The Central Coast Mariners will host an FFA Cup Semi-Final for the first time, with Alen Stajcic's side drawn to face Adelaide United for a spot in the 2019 final on Wednesday, 2nd October at Central Coast Stadium.
The match represents the second time that the Mariners have made the semi-finals, with the first coming back in the inaugural edition of the FFA Cup as we fell to Adelaide away from home.
Head Coach Alen Stajcic said he is looking forward to the game, and implored the Coast to get behind their team on a big stage.
"The team are all really excited now to be at this stage of the competition, and in particular the chance to play in front of our home fans," Stajcic said.
"We have had a few away games the last couple of rounds, so to be able to bring a game to our Central Coast supporters and let them show their passion is great."
"It's a great chance for our fans to show their support for the badge and the club, so the whole group is hoping to see as many fans at Central Coast Stadium as possible."
Ticketing details for the match will be released soon.
