The opening game of the FA Cup is to be streamed live on Facebook, the first live football match to be broadcast on the social networking site.

FA Cup sponsor Budweiser brokered the deal with non-league teams Ascot United and Wembley FC. The live stream from Ascot’s 1,150-capacity ground will be made available via an application built into the US brewer’s UK Facebook page. Mark Sweney/The Guardian.
