When Sydney FC runs out on field at the SFS this Sunday against the Wellington Phoenix the club will have another prominent Australian sporting identity firmly in its corner, with well-known journalist and author, Liz Deep-Jones officially joining the team today as a Sydney FC ambassador.

Liz Deep-Jones came to prominence as a journalist and presenter on the respected SBS program, Toyota World Sports and has a strong association with football in this country, developed during a media career that has spanned over two decades. During her career Liz has covered major international events such as the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France and the Sydney Olympics in 2000, and last year she took up duties as a sideline commentator during the ABC-s coverage of the Westfield W-League.

The Unicef Australia ambassador is a self-proclaimed football tragic and is excited to link up officially with the Sydney Football Club.

“I-m very passionate about football and excited by what I-ve seen from Sydney FC this season, on and off the field,” she explained. “Sydney is my home and Sydney FC is my club so I-m very happy to have this opportunity to become an official ambassador.”

“Liz is another great addition to the team,” added Sydney FC CEO, Stefan Kamasz. “Her commitment to the growth of football in this country is outstanding and she will be an asset to our club.”

After becoming Sydney FC-s latest ambassador Liz will be a guest at this weekend-s Hyundai A-League clash between the Sky Blues and the Wellington Phoenix at the Sydney Football Stadium, where she-ll have the added bonus of watching her husband-s club, the Dunbar Rovers compete in the curtain raiser when they take on the Waverley Old Boys in the Eastern Suburbs Football Association Premier League Grand Final.
