One of the school-s forging forward with the Sky Blues is Cranbrook School after a memorandum of understanding was struck between Sydney FC and Cranbrook in March this year.

The purpose of the relationship is to work closely with partner schools, their football coaches and football playing students to further develop football within their school.

The agreement has many benefits for Cranbrook-s football community as they will have access to the many programs put forward by the club.

Some of these programs include, Sydney FC players making visits to the school or teams training, training sessions conducted by football development officers from Sydney FC, match day experiences as well as ticketing offers, and the opportunity to visit the Macquarie Uni training complex to watch Vitezslav Lavicka put the team through their paces while getting a real behind the scenes look at the club.

Sydney FC-s Head of Football Stefan Kamasz hopes the agreement is the beginning of a long lasting relationship between the two organisations.

“We are delighted to have signed this agreement with Cranbrook School and we look forward to working with them for many years to come,” Kamasz said.
