Wanderers FFA Cup Round of 32 Match Date Confirmed

The FFA Cup 2021 will continue next month with Football Australia confirming match details for several Round of 32 fixtures. 

The Round of 32 will see eight (8) more fixtures across the East and South Zones in November. 

After the postponement of the FFA Cup Round of 32 matches drawn in the East (NNSW, NSW and ACT) and the South (VIC, TAS), Football Australia is pleased to confirm that eight fixtures have been scheduled and will commence from the first week of November to continue the progression of this year’s competition.

The all-National Premier Leagues (NPL) NSW clash between Mt Druitt Town Rangers FC and Wollongong Wolves FC will kick things off, with Popondetta Park confirmed as the venue and a 7pm AEDT kick-off time set for Saturday, 6 November.

For the first time in the 2021 Final Rounds there will be simultaneous kick-offs on Wednesday, 10 November when Hume City FC take on Port Melbourne Sharks SC at ABD Stadium in Melbourne, and Broadmeadow Magic FC host Western Sydney Wanderers FC at No.2 Sportsground in Newcastle from 7:30pm AEDT.

The action will continue on Friday, 12 November when National Soccer League (NSL) giant and National Second Tier aspirant, South Melbourne, welcome defending A-League Men Champions Melbourne City to Lakeside Stadium in one of the marquee fixtures of the Round of 32, with kick-off scheduled for 7:30pm AEDT.

A further two matches will be played the following day on Saturday, 13 November, with mouth-watering NPL v A-League matches scheduled in NSW. Subject to restrictions easing between Greater Sydney and regional NSW, the FFA Cup will go regional when Blacktown City FC face Central Coast Mariners at Glen Willow Stadium in Mudgee at 5pm AEDT. On that same night, Newcastle Olympic FC host Macarthur FC, who make their FFA Cup debut, at No.2 Sportsground at 6pm AEDT.
