Sydney FC To Lift Plate At Leichhardt Oval

Hyundai A-League 2019-20 season Premiers Sydney FC will be presented with the Premiers Plate next Saturday evening at Leichhardt Oval, after their final home game against Western United (kick off 5pm). 

It’s the third time in four years the Sky Blues have achieved the feat, and Sydney FC Members will get the chance to witness the presentation at the ground where this season’s home campaign began.

The match is one of two venue changes for the Sky Blues next week and has been switched to the inner west venue from BankWest Stadium, to allow the club to lift the Plate at the more intimate setting of one of their three home grounds.

Members will receive details on how they can apply to attend the match via email this Monday.

Sydney FC Head Coach Steve Corica says it’s the right decision and is looking forward to sharing the moment with club Members.

“Our Members are the reason we’ve been playing to win all season, so it is only right that we give them the opportunity to see us lift the Plate at one of our familiar home grounds.

“Leichhardt Oval served us very well earlier this season and we enjoy the special feel of playing there.

“We are looking forward to completing our campaign in style and using it as a springboard for the Finals Series.”

Sydney FC’s penultimate match of the season against Brisbane Roar which takes place on Monday (10th August) has also been moved and will now be hosted behind closed doors at MacDonald Jones Stadium (kick off 7.30pm).

The game was originally set to be held at ANZ Stadium, however Brisbane Roar requested to move the match, which is their ‘home’ game, having relocated to the Hunter region in the past week.
