10 play isn't looking too bad, clean professional looking graphics, commentators that know what they're talking about.

Look forward to the rest of the FFA Cup ✌ (Hopefully the next rounds are on FTA...)
The south game with city was meant to be on fta I think. So should she some in the next few weeks.

Unlucky late penalty given, the Knights almost were apologetic when they scored it

With todays announcement of Victoria getting out of lockdown earlier than expected lets finally get this party rolling.

FFA Cup 2021 set for huge November with matches galore

The FFA Cup 2021 will continue next month with Football Australia confirming match details for several Round of 32 fixtures.
FFA Cup 2021 Round of 32 to continue from Saturday, 6 November in NSW, ACT & VIC

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.

On Wednesday, 24 November a massive Sydney derby takes place between another NSL giant and National Second Tier aspirant, Sydney Olympic FC, and A-League powerhouse Sydney FC at Belmore Sports Ground, while Tigers FC will take on the historic APIA Leichhardt at Viking Park on the same night, with both games scheduled for 7:30pm AEDT.

All games are available to watch live & free on 10 Play, with international viewers able to tune in via the My Football YouTube channel. Ticketing details will be confirmed shortly.

Due to border closures, the Round of 32 clash between Victoria’s Avondale FC and Tasmania’s Devonport Strikers will be confirmed at a later date.

FFA Cup 2021 Round of 16 begins this Sunday, 17 October with an Adelaide derby
Meanwhile, the first FFA Cup 2021 Round of 16 fixtures commence this Sunday, 17 October as Adelaide Olympic host Adelaide United at VALO Football Centre. This has been made possible with a shift to regionalise the Round of 32 and 16 into designated Zones, ensuring the competition was able to commence in September in parts of the country.

The Round of 16 will then continue next Sunday, 24 October with Lions FC welcoming Brisbane Roar to Lions Stadium in Richlands. Details for both matches can be found here.

Football Australia is working with all stakeholders to schedule the remaining Round of 32 matches and subsequent Round of 16 fixtures in line with State Government Public Health Orders. It is envisaged that Round of 16 matches will be drawn and played in quick succession across November and early December, before the competition moves away from Zones for the Quarter Finals. Details and dates for the later stages of the competition will be released in due course.

An update on the FFA Cup 2021 Final Rounds Play Off matches
Additionally, the FFA Cup Play Off matches between Perth Glory and Melbourne Victory as well as Western United and Newcastle Jets are to be confirmed, with Football Australia working diligently with clubs and the A-Leagues to schedule these fixtures.

Once the Play Offs are confirmed, Football Australia will then schedule the final two Round of 32 fixtures which will see Adelaide City take on the winner of Perth Glory and Melbourne Victory, and Wellington Phoenix meet the winner of the match between Western United and Newcastle Jets.

Still struggling to see how the Peth V Victory game will go ahead in Perth with the current WA boarder restrictions and quarantine rules. Hopefully an outcome is made soon maybe in a neutral venue. in S.A or N.T?

lol it's not Victory's fault that the W.A government have put in place harsh boarder restrictions. What the F.A is proposing would be fine. Otherwise organise a neutral venue in S.A or something.

I think a neutral venue in around 3 weeks is the best option.

Due to the border restrictions between Western Australia and Victoria, Perth Glory will face Melbourne Victory on Wednesday, 24 November in Adelaide.

The venue for the clash will be Marden Sports Complex, with a kick-off of 7:30pm local time (8:00pm AEDT).

The winner will then face Adelaide City in the Round of 32, again in Adelaide.

Football Australia can confirm the FFA Cup 2021 Final Rounds Play Off matches between Western United FC and Newcastle Jets & Perth Glory and Melbourne Victory will be played alongside Round of 32 matches in November.
With the top eight at the end of the A-League Men season automatically qualifying for the Round of 32, the Play Offs were introduced for the first time in 2021 as a way of determining the final two spots allocated to the competition.

The Play Offs were originally scheduled for June, but COVID-19 lockdowns and border closures forced the matches between 10th placed Western United FC and 11th placed Newcastle Jets, and Perth Glory and Melbourne Victory, who finished 9th and 12th respectively, to be postponed. 

But with restrictions easing across Victoria and New South Wales, both Play Offs have been locked in starting with Western United FC and Newcastle Jets on Saturday, 13 November at GMHBA Stadium in Geelong, with a kick-off of 7pm AEDT. 

The winner of the match will advance to the Round of 32, where they will face Wellington Phoenix FC for a spot in the Round of 16. Details for that match will be confirmed after November 13, with hosting rights going to Western United FC or Newcastle Jets. 

Meanwhile, Perth Glory will face Melbourne Victory on Wednesday, 24 November in Adelaide, due to the border restrictions between Western Australia and Victoria. The venue for that clash will be Marden Sports Complex, with a kick-off of 7:30pm local (5pm AWST, 8:00pm AEDT).

The winner of Glory and Victory will then face Adelaide City in the Round of 32, with City hosting A-League opposition in what they hope will be a repeat of their 2014 Cupset in the competition (a 1-0 win over Western Sydney Wanderers).
