Lilys Football Centre to host big Westfield FFA Cup clash

31.08.2017

A rematch of last year’s Westfield FFA Cup Final will kick off a huge week of Quarter Finals football in September when Sydney FC hosts Melbourne City FC at Leichhardt Oval.

Graham Arnold’s Sky Blues will challenge Warren Joyce’s City side at the boutique Lilyfield venue on Wednesday 13 September 2017, with the game to be broadcast live on FOX SPORTS.

Melbourne City FC defeated Sydney FC 1-0 in last year’s Westfield FFA Cup decider – Caltex Socceroos star Tim Cahill scoring the only goal of the game in front of nearly 19,000 people at Melbourne’s AAMI Park.

On the same evening PS4 NPL outfit Heidelberg United will take on the inaugural Westfield FFA Cup Champions Adelaide United at Olympic Village in Victoria.

Seven days after the first two Westfield FFA Cup 2017 Semi-Finalists are determined in New South Wales and Victoria, the focus of football fans will shift to Seven Hills in Sydney’s west and Robina in Queensland to find out which other two Clubs will reach the final four.

On Wednesday 20 September 2017 FOX SPORTS will broadcast the all-Western Sydney stoush between Blacktown City FC and Western Sydney Wanderers FC live from what’s expected to be a heaving Lilys Football Centre.

Blacktown City FC knocked Central Coast Mariners out of the Westfield FFA Cup 2017 in the Round of 32, and Mark Crittenden’s men will have the chance to take another sizeable scalp when they take on the Wanderers – the club that represents their region in the Hyundai A-League.

Meanwhile, Gold Coast City FC’s Quarter Finals clash with South Melbourne FC will be held at the same time at CBUS Stadium in Queensland.

As well as broadcasting one match live and exclusive in full on each match night, FOX SPORTS will also live stream and provide updates from each evening’s other Quarter Finals fixture.

Ticketing information for each Westfield FFA Cup 2017 Quarter Finals match will be released in due course by each home club. Please visit www.theffacup.com.au/tickets for further details.
