Details confirmed for FFA Cup Round of 16

The Phoenix will travel to Melbourne to play Melbourne City on Wed 26 Aug in the FFA Cup Round of 16.

The dates, venues and kick-off times for the Westfield FFA Cup 2015 Round of 16 have been announced, which will see the eight matches played across two huge nights on Wednesday 26 August and Tuesday 1 September 2015.

The opening night of the Westfield FFA Cup Round of 16 will see FOX SPORTS broadcast the all-Hyundai A-League encounter between reigning Cup holders Adelaide United and Sydney FC from Coopers Stadium, the match to be the second time the sides will have met in the competition after the Reds knocked the Sky Blues out in the Quarter Finals last year.

In the other matches scheduled for 26 August, Melbourne City FC will take on Wellington Phoenix at AAMI Park, PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues Victoria outfit Heidelberg United will host Sydney United 58 FC at Olympic Village, and last year’s Westfield FFA Cup finalists Perth Glory face Brisbane Premier League club Lions FC at Perry Park in Queensland.

Then on Tuesday 1 September FOX SPORTS will show all of the action from Jubilee Oval in Kogarah as Rockdale City Suns face reigning Hyundai A-League champions Melbourne Victory.

Also on night two, Palm Beach were drawn at home for the fourth time in five Westfield FFA Cup Final Round matches and will take on Western Sydney Wanderers FC at Cbus Super Stadium, the scene of Palm Beach’s victory over South Melbourne in the Round of 32.

The other matches on that night will feature MetroStars against Oakleigh Cannons at Elite Systems Football Centre in Adelaide’s north, and Hume City hosting a second consecutive Cup game at ABD Stadium as they meet Sydney Olympic.

Similar to the Round of 32, FOX SPORTS will provide updates and crosses to the other six matches in the Round of 16 during their broadcasts of Adelaide United v Sydney FC and Rockdale City Suns v Melbourne Victory.

The other six non broadcast matches will also be streamed online at www.foxsports.com.au/football/ffa-cup/ffacupondemand and Apple TV via FOX SPORTS Now.

All matches will kick off at 7:30pm AEST with the two games in Adelaide to commence at 7.00pm ACST (local time).
