Sydney FC Secure Season Launch Keynote Speaker

Sydney FC have secured Sydney Cricket & Sports Ground Trust (SCGT), Australian Subscription Television and Radio Association (ASTRA) and Greater Western Sydney Giants Chairman Tony Shepherd as the keynote speaker at the club’s exclusive 2018/19 Season Launch at The Star, Sydney on Wednesday 17 October.

Shepherd will appear alongside the Sky Blues’ Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League squads on stage at The Star, Sydney as we officially commence proceedings for the 2018/19 season, with Fox Sports personality Adam Peacock as the day’s MC.

The Sydney businessman, former Transfield Chairman and former President of the Business Council of Australia, will address those in attendance and discuss at length the upgrade and renewal of sporting infrastructure in Sydney, including the rebuilding of Allianz Stadium among other topics, in what will be a fascinating insight into the future of Sydney FC and the future of infrastructure Australia wide.

Sydney FC Chief Executive Officer Danny Townsend thanked Shepherd for joining the Sky Blues’ Season Launch.

“I’m pleased to have Sydney Cricket & Sports Ground Trust Chairman Tony Shepherd join us at our Season Launch,” Townsend said.

“Tony will provide a great insight into Allianz Stadium’s rebuild and our outlook for the future and it will be a valuable discussion for everyone in attendance.

“I’d like to extend my thanks to Tony for joining us on this special day.”

SCG Trust Chairman Tony Shepherd said Sydney FC and its passionate supporters had redefined the live sport experience in our city.

“The SCG precinct has benefited tremendously from the arrival of Sydney FC to our city’s sporting scene.

“There is no better atmosphere than an Allianz Stadium full of Sydney FC fans cheering on their team.

“I can’t wait to see that atmosphere transferred to the SCG when the Sky Blues host the Wanderers there later this month in what will be the first football match at the venue since 1985.

“I also can’t wait to see the Sky Blues bring that passion back to a new Allianz Stadium when the redevelopment is complete in 2022.”

The Sky Blues’ Season Launch will see both the A-League and W-League playing squads and staff presented on stage, with Head Coaches Steve Corica, Ante Juric and both team Captains hosting Q&A sessions on stage too.
