Sydney derby headlines FFA Cup Round of 16 coverage

The FFA Cup Round of 16 will showcase live coverage of the blockbuster derby between Sydney United 58 FC and Sydney FC as well as Tuggeranong United’s anticipated clash with Melbourne Victory.

 Fox Sports will broadcast both matches with live crosses to the other six games as the drama unfolds over two epic nights of Cup football.

Vikings Park in Canberra will play host to the match between Capital Football NPL club Tuggeranong United and Melbourne Victory on September 16 in what will be the biggest game in the ‘Tuggies’ history.

The other three matches on the night will see Belmore Sports Ground host Sydney Olympic and Victorian NPL club Bentleigh Greens, Queensland NPL outfit Olympic FC aiming to keep its Cup run going against the Central Coast Mariners at the Queensland Sports and Athletic Centre, and two NSL championship winners, Adelaide City and Brisbane Strikers, reigniting their rivalry at Marden Sports Complex.

The highly-anticipated Sydney derby will headline night two on Tuesday September 23.

Coopers Stadium will host the solitary all-A-League encounter between Adelaide United and Brisbane Roar, while recently crowned NPL Queensland Premiers Palm Beach Sharks will take on South Springvale and Perth Glory are away against St Albans Saints.

The venues for the Sydney derby and St Albans’ clash with Perth Glory are yet to be finalised as FFA ensure venues meet the required standard of lighting. A suitable ground is also still to be confirmed for the Palm Beach Sharks v South Springvale match.

The two matches in Adelaide will kick-off at 7.00pm ACST (local time) so they are played simultaneously with the other matches to ensure all games are featured in the coverage.
