The Devonport Strikers FFA Cup Round of 32 game against Northcote City FC, will be played on Tuesday 7 August, at the Veneto Club in Bulleen. Kicking off at 7:30pm.

There was some initial confusion as to where the game would be played with Northcote’s regular home venue at the John Cain Memorial Reserve unavailable for use. After initially being advertised by FFA as taking palce in Oakleigh, the game will in fact be played at the nearby FC Bulleen Lions ground, the Veneto Club. The Strikers will be hoping the neutral venue with help negate some of their Victorian opponent’s home game advantage.

The game is third and final of the three matchday’s that comprise the Round of 32 stage of the competition with July 25 and August 1st the other two dates.

The game falls in the midst of a particularly tough week for Devonport, who will have the Cup tie sandwiched in between potentially decisive games against Hobart Zebras and South Hobart in the NPL Tasmania competition.

For those unable to make the game, Fox Sports will live stream and provide updates and crosses to all matches in the FFA Cup 2018 Round of 32. Further information about how to access this will be provided closer to kick off.

Ticketing information for each of the FFA Cup 2018 Round of 32 matches will be released in due course by each home club. Please visit for further details.
