Football history will be made tonight with the first ever FFA Cup match between a Member Federation club and a Hyundai A-League team, when Adelaide City  hosts the Western Sydney Wanderers  in Week 3 of the Round of 32 in the knock-out competition. 

And there will be another etching in the record books when Melbourne City (formerly Melbourne Heart)  plays its first official game under the new name against Sydney FC in Ballarat, in the third and final all-Hyundai A-League Round of 32 match-up.

The other two clashes see Victorian NPL club Bentleigh Greens  away to their NSW NPL counterparts Blacktown City , while Cairns based FNQ Heat  are also on the road against the Mark Rudan coached Sydney United 58 FC .

The Round of 32 continues with another four games next week, as A-League Champions Brisbane Roar make their debut in the comp against the Stirling Lions in Perth.
