Westfield FFA Cup Round of 16 Match Details announced


The opening night of the Westfield FFA Cup Round of 16 will see the rekindling of a classic old rivalry as two proud former NSL clubs, Sydney United 58 FC and Heidelberg United, take centre stage on Wednesday 23 August as the headline broadcast match on FOX SPORTS.

The two old foes will trigger memories of the old glory days as they battle it out at the Sydney United Sports Centre for a spot in the last eight.

Night one of the Round of 16 will also see a heavyweight Hyundai A-League clash between Adelaide United and Melbourne Victory in front of what is likely to be a full house at Marden Sports Complex, while it will be a ‘Piddick Derby’ in Queensland as brothers Adam and Grae Piddick, the respective bosses at Moreton Bay United and Gold Coast City, attempt to plot the other’s downfall.

The other match on August 23 sees South Melbourne at home again, this time for the visit of the Jamie Harnwell coached Sorrento, who eliminated last year’s semi finalists Canberra Olympic in the Round of 32.

Then on Tuesday 29 August FOX SPORTS will broadcast the tantalising match between 2014 semi finalists Bentleigh Greens and Western Sydney Wanderers FC.

Twice Bentleigh have faced Hyundai A-League opposition in the Westfield FFA Cup and on both occasions they have come out on the wrong end of the score line so they will be hoping it’s a case of third time lucky when they welcome Tony Popovic’s charges to Kingston Heath.

The rest of the night two action comes from the harbour city as Blacktown City, Bankstown Berries and Hakoah Sydney City East all host matches on what promises to be a bumper night of Cup action.

Lily Homes Stadium will play host to Blacktown City against APIA Leichhardt Tigers, the two teams currently vying for the top spot in PS4 NPL NSW.

At Leichhardt Oval Hakoah Sydney City East are set to add another chapter in their history when they host reigning Cup holders Melbourne City FC, while second division club Bankstown Berries, the remaining Cinderella story in the this year’s competition, prepare to take on the star studded Sydney FC in a dream Cup tie at Sydney United Sports Centre.

As well as broadcasting one match LIVE and exclusive in full on each match night, FOX SPORTS will also LIVE stream and provide updates and crosses of all other matches.

Ticketing information for each of the Westfield FFA Cup 2017 Round of 32 matches will be released in due course by each home club. Please visit www.theffacup.com.au/tickets for further details.
