The 2019 FFA Cup has been contested by teams since February but will this week finally determine a winner. It'll be Adelaide United and Melbourne City playing it out in the FFA Cup Final for the trophy.
This is the third straight occasion Adelaide have reached the final and fourth time overall. Last year Adelaide defeated Sydney FC 2-1.
Melbourne City have only ever been here once before back in 2016 when they were also victorious over Sydney FC. To date it's the only trophy that the young club has ever won.

Who will win the FFA Cup Final?
Adelaide vs Melbourne City is sure to be a tightly contested affair. The clubs played as recently as Sunday in the Hyundai A-League, with Melbourne City winning 2-1.
There should be no surprises for Adelaide during Wednesday night's FFA Cup Final. The message from manager Gertjan Verbeek should be simple: mark Jamie Maclaren.
The City and Socceroos striker's boot is currently sizzling. Maclaren grabbed a brace against Adelaide on the weekend. He has scored four goals in his last two appearances for the national side including a hat-trick against Nepal.
His FFA Cup form is just as impressive, netting six goals to lead the entire competition. While he isn't the only talented player for Melbourne City FC he's key to winning the FFA Cup Final.
Adelaide have the benefit of home ground advantage during the match. The Reds are expecting a big turnout at Coopers Stadium with a vocal crowd.
In terms of playing talent, could the Victorians be haunted by two former players in Adelaide skipper Michael Jakobsen and midfielder Riley McGree? The latter scored against City on the weekend.
McGree is just 20 years old but one of the most promising footballers in Australia. He has been a consistent member of the junior Socceroos and last year was called up to the men's squad for the FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
When is the FFA Cup Final?
The FFA Cup Final kicks off at 7:30 AEDT on Wednesday 23 October.
Where is the FFA Cup Final?
