Immediately after full-time in the final four fixtures of the Round of 32, new Football Australia Chief Football Officer, Ernie Merrick, helped to conduct the Round of 16 draw from Network 10’s headquarters in Sydney.

The draw threw up some scintillating ties, highlighted by an ‘Adelaide Derby’ between famous South Australian club Adelaide City FC (SA) against A-League outfit and three-time Australia Cup Winners Adelaide United FC.

Indeed, South Australia will be a focal point for the Round of 16, with Modbury Jets SC (SA) from the second tier of South Australian football welcoming the A-League’s Macarthur FC, mentored by Dwight Yorke, to the city of churches.

There will be an all A-League meeting between Melbourne City FC and Wellington Phoenix FC, while Oakleigh Cannons FC (VIC) and Brisbane City FC (QLD) will both fancy their chances to advance to the quarter final stage when they go head-to-head in Victoria.

Bentleigh Greens SC (VIC) will seek to slay an A-League giant when Sydney FC arrive at Kingston Heath Soccer Complex, while Peninsula Power FC (QLD) will be gunning to back-up their Round of 32 heroics when they welcome an equally inspired Green Gully SC (VIC) outfit to the Sunshine State.

Sydney United 58 FC (NSW) will relish the opportunity to tackle an A-League side when they meet Western United FC in New South Wales, while Avondale FC (VIC) will also have the chance to produce a ‘Cupset’ when they challenge Brisbane Roar FC in Victoria.
