Westfield FFA Cup Round of 16 draw revealed

The Westfield FFA Cup 2015 Round of 16 will see reigning Cup holders Adelaide United host Sydney FC, the teams having met at the Quarter Final stage last year, with the other all-Hyundai A-League encounter seeing Melbourne City FC host Wellington Phoenix.

Former Socceroos Ante Milicic and Pablo Cardozo conducted the draw on the set of Fox Sports News in Sydney earlier today with the Round of 16 throwing up three Member Federation v Hyundai A-League showdowns, two all-Hyundai A-League encounters and three all-Member Federation fixtures.

The draw also sees three Victoria v New South Wales matches comprising an encounter between Rockdale City Suns and Melbourne Victory plus two intriguing clashes between PlayStation 4 NPL heavyweights, with Victoria’s Heidelberg United and Hume City pitted against New South Wales clubs Sydney United 58 FC and Sydney Olympic respectively.

Sydney United players celebrate winning the penalty shootout against South Hobart.

The other two Member Federation v Hyundai A-League fixtures feature Brisbane’s Lions FC hosting last year’s finalists Perth Glory, while Palm Beach Sharks drew another home game, this time against reigning AFC Champions League winners Western Sydney Wanderers FC.

The remaining all-Member Federation match ups see PlayStation 4 NPL champions, MetroStars from Adelaide, hosting Oakleigh Cannons.

MetroStars FC players celebrate their second goal against Blacktown City.
