Cheltenham vs. Man City start time and channels

The Cheltenham vs. Man City match is today Saturday (Jan. 23) with a 12:30 p.m. EST/9:30 a.m. PST kickoff. ESPN Plus will live stream the match to U.S. fans, while you can watch the action on BBC One in the UK.

The Cheltenham vs. Man City live stream is starting soon, and it delivers one of the best things about the FA Cup: a David vs. Goliath match-up in the later rounds. And with the fourth round of this year's FA Cup, David is Cheltenham taking on Premier League title contenders Manchester City.

Cheltenham is actually having a fairly strong season, currently in sixth place in League Two and only four points off the top of the table with half the season left to play. But League Two is the fourth tier of English football, well below the heights of the Premier League, where Man City are now in second after a shaky start to the season.

Put this another way, Cheltenham will welcome Man City to the Jonny-Rocks Stadium 72 places below their visitors in the English football pyramid. So a Cheltenham win would be a big upset you won't want to miss. And an upset could be in the cards, as Man City Sergio Agüero has been ruled out of the game, and City could rest other key players.
