Heads Up charity partners Mind, CALM, Heads Together and Sporting Chance, fans will also be provided helpful tips and advice on how they can approach managing their mental health.
