FFA Cup matches streamed live

Football fans will be able to get their weekly FFA Cup fix with three of the four fixtures streamed live.

The final week in Round of 32 action sees WA club Stirling Lions take on the reigning A-League champs, Brisbane Roar, at Western Australia Athletics Stadium on Tuesday night.

The match will be shown on www.brisbaneroar.com.au from 9.30pm AEST (7.30pm local time).

Roar managing director Sean Dobson described the club’s first FFA Cup match as “historic”.

“We worked closely with Football West and Football Federation Australia for this outcome and we’re looking forward to an exciting encounter against the Lions,” Dobson said.

Central Coast Mariners are expecting strong viewing numbers when they stream their clash with South Coast Wolves on Wednesday night from 7.20pm on www.CCMariners.com.au.

 Club CEO Bruce Stalder said the decision to stream the fixture was a simple one. 

“So far the Westfield FFA Cup has delivered exciting matches and fantastic football stories from all across Australia,” Stalder said.

“On Wednesday our team will be doing their utmost to book a place in the last 16 of this great competition, but it’s also important that as many of our members and fans as possible have the chance to view the game.

“All of the Westfield FFA Cup matches streamed online so far have attracted strong viewing figures, and we believe our game against South Coast Wolves will be no different.”

 Melbourne Victory launch their Cup campaign later that night, taking on WA NPL leaders, Bayswater City, at WA Athletics Stadium.

Kick-off is at 9:30pm AEST, (7:30pm local time) and will be streamed live on www.melbournevictory.com.au.

In the other Cup match of the week Hakoah Sydney City face Palm Beach Sharks at Hensley Athletic Field, Pagewood (NSW).
