Sydney-s richly diverse communities will come together for Sydney FC-s second Harmony in Football match on Saturday (March 16) as Sydney FC takes on Melbourne Victory in a high stakes Hyundai A-League game at Allianz Stadium.

The Harmony Game will be Sydney FC-s final home match of the regular season and crucial to the Sky Blues- finals fate following a stirring 2-0 win last week over Central Coast Mariners which now sees Sydney FC in fifth place with three games remaining before the finals.

Sydney FC will look to extend their winning streak at Allianz Stadium to seven games and are expecting a big crowd in excess of 20,000 for the grudge match with Melbourne Victory.

Sydney FC-s Brazilian defender Tiago Calvano said the Sydney FC players were looking forward to the Harmony in Football clash and the support from the Sky Blues fans. “We need the support from the fans,” he said.

“They are our 12th player because they always support us and are always behind us. We need their help and we play for them.”

“Sydney FC is thrilled to present our second Harmony game which has grown this year through the launch of Football Federation Australia-s Harmony through Football Program,” said Sydney FC CEO Tony Pignata.

“We also wish to acknowledge our grassroots partner Football United who do wonderful work engaging new migrant communities through football.”

Harmony Day is Australia-s annual celebration of Cultural Diversity and is celebrated on March 21 with this year-s theme being: “Many Stories - One Australia. We all make up the pages of a bigger Australia and we all have a story to tell.”

Sydney FC-s Harmony Day game will feature Harmony Day crowd giveaways, multicultural player mascots, small sided games featuring humanitarian refugee players, big screen messages and the launch of Football United-s new song “Field of Dreams”.

Before the game the Allianz Stadium precinct will come alive with colour and motion featuring Chinese Lion Dancers, Samba Band Rhythm Brazil, a performance by African Drumming troupe the Coffee Coloured Characters and a Football United sausage sizzle.

Sydney FC-s Harmony Game is part of Football Federation Australia-s Harmony through Football Program proudly supported by the Department of Regional Australia, Local Government, Arts and Sport, SBS, Department of Immigration and Citizenship, Football United and Red Elephant Projects.
