FFA Cup 2021 Round of 16 details confirmed

The FFA Cup 2021 Round of 16 will begin with two massive derby fixtures in South Australia and Queensland later this month.

Three-time FFA Cup Winners Adelaide United will face South Australian opposition for the first time in the competition’s history, coming up against National Premier Leagues SA side Adelaide Olympic.

Olympic qualified for the last 16 for the second time in their history, knocking off ECU Joondalup in Perth last month. Meanwhile, Adelaide United needed extra-time to also defeat Western Australian opposition, with victory over Floreat Athena.

The two Adelaide sides will meet on Sunday, 17 October at VALO Sports Centre, with kick-off scheduled for 3pm local time (3:30pm AEDT).

In the other fixture, two clubs that are very well known to each other in Lions FC and Brisbane Roar will face off for a spot in the Quarter Finals on Sunday, 24 October.

Lions FC reached the next round with a resounding win over Football Northern Territory’s Casuarina FC, while Brisbane Roar defeated local side Peninsula Power in the opening match of the 2021 Round of 32.

The all-Brisbane Round of 16 clash will be played at North Ipswich Reserve, with kick-off scheduled for 3:30pm local time (4:30pm AEDT).

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

With Victorian and New South Wales clubs returning to training from Monday, 11 October, Football Australia are aiming to be in a position to confirm match details for the outstanding Round of 32 fixtures in the coming weeks in line with respective state roadmaps out of lockdown.
