The hearing has been set down for Tuesday July 10 and will be attended by the player and his legal representative.
The Irishman copped a lengthy suspension following his high boot lunge in the 93rd minute of this year's A-League Grand Final which resulted in a sickening blow to the head of Melbourne Victory goalkeeper, Lawrence Thomas. 
The ban is one of the most severe in recent A-League history, eclipsing the penalties handed out for Kevin Muscat's tackle on Adrian Zahra in 2011 and O'Donovan's own prior offence for headbutting Manny Muscat in 2015.
It would see O'Donovan miss the 2018 FFA Cup matches and a fair chunk of the 2018/19 A-League season.
At the time of the initial ruling, the Jets said it was "they were "extremely disappointed with the outcome of this hearing and will immediately lodge an appeal on O’Donovan’s behalf.
"The club would like to thank Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) for their support of Roy during this process, and their tireless work in building his defence."
