Supporters wishing to travel to Perth for this Sunday's Grand Final are advised that there are a number of commercial airline seats still on sale, which has led to Sydney FC deciding against chartering a flight to Perth with the airlines still representing the best value for money.
The Sky Blues expect to be backed by a very vocal support at Optus Stadium on Sunday as Steve Corica’s men look to win a record equalling fourth Hyundai A-League Championship.
Chief Executive Danny Townsend confirmed flights to Western Australia were still readily available.
“We looked into chartering a flight to Perth for our supporters this weekend but with a number of commercial flights still having seats available we made the decision not to do so,” he said.
“It would also not have been a cost-effective solution with many flights to Perth still reflecting a cheaper price than the cost of the charter per head.
“However, we are working with the airlines to ensure that all our supporters who wish to travel to Perth for the Grand Final will be able to get there, and should flights become exhausted there is potential to increase capacity,” Townsend concluded.
The Sky Blues will meet Perth Glory in the Grand Final which kicks off at 6.30pm AEST on Sunday evening.
Any supporters not travelling to Perth can head to Sydney FC’s Home Away From Home at The Star Sydney to watch the game alongside a number of Sydney FC staff and former players from 5pm AEST.
