Sydney FC's 2012/13 Membership Program is offering free public transport to all matches at Allianz Stadium, sending out a strong message that the Sky Blues will not be neglecting any of its loyal fans, no matter where they live in Sydney.

“Sydney FC has Members and fans all over Sydney and we will not be deserting them,” said Sydney FC CEO Tony Pignata. “Sydney FC has worked hard over the last eight years to form relationships with Members, fans, football clubs and associations all over Sydney and we will be loyal to those people in the face of what is an exciting rivalry with Western Sydney.”

Sydney FC Members will also have the price of Public Transport included in Membership for the 2012/13 season, after a deal was struck with Transport for NSW to allow Sydney FC fans to use rail, bus and ferries to get to Allianz Stadium on matchday.

Sydney FC becomes the first sports team across any code in Sydney to offer the integrated ticket offer for all home games.

Members and ticket holders will be entitled to travel on all CityRail services, the Special Event shuttle buses between Central and Moore Park, all regular Sydney Buses (STA) services, Liverpool to Parramatta Tway buses and Sydney Ferries at no additional cost.

The integrated ticketing deal will also include fans who pre-purchase matchday tickets to Sydney FC-s games at Allianz Stadium, which will include the Derby with the Western Sydney Wanderers on December 15 and two clashes with arch rivals Melbourne Victory.

Members and fans will be able to travel free from as far away as Newcastle, Goulburn, Wollongong and Lithgow, helping Sydney FC fans based all over the Greater Sydney region. Free buses will also run between Central Station and Allianz Stadium from two hours before kick off through to an hour after each home game. (This time limit only applies to the Moore Park bus shuttle service - all other travel can take place all day).

“We received a lot of feedback from Members and fans regarding the transport to and from Allianz Stadium and we-re happy to announce that all Members and ticket holders will travel free to Sydney FC games on Public Transport,” Pignata said.

“A lot of our Members and fans come from areas that have a convenient public transport system to be able to get to Allianz Stadium and they can now enjoy that system free of charge.

“Sydney FC also acknowledges the financial burden travelling to and from any sporting event can have on families and this should help lighten that burden.”

Sydney FC will be hosting a Fan Day this Sunday 9th September as the Sky Blues take on the Newcastle Jets at Leichhardt Oval. Free entry for 2012 / 13 Members and lots for kids to do.

2012/13 Sydney FC Memberships are now on sale with Public Transport to and from the game from all over Sydney covered in the Membership price.

Existing Members have until Friday 7th September 2012 to renew at the loyalty discount price.
