Following a seven year stint in UK club football, new Sydney FC Chief Commercial Officer Ken Sharp has outlined his ambitions to help turn the Sky Blues into the most successful club of any code in the country.

Sharp signed on with Sydney last week, and believes it won-t be long before the Sydney is playing before home crowds in excess of forty thousand.

"We should be filling this stadium," FC's latest recruit said of the SFS. "It's going to take two to three years to do that, but I have no doubt we should be able to."

After successful stints with a number of high profile English teams, most recently Derby County and Coventry, Sharp is enthusiastic about the challenge of growing his new club-s brand.

"I am very excited to be here," he said. "It's a terrific atmosphere, there-s a definite high energy and a lot of ambition here. What better position is there to be in, with what will undoubtedly be the biggest brand in club football (in Australia), Sydney FC."

Whilst Sharp-s main aims are to strengthen relations with the Harbour City-s various football associations and add to FC-s financial partnerships, he is also confident that it won't be long before we see many UK clubs taking a greater interest in the game down-under.

"There is a lot of appeal about Australia, with a lot of the clubs saying that we must do a friendly and that they would to bring the team down here," he said. "With some of the links that have now been created, hopefully we can bring that to pass."

Whilst Sharp and his team get down to work in the office, the Sydney FC team is doing the same on the training field.

After a well earned weekend off the squad is gearing up for its next game, away to reigning Hyundai A-League champions, the Newcastle Jets, this Saturday in the steel city.
