2018 Season Calendar Goes Live
All The Key Football Dates For 2018
Football Federation Victoria has released its 2018 season calendar with all the key football dates for the New Year.
See all the details in full including the memo from FFV Executive Manager - Football George Angelopoulos here.
The dates have aligned in 2018 in order for NPL Grand Final day to be a triple header. The gala day will now feature the NPL 2 / NPL Promotion-Relegation playoff, NPL Women's and NPL men's Grand Finals to all take place at the same venue back to back to back.
Heidelberg United has automatically qualified for the Westfield FFA Cup Round of 32, meaning Victoria will send five teams to the national stage for the first time. Victoria will still send four clubs through qualifying, plus Heidelberg United. It means a playoff match will be held to fit the five teams into four to comprise the Dockerty Cup semi-finals, the specific details of which will be announced at a later date.
For the third straight year, FFV will live stream all four FFA Cup Round 7 matches, where winners qualify for the Round of 32.
Qualifying Round details for the Westfield FFA Cup and team entry opportunities will be communicated at a later date.
The Premier Competitions season will kick off with the men's and women's Community Shields on the third weekend of February. See more key dates including community competitions here.
