Perth Glory will head east to take on fellow A-League side, Newcastle Jets, in the Round of 32 of the Westfield FFA Cup following the draw which was held at the Fox Sports studios in Sydney earlier today.

The draw, which was conducted by former Socceroos, Paul Okon and former Perth Glory star, Mile Sterjovski, threw up some intriguing ties including the newly rebranded, Melbourne City against Sydney FC and both NPLWA representatives, Bayswater City and Stirling Lions drawn at home to Melbourne Victory and Brisbane Roar respectively.

The 32 teams in the inaugural Westfield FFA Cup competition comprise the ten Hyundai A-League clubs and 22 clubs from across seven States and Territories throughout the country.

Of the 22 state league clubs, nine - Adelaide City, Blacktown City, Brisbane Strikers, Hakoah Sydney City, Parramatta FC, South Coast Wolves, Sydney Olympic, Sydney United and Melbourne Knights - all have links back to the National Soccer League and may well provide Perth Glory with the opportunity to reignite some old rivalries in future rounds.

Whilst the Westfield FFA Cup 2014 Draw has now revealed who will meet who in the Round of 32, the specific match details in regards to the dates, venues and kick-off times will be announced on Monday 30 June 2014 after consideration of each participating club-s league fixtures as well as venue availability and suitability.

The 16 matches in the Round of 32 of the Westfield FFA Cup 2014 will be split over four weeks (29/30 July, 5/6 August, 12/13 August & 19/20 August), with four games scheduled each week either on Tuesday or Wednesday nights. Fox Sports will broadcast at least ten matches in the competition from the Round of 32 onwards, including all four Quarter Finals, both Semi Finals and the Westfield FFA Cup Final 2014.
