Sydney FC Finalise Pre-Season Fixtures

Sydney FC has confirmed the details for two more landmark pre-season fixtures to be played in Canberra and Tasmania in September.

The Sky Blues will resume their rivalry with Melbourne Victory as the two Hyundai A-League heavyweights lock horns in Australia’s most southern state.

The sides will meet at North Hobart Stadium which will host Hyundai A-League opposition for the first ever time on September 28 in a 3pm kick off.

“It is great to be bringing an A-League match into the heart of our capital city and we are really spoiled to be hosting one of the national competition’s fiercest rivalries,” said Football Federation Tasmania CEO Mike Palmer.

Sydney FC will also visit the nation’s capital to take on Canberra FC at Deakin Stadium (kick off 7pm) on September 10, in what will be the first time the two sides have met.

The two clubs will look to follow in the footsteps of their female counterparts, who have come face to face in the Westfield W-League since its inception with the Canberra Women and the Sky Blues finishing first and second last season.

Sydney FC Head Coach Graham Arnold said the two final pre-season matches will be the prime opportunity to fine tune his tactical set up ahead of the Sky Blues season opener against Melbourne City on October 11 at Allianz Stadium.

“These two games will be our last chance to fine tune everything ahead of our first A-League fixture,” he said.

“The boys have performed admirably so far and this is a great opportunity to build on our confidence and hopefully deliver another two impressive performances.

“It’s going to be an excellent showcase of Hyundai A-League football and it’s good for Canberra and Hobart to see these games live when they would otherwise not get the chance.”

Ticketing details for the Canberra and Tasmania games will be announced shortly.
