Australia Cup 2024 Round of 32: Who will South Melbourne FC face?

·

The fixtures for the Australia Cup 2024 Round of 32 have been revealed following the Official Draw on Wednesday, June 19.

Broadcast live on 10 Play, the Draw – undertaken by former Isuzu UTE A-League striker, Roy O’Donovan – has delivered several exciting match ups to open the Final Rounds, including eight fixtures in which National Premier League (NPL) sides host Isuzu UTE A-League Men opposition.

Headlining the Victorian contingent of teams will be Oakleigh Cannons FC, who host reigning Australia Cup Winners, Sydney FC in what shapes as an exciting rematch following Oakleigh’s defeat of the Sky Blues in the Australia Cup 2022 Quarter Finals. Fellow Victorians, FC Melbourne Srbija – plying their trade in Victoria’s NPL3 – will host the Modbury Jets SC from South Australia.

A minimum of two matches will be played in Western Australia, with Perth RedStar FC to face Lions FC (Football Queensland) and Edgeworth Eagles FC (Football Northern NSW) – the oldest team to patriciate in the Australia Cup – traveling across the country to meet Olympic Kingsway SC.

In their debut Australia Cup Final Rounds appearance, Capital Football’s O’Connor Knights SC and Darwin Hearts FC (Football Northern Territory) will host Australia Cup 2022 Winners and Isuzu UTE A-League Men outfit, Macarthur FC and Australia Cup regulars, Hume City FC (Football Victoria) respectively.

Blacktown City FC – who have twice reached the Australia Cup Quarter Finals – will take on the most successful team in Australia Cup history in Adelaide United FC, while fellow NSW NPL side, NWS Spirit FC will welcome the Glenorchy Knights FC from Tasmania.

In the 10th iteration of the Australia Cup in its modern form, Northern NSW’s Lambton Jaffas FC will face a tough test against Melbourne Victory FC, while it will be a battle of the NPL heavyweights with Queensland’s Olympic FC taking on New South Wales’ APIA Leichhardt FC in a tantalising inter-state clash.

As it was in 2023, the Australia Cup 2024 Playoffs will feature the four clubs that finished 9th to 12th in the Isuzu UTE A-League Men 2023/24 regular season.

Brisbane Roar FC (9th) will face Perth Glory FC (12th) on Tuesday, 23 July, before Newcastle Jets FC (10th) go up against Western United FC (11th) on Wednesday, 24 July at Darwin Football Stadium at Larrakia Park.

The winner of Brisbane Roar FC and Perth Glory FC will take on fellow Isuzu UTE A-League outfit Melbourne City FC at home, while Newcastle Jets FC or Western United FC will travel to play Rockdale Ilinden FC in New South Wales.

The Australia Cup 2024 Round of 32 will be played over two (2) weeks from late-July to mid-August.

It’s anticipated that venues, dates and timings for the Round of 32 will be made available next week, as Football Australia works with participating clubs and Member Federations to navigate ground availability.
