The 2018 FFA Cup Round 1 and 2 draws have been announced today.
The initial draw for the opening rounds of matches was carried out today by Northern NSW Football’s (NNSWF) CEO David Eland and Senior Officer – Premier Competitions Liam Bentley at the Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility.
The draws were broken into two ‘Conferences’, a Southern and Northern Conference.
For NNSWF Member Clubs depending on the number of teams entered within each Conference, some Zones including FMNC and NCF will commence from Round 1 and others including FFNC and NIF from Round 2 as outlined on the applicable fixture draw.
The Round numbers were designed to align with the National FFA Cup Round structure for Member Federations (Rounds 1 to 7) before Member Clubs advanced to the National FFA Cup Round of 32.
Furthermore, multiple byes have been included in Round 1 fixtures to eliminate further byes throughout the course of the competition.
