The final Finalist of the Westfield FFA Cup 2017 will be determined on Tuesday evening when Western Sydney Wanderers FC hosts Adelaide United at Campbelltown Stadium in the second Semi Final of this year’s competition.
Earlier this month, last year’s runners up Sydney FC booked back-to-back Westfield FFA Cup Final appearances when they defeated South Melbourne FC 5-1 at Lakeside Stadium in Melbourne.
Tomorrow night the Hayden Foxe coached Wanderers will have the chance to reach their first ever Westfield FFA Cup Final, and set up a high-stakes Sydney Derby in the process.
Alternatively, inaugural Westfield FFA Cup Champions Adelaide United, now mentored by German coach Marco Kurz, could seal a return to the competition’s showpiece, as they did in 2014.
Should the Reds advance to this year’s Westfield FFA Cup Final, they could become the first side to lift the trophy twice in the competition’s short, yet proud history.
Western Sydney Wanderers FC progressed to the Semi Final stage of this year’s Westfield FFA Cup after defeating Wellington Phoenix in the Round of 32, knocking out PlayStation 4 (PS4) National Premier Leagues (NPL) sides Bentleigh Greens in the Round of 16 and then defeating and Blacktown City FC in the Quarter Finals.
Adelaide United booked their place in the final four of the Westfield FFA Cup 2017 after eliminating Hyundai A-League rivals Newcastle Jets and Melbourne Victory in the Rounds of 32 and 16 respectively then defeated PS4 NPL Victoria heavyweights Heidelberg United in the Quarter Finals last month.
Tuesday night’s clash between Western Sydney Wanderers FC and Adelaide United will be broadcast LIVE and exclusive in full on FOX SPORTS.
