Australia - FFA Cup Can't Post or Reply Privately

Surprised that this has not been featured on here.
I'm watching a match live now on YouTube.
Gold Coast Knights v Brisbane Strikers...
Logistics in this country mean that the competition is regionalised and each region has qualifiers to the first round proper.
21 Teams and the NPL Champions join the 10 A-League Teams.
Even Sunday league teams are allowed to enter.
Plenty to be found on Wiki obviously.

The Qualifying Rounds are organised by the state federations and in some states double up as the state cups.
I too have seen a few games on You Tube. Tomorrow (8/6) all the Northern New South Wales quarter-finals are being played on the same ground in Lake Macquarie.
South Australia have only 1 place in the last 32 through the quallifying rounds plus Campbelltown City the NPL champions.
New South Wales have 5, Victoria and Queensland 4,Northern NSW and Western Australia have 2 each and Tasmania, Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory 1 each. I have seen matches from all the states and territories apart from Northern Territory, the standard of football and grounds varies quite a bit.
There are a total of 740 teams entered this year, including Wellington Phoenix who have to play their game(s) in Australia.
A few weeks ago I saw Australian National University beat Belconnen United in the Capital qualifying round. This was switched to a 3g pitch with spectator accomodation on one side only. Made me wonder how bad their own ground was!

I like the way that the draw is conducted for this stage of the competition.
The 10 A-League teams are in Pot A and the 22 National Federation teams are in Pot B.
6 teams - 3 ties are drawn from Pot A ensuring 3 A-League matches.
18 teams - 9 ties are drawn from Pot B ensuring that 9 NF clubs at least progress to the last 16.
Then that leaves four teams from each Pot.
Pot B, the National Federation clubs are drawn at home to the A-League ensuring a big home tie and the chance of some giant killing.

FFA draw.

Sydney FC v Brisbane Roar
Perth Glory v Western Sydney Warriors
Melbourne Victory v Newcastle Jets

Tigers FC v Hume City
South Hobart v Marconi Stallions
Adelaide Olympic v Floreat Athena
Magpies Crusaders v Coomera Colts
Olympic FC v Bayswater City
St George v Sydney United 58
Darwin Olympic v Edgeworth Eagles
FC Bulleen Lions v Moreland Zebras
Mount Druit Town Rangers v Manly United

Maitland FC v Central Coast Mariners
Melbourne Knights v Adelaide United
Campbelltown City v Melbourne City
Brisbane Strikers v Wellington Pheonix

This draw guarantees that one level 3 club will make the last 16 as the Melbourne derby Bulleen v. Moreland Zebras has two teams from the NPL Victoria 2. There are also 2 Sydney derbies.
There is one other level 3 club, St. George in the draw and Coomera Colts are from a regional league in Queensland so I think that makes them level 4.


Have Western Sydney Wanderers changed their suffix to Warriors or is this an error?
