Sydney FC can confirm that the Sky Blues held talks overnight with Italian legend Alessandro Del Piero with a view to bringing him to Sydney for the 2012/13 Hyundai A-League.

“Overnight we had two video conferences lasting about two hours discussing the possibility of bringing Alessandro Del Piero to Sydney FC for the 2012/13 season,” said Sydney FC Chief Executive Officer Tony Pignata.

“Alessandro Del Piero is one of the true legends of football and there is no doubt that if he was to come to Sydney FC it would be huge, not only for our club and the Sydney football community, but for the whole A-League.

“We spoke about football, as well as the Sydney lifestyle and the ability for him to leave a lasting legacy in the game. We presented him with what we think is a good package and we should get an answer within 48 hours.”

Sydney FC takes on fellow Hyundai A-League side Adelaide United in a pre season friendly at Marconi Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Kick off is at 5pm.

2012/13 Sydney FC Memberships are now on sale with Public Transport to and from the game from all over Sydney covered in the Membership price.
