The FFA Cup Round of 32 Draw will be held on Thursday 8th July, 2021 from 7.30pm AEST, to be streamed LIVE on the Capital Football and FFA Cup Facebook pages as well as the My Football YouTube account.
The Draw process and principles will look at little different this year, with clubs being placed into four zones for the Round of 32; East (12 clubs), North (6 clubs) South (8 clubs) and West (6 clubs).
Tigers FC have been placed in the East Zone, with four A-League and seven Member Federation clubs.
In 2021 the Round of 32 is made up of 10 A-League clubs, the 2019 National Premier Leagues Champion (Wollongong Wolves from New South Wales), as well as 21 Member Federation clubs from the 731 that have entered from across Australia in the Preliminary Rounds. In total, the FFA Cup 2021 will feature 744 clubs nationally.
