2017 Leo Baumgartner Cup

July 25th, 2017

The 2017 Leo Baumgartner Cup will be played Tuesday 1st August between North Coast Football Zone’s two FFA Cup winners Coffs United Lions and Coffs Coast Tigers.

In the FFA Cup, Coffs Coast Tigers lost to Byron Bay FC at Lismore, whilst Coffs City United beat Bangalow SC to progress to the final qualifying round in Newcastle. The Lions came just shy of the Westfield FFA Cup Round of 32, losing 3-1 to Broadmeadow Magic.

Now both teams will face off in the annual Cup, named after national football icon Leo Baumgartner, who dedicated his life to grassroots football, and spent several years coaching locally following a successful career abroad.

Urunga Raiders won the shield last year, beating Coffs United 3-0 to progress through to the FFA Cup. This year, due to a re-structure of the FFA Cup qualifying rounds, the shield stands alone as a commemorative match to remember a servant of the game.
