Sydney FC will host the Westfield FFA Cup Final 2017 at Allianz Stadium against Adelaide United on Tuesday 21 November 2017.
Football Federation Australia (FFA) today confirmed the venue and kick-off time for November’s showpiece, the second consecutive Cup Final for the Sky Blues.
Head Coach Graham Arnold’s team booked back-to-back Westfield FFA Cup Final appearances after they beat South Melbourne FC 5-1 at Lakeside Stadium in Melbourne.
Sydney FC Chief Executive Officer Danny Townsend said it was just reward for the Sky Blues’ Members and fans to be hosting the clash.
“This is fantastic news for our club, particularly our Members and fans who will get to watch Sydney FC in a second home final within the space of seven months,” Townsend said.
“Our players have worked incredibly hard to make the FFA Cup Final for the second successive season and they are rewarded with the chance to play the final in front of our Sky Blues’ Members and supporters.
“I encourage every Sydneysider and Sky Blue fan to make the effort to come out and give our boys their backing to win our third trophy this year to become one of the only clubs to hold all three domestic honours at once.
“It will be another marvellous occasion.”
FFA chief executive David Gallop said: “FFA would like to congratulate both Sydney FC and Adelaide United for reaching the Westfield FFA Cup Final for a second time.
“Both teams have performed strongly in this year’s competition and deserve to be in the Final.
“FFA considered a range of factors in deciding between Adelaide and Sydney. It is important that, where possible, the Westfield FFA Cup Final is played in different locations around Australia to showcase the truly national nature of the competition. FFA is hoping to break the Westfield FFA Cup Final attendance record by beating last year’s number achieved in Melbourne.”
