    The Western Sydney Wanderers have drawn the Hellenic Athletic Club of Darwin in the FFA Cup Round of 32.

    Markus Babbel's managerial career at the Western Sydney Wanderers will kick off in the far north of Australia, as the Western Sydney Wanderers will head to the Darwin Football Stadium at the Marrara Sporting Precinct.

Their FFA Cup run saw them defeat Darwin Olympic 4-0, University Azzuri 2-0, Palmerston Rovers 5-0 and a demolition of Verdi FC by 9 goals to 0. Their key attacking weapon is Sulav Maskey who was born in Nepal and has played in their national youth teams. 

    The matches will be held over 4 match nights over a month from late July to August. With the FFA's draw tailored to ensure specific combinations of teams the fixtures for A-League team games are Adelaide United vs Central Coast, Perth Glory vs Melbourne Victory, Brisbane Roar vs Melbourne City.

    For the NPL vs NPL Fixtures, the draw is Northcote City vs Devonport, Port Melbourne vs Apia Leichardt, Lions FC vs Olympic FC, Heidelberg United vs Charlestown City Blues, Gwelup Croatia vs Adelaide Comets, Canberra FC vs Broadmeadow Magic, Cairns FC vs Armadale WA, Bonnyrigg White Eagles vs Hakoah East Sydney, Avondale FC vs Marconi.

    I've been there more times than i can count.

    It's hot hot hot.

    I'd recommend staying at the Vibe as there is a wave pool next door. You are close to the city centre but as a guide, Penrith city centre is bigger.

    It is The Dry (Winter) now.  All you will need to wear is a pair of shorts and a singlet.

    The fixture has received pretty good coverage in the 'NT News' newspaper - a back page headline and a 2/3 page article inside.

    I would attach a scan, but doesn't seem like I am able to.

    i reckon if the travelling fans get a selfie with a croc lighting a flare in the stadium we'll make the coveted front page.

    A croc ripping a flare would be pretty awesome, their arms / legs are quite stumpy but they might just be able to rip one.....getting them to smile usually isn't the problem.

    BREAKING NEWS: Boat intercepted near Darwin. A brave crocodile boarded the boat and alerted boarder force by igniting a maritime safety device he found on board. “We just want to watch the football” the passengers were heard shouting as they were taken into custody. Senior boarder force officials have commended the crocodile for his bravery.

    I believe the crocodile goes by the nickname of "dutton"

    I don't think you guys know how ****ed up crocodiles are. People who like to exercise near the water in darwin are told to stagger their running times.

    Apparently the crocodiles learn what time you run past and if they see a pattern they will wait for you and attack.

    Like 'oh it's 1:30 old mate is due to run past in 2 minutes'.

    ****'s messed up.

    A bloke once got on the front page by sticking a fire cracker up his arse and lighting it, so doing the same with a flare would probably work too...

    I am hoping for a Tues 24 July or next day game in Darwin, as I will be there (with wife) on those evenings at the end of an already booked holiday that starts at Uluru - if I am lucky, it could all work out. Will have to pack my Wanderers shirt!
