Football Australia's new broadcast deal means a makeover for the popular FFA Cup, with decision-makers opting to showcase the competition via a new avenue.

A place in the Asian Champions League is also up for grabs for the winner of the 32-team tournament.

The competition kicked off in September 2021. Here's what you need to know.

When did the FFA Cup begin?

Beset by scheduling issues from the outset, with lockdowns still an issue across the country, the competition got underway in September 2021 with the round of 32. A vast number of games have had to be shifted throughout the competition, with the round of 16 held over 2 stages as a result.
