This weekend there will be a photographer at Point Cook v Churchill United at Grange Reserve in Hoppers Crossing and Kings Domain v Wangaratta City at Clifton Park in Brunswick.
The feature game will be heading to the northern or western suburbs in Round 2.
The referee for this weekend's feature game between Keysborough SC and Darebin United will be Senko Rastocic. Senior referees have been appointed as mentors to young assistants in selected games of the early Westfield FFA Cup rounds.
"The FFA Cup is a great opportunity for the referees department to use for development purposes and give referees experience of a national cup competition and being involved in cup games," FFV Referee Youth Development Manager Chris Hope said.
"The assistant referees officiating with Hary Milas at last round's feature game had only done a handful of senior lines thus far. Both are members of the new FFV Referees Academy which was formed in 2016 to support the referee development pathway in Victoria.
"Both benefited from working on a game with a referee of Hary Milas' experience and thoroughly enjoyed the experience."
