Football NSW has announced the official dates and venues for the highly anticipated Round 7 Australia Cup matches with the four winners advancing to the Round of 32.
The success Cup story so far has been that of the impressive run of Northern Suburbs Football Association side Northbridge FC. They may be an association side but don’t let that fool you as the team possess several former NPL and Football NSW League players with experience. The likes Nathan Separovic, Ricky Woodward, Hugo Forlico, Emilio Manos, and Braden Cheng are just some of the names that have seen them knockout the Mounties Wanderers and Dunbar Rovers enroute to Round 7. The club’s next challenge is defeating National Premier Leagues NSW Men’s side Mt Druitt Town Rangers, a team chasing its third involvement in the Round of 32.
League One Men’s side Inter Lions coached by John Theodoropoulos will be hoping his chargers can upset current NPL NSW Men’s high-flyers Rockdale Ilinden with the pair going toe to toe at Majors Bay Reserve.
Lambert Park will be electric as current NPL NSW Men’s table toppers APIA Leichhardt face old rivals Sydney Olympic in a match that is sure to bring out the fireworks.
While finally a team that is a regular Round of 32 entrant, last year’s Australia Cup finalists Sydney United 58 have drawn fellow NPL NSW Men’s side NWS Spirit FC.
All four matches will be live streamed exclusively on NPL.TV.
