FFA Cup draw a dream for Queensland minnow Coomera

After battling their way through a series of regional playoffs, Gold Coast club Coomera Colts is one of 32 teams in the pot for Wednesday's (AEST) FFA Cup draw.

The Gold Coast minnow are one of 32 teams - including 10 A-League clubs - in the pot for Wednesday's FFA Cup draw, having come through a gruelling series of regional qualifiers.

Founded in 1983, the Colts are among the smallest clubs to reach the national stage of the competition with the other three Queensland qualifiers all coming from the state's top-tier National Premier League competition.

And the biggest day in the history of the club can only be spoiled by one thing, in coach Steve MacDonald's opinion.

MacDonald says avoiding south-east Queensland pair Brisbane Strikers and Olympic FC are all he desires from the draw.

"The only two clubs I don't want to get to be honest with you are either Olympic or Brisbane Strikers, just because we've come this far I don't really want to play a team that's 45 minutes away up the road," MacDonald told AAP.

"An A-League team or an away trip would probably be the best for us."

Along with Coomera, other teams eyeing off a glamour tie against an A-League side include northern NSW qualifier Maitland FC and Victorian club Bulleen Lions - who are both in the round of 32 for the first time.

Brisbane Strikers are among several former NSL clubs represented in the draw, along with Sydney United, Marconi and Melbourne Knights.

The only A-League team not in Wednesday's draw is expansion club Western United, who will not compete in this year's FFA Cup.

The draw will be held at 7:30pm AEST.
