I'd be very surprised if it was, given they didn't even play the Logan Bogans there. We'll see.

Looks like the game is going to be played at ServiceFM Stadium at Gepps Cross.
Shame, out in the middle of nowhere but they're still expecting a sell out in the 7k stadium.

Edit: Got my tix. Isn't too bad for me as Im studying the next day from home and don't start till 9.30am

She was a windy, rainy one on Wednesday night at Gepps Cross. I'm talking very heavy rain, and wind blowing it in at 90 degrees at one point.

Modbury were by no means disgraced against Macarthur although the scoreline blew out in the end.

The scores from Wednesday:

Modbury Jets* 0-4 Macarthur - crowd 1,080
Bentleigh (Vic.) 1-2 Sydney - crowd 911

* = from the second tier in state soccer

Adelaide CIty will play Adelaide United on Wednesday night. Tickets:

I would suggest getting there early, as the grandstand roof only spans half the grandstand.

AU get up in penalties, very happy with the performance by City though.
The amateurs were notably smaller than the pros and put up a great fight.

Not sure if you call the current Adelaide City team amateurs ..... whilst they have full-time jobs/ study majority would be on FFA Pro Contracts ( > $200 per week over 30 weeks) .

Good game and Pezos is a very very good coach with potential for greater things.

The beauty of the Australian Cup at this stage is A League clubs in pre season mode as NPL/State League clubs at the end of their season.

Also , the reason why both games were played at ServiceFM Stadium and not at Adelaide City/Modbury , neither ground as the require lighting for games shown on TV.

The Round of 16 wrapped up last night:

Sydney United 1-1 Western (AET - Sydney United won 4-3 on pens) - crowd 1,358
Peninsula Power (Qld.) 2-1 Green Gully (Vic.) - crowd 1,190
Adelaide City 2-2 Adelaide United (AET - Adelaide United won 4-1 on pens) - crowd 3,327
Melbourne City 1-2 Wellington - crowd 2,067
Oakleigh (Vic.) 5-3 Brisbane City (AET) - crowd 650
Avondale (Vic.) 2-2 Brisbane (AET - Brisbane won 4-1 on pens) - crowd 500

I was a little disappointed by the crowd last night. The weather and location may have put a few off. I think United would be fairly disappointed with their performance considering how good they were in their first hit out last month against the Jets. Fair play though to City who kept at it despite clearly tiring in extra time.

The draw for the quarter finals - likely to be played in early-mid-September - is as follows:

Adelaide United v Brisbane
Macarthur v Wellington
Oakleigh (Vic.) v Sydney
Peninsula Power (Qld.) v Sydney United

Thus a state league team is guaranteed to make the semis.

It was never going to be played at Oakden, but I was surprised that last night's game wasn't at Marden given that City played their home game there in the Round of 32.

The quarters wrapped up last night. United went down to Brisbane in a pretty insipid performance, topped off when Ibusuki got sent off. Meanwhile, Oakleigh knocked off Sydney in this edition's second cupset.

Peninsula Power (Qld.) 0-1 Sydney United - crowd 1,500
Oakleigh (Vic.) 2-1 Sydney - crowd 2,142
Adelaide United 1-2 Brisbane - crowd 2,511
Macarthur 2-0 Wellington - crowd 1,521

The semi finals will be:

Sydney United v Brisbane
Oakleigh (Vic.) v Macarthur

Well there'll be a new Australia Cup winner this year. Sydney United knocked out an A-League team for the second time this season, getting past the Roar in extra time thanks to a brilliant team goal. The nazi salutes performed by one of their supporters on camera hopefully won't be repeated in the final. Meanwhile, Macarthur won comfortably tonight and will start favourites in the final which will be played at a venue TBD, on Saturday 1 October.

Sydney United 3-2 Brisbane (AET) - crowd 3,177
Oakleigh (Vic.) 2-5 Macarthur - crowd 5,200
