The newly formed club, which plays in the Hackney & Leyton League Premier Division, has won its first 10 games in all competitions and is made up of a group of friends who grew up playing together at Mabley Green.
Many represented the borough's junior district teams, plus academies at Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Millwall, Wimbledon and more, and they face Priory Sports, of the Chelmsford Sunday League, on Sunday at 1pm.
Manager Alan Bond said: "The story of the players growing up together and forming this team is extremely special.
"The enjoyment and quality of football has been exceptional and our club ethos is focused on being the best representation of Hackney we possibly can.
"Playing on the main show pitch at Hackney Marshes in a National FA Cup competition is very fitting and gives us a great opportunity and sense of occasion early in our journey as a club. We hope as many people in the borough as possible can come down and support us."
