Football Federation Australia (FFA) has today confirmed the format of the inaugural FFA Cup in 2014, with draw principles that give grassroots clubs every chance to be giant-killers against the elite of the Hyundai A-League.
Preliminary matches involving over 600 clubs across Australia have commenced this month ahead of the national knock-out FFA Cup Round of 32 kicking off in late July.
That is the stage when the 10 Hyundai A-League clubs will join the 22 clubs who will have qualified from feeder cup competitions in eight states and territories – Queensland, NSW, Northern NSW, Victoria, ACT, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia.
The study by Queensland University researchers shows soccer players are more likely to "take a dive" when a game is drawn and they are near the attacking end, in the hope of securing a penalty.

Australind defeated Dunsborough 1-0 to win the Carnival old Normie scoring the winner.
We think a couple of players are missing from this photo.
The Force put up a good fight tonight in the first 45 mins but found themselves down 1-0 by halftime, the team fought back when Ollie McGee scored from one of his classic headers. At full time the score was one each then to penalties with Floreat coming out on top, Jamie Oakey in goal. FT1-1 Penalties 4-2
The Force were very competitive and can think themselves unlucky not to win in normal time.
Bayswater showed their class by thrashing Inglewood 5-1 halftime score 2-1.

Another great move by the City of Bunbury they obviously have no regard for history by taking down the honor boards at the Soccerdrome Hall which is now a community hall.
They have even taken down the brass plaque of the State Government Minister Wilson commemorating the opening of the hall in 1986.
What is the reason for this, we would like to know, and did they notify anybody of this mean spirited act.
Most of the people who originally built this facility were mostly migrant families who put a lot of time and labour to have a place that was theirs. We reckon it was a local government act of vandalism to try and wipe out what these families had contributed to the community in general.
The Yoongarilup team was one of the early teams who played in the Busselton group and was started by Spanish migrant Michael Torrent, he went on to have three sons who played for this team, Joe, Frank and Lou.
Joe later in life became the President of the Busselton Shire and Lou was inducted into the South West Soccer Hall of Fame at the age of 89 years in 2004.
The building in the photo is believed to be the Yoongarilup Hall that still exists today and is located just off the Busselton - Nannup road.

Eatonian may have looked at the Junior Allocations.
The rumour has probably come from the FW junior allocations where no teams named Bunbury Forum Force are mentioned but teams named Southern Force are, it might be an oversight but why change the name in all divisions and include the term Southern. When the first edition of allocations were posted the name was Bunbury Forum Force.
Below is an example of the division allocations now.
