Tuggeranong United FC take on South Hobart FC in the inaugural FFA cup tonight in Hobart.

Thanks to the FFA, Foxtel, Football Tasmania and South Hobart FC you will be able to watch the match streamed live online.

Please visit the South Hobart FC home page for the link.

A live viewing of the game is being hosted at the Burns Club, Kett St Kambah for football fans to recreate the atmosphere at the ground.

Kick-off is at 7:30pm AEST.

The two coaches are both wary of their opponents, who have never met before. A win for either club will almost guarantee a match up with an A-League club in the round of 16, a prospect that has supporters in Tuggeranong and Hobart excited.

“We are absolutely delighted with the prospect of going to Hobart to play,” Tuggeranong United Head Coach Steve Forshaw said. “As well as being an unknown challenge it represents an opportunity to gain experience that we would otherwise be unlikely to get close to. It’s fantastic for Tuggeranong and for local football. We are really looking forward to the challenge and representing the ACT in the FFA Cup.”

A send off for the Canberra team on Sunday night attracted a wide cross section of the club, with TUFC President Jon Thiele reminding the team that have the complete support of the members, who know that they will give their all on Tuesday evening in what will be the biggest match the club has ever played in. Tuggeranong United have also received plenty of support from their fellow Capital Football clubs, and well as from the peak body themselves, all of whom see the benefits of such a competition for regions such as the ACT.


The 2014 Westfield FFA Cup is the inaugural nation-wide knockout competition involving 22 club team qualifiers from all FFA affiliated State and Territory football federations. All 10 A-League clubs will also take part. This aims to generate exposure at the grassroots level and make this competition a true national event. The state-based qualifying tournaments involved over 600 clubs across Australia.

Good luck to our local Tuggies team!

Very well done to the boys! Great effort!

I was trying to work out who they play next, but its a draw for each round, and if you get the lucky draw 1 non a-league side is guaranteed a semifinal spot.

well done, lads!

actually an entertaining game [thanks so much to the south hobart fc for bringing us the stream] – made moreso by the unashamedly parochial commentary by folk very excited to have their side in a big cup and possessed of some lovely turns of phrase. it will ever be a slice of cheese.

…and Tuggeranong win (6-5) after a penalty shoot-out. Down to the final 16. Congratulations to the club.

I think they are basing the underdog tag on the fact that the South Hobart team have played against some quality opposition over the years and held their own. Tuggeranong United up until their 5-1 win last round in the local comp had lost 5 games in a row and conceded 18 goals. In any case, I agree with you Watto23 – the competition is a good idea. Imagine the experience for all the players involved.

Hard to gauge how any team out of the non a-league sides could be given too much favouritism. There were some lowly clubs who won last week. Its really only of benefit if you get to host an A-league club at home I imagine, but still a good idea.

From all the reports I have read Tuggeranong United will be major underdogs tonight. I guess they really have nothing to loose and everything to gain. Go Tuggies.
