THE return of football is nearing. Our upcoming FFA Cup Round of 32 fixture against South Melbourne FC has been confirmed for 3.00pm on Sunday 29 August at Lakeside Stadium in Albert Park.

For the first time in FFA Cup history, a Round of 32 match will take place on a weekend, with our mouth-watering encounter headlining the fixtures.

“We are thrilled that the FFA Cup 2021 Final Rounds are now just weeks away from commencing, with this year’s competition featuring a number of enhancements,” Football Australia Chief Executive Officer, James Johnson, said.

“We will always endeavour to place football and our fans first by ensuring that scheduling supports them and helps create special moments to savour. This means weekend football and placing greater value on the FFA Cup match day experience.

“The competition will also be showcased on our new broadcaster via 10 play and Network 10. This is an exciting development and will serve to ensure that Australians across the nation have access to the largest, and only truly national club-based knockout competition in the country, live and free."
