Melbourne City FC and Sydney FC to live stream FFA Cup fixture

Melbourne City FC and Sydney FC will create a football first and stream Tuesday night's FFA Cup fixture live.

Melbourne City FC and Sydney FC will broadcast the first ever live stream of a competitive football match between two Hyundai A-League clubs when the two sides clash in the Westfield FFA Cup Tuesday night (kick off 7.30pm).

Both clubs will stream the game live on their club websites sydneyfc.com and melbournecityfc.com.au from 7.30pm when the game kicks off at Morshead Park in Ballarat.

The stream will be a first for Hyundai A-League clubs. Melbourne City FC CEO Scott Munn said: “The first two rounds of the FFA Cup have illustrated an appetite and desire for the magic of this competition, from grassroots to elite level.

“We hope the event will be enjoyed by those travelling to Morshead Park for the match , local fans in Ballarat and those who are unable to make the journey for what should be a fascinating encounter.”

Both clubs have worked in collaboration with partners Football Federation Australia (FFA), Fox Sports and Ballarat City Council to ensure Australian football fans will get the chance to see both club’s inaugural  Westfield FFA Cup match.

Visit Melbourne City FC’s or Sydney FC's official website on Tuesday for a live stream - and accompanying audio commentary stream - from 7.30pm.
