A Sydney FC team led by CEO Tony Pignata will compete in the Finals of the Big Issue Street Football Festival Corporate Cup at Darling Harbour this evening.

The side, a joint collaboration with Sydney FC-s back of shirt sponsor Destination NSW, played in the heats of the competition earlier this week.

“It was good fun, anything for a good cause and a bit of a run, and it was enjoyable,” said the Sydney FC CEO.

“I got seven [goals] so you can forget about Alessandro Del Piero, but I-ll also be going to the physio tomorrow to get some ice,” he joked.

Jessica Martin, Cove Member and Social Media Manager for Destination NSW set up the team and was delighted with how things went.

“Destination NSW are sponsors so we get to enter the Corporate Cup, and it seemed right that we fit with Sydney FC to put the team together,” she said.

The side, under the banner of Destination NSW, will play in a semi-final kicking off at 5.30pm and potentially a final on the floating pitch at Darling Harbour.

Results and fixtures for The Big Issue Street Football tournament can be found at the competition website.
