FFA CUP HISTORY & WINNERS

The FFA Cup was formed in 2014 as the first national cup competition in Australian soccer and has become a popular tournament as part-time clubs take on the mighty A-League sides in the knockout cup.

Adelaide United were the inaugural winners in 2014 as they won 1-0 against Perth Glory, who were also runners-up in 2015 after losing 2-0 to Melbourne Victory. Melbourne City won the FFA Cup in 2016 with a 1-0 win over Sydney FC, who then became the fourth different side to win the competition in 2017 with a 2-1 extra-time victory over Adelaide United.

BETTING ON SOCCER

Betting on soccer has grown in popularity with a number of ways to place bets increasing dramatically in recent years. From simply backing the winner or result of a single match to predicting premiership winners, top goalscorers, wooden spoonists and whether or not a player will be yellow or red-carded, the opportunity to bet on soccer has never been greater.

A rundown of some of the types of bets you can place on soccer games is below:

Match Betting: Simply back the result, whether you think it will be a home win, an away win or a draw.

Correct Score: Predict the correct score in the game.

Over/Under Total Goals: Bet on whether you think there will be more or less than 2.5 goals in the game. If it ends 1-1, then it is under 2.5 goals. If it ends 3-2, then it is over 2.5 goals. Other totals are available - usually 0.5, 1.5, 3.5 and 4.5.

First Goalscorer: Predict who will get the first goal of the game. 

Both Teams To Score: If you think both teams will find the back of the net in the game, then this is the bet for you.

Handicap Betting: Bookmakers offer you the chance to bet on the result of the game but where one team starts with a handicap (usually one or two goals).

Premiership Betting: Back the team you think will be crowned premiers by winning the A-League Grand Final or the Premier League for example.

Wooden Spoon: Back the team you think will finish bottom of the ladder at the end of the regular season.

Top Goalscorer: Predict who will finish the season as the leading goalscorer in a selected league.
