Date and Time
Lions FC Stadium
133 Pine Rd, Richlands QLD 4077, Australia
The FFA Cup is a national knockout tournament run by Football Federation Australia in conjunction with every State and Territory Member Federation in the country.
The competition commences with the Preliminary Rounds before moving into the Final Rounds (from the Round of 32 onwards), the stage when the 10 Hyundai A-League clubs join the fray.
Each and every cup tie must be decided on the day, with extra time and penalties to decide results of matches drawn after 90 minutes.
2017 saw a new record of FFA Cup entrants, with 721 clubs around the country competing in the Preliminary Rounds. That total increased to 732 clubs with the inclusion of the ten Hyundai A-League clubs and the reigning NPL Champions of Australia, who received automatic entry to the Round of 32.
In 2018 Lions FC qualified as 1 of 2 Brisbane region teams along with Olympic FC. Coincidentally, both teams drew each other in the Round of 32 and will face each other at Lions Stadium on Wednesday the 25th July with a 7.30pm kick off.
