Three Sky Blues Selected For Olyroos

Three of Sydney FC's A-League Champions have been selected in a 26-player squad that will participate in Australia’s U-23 men’s national football team's clash against the Sky Blues this Thursday night.

Tom Heward-Belle, Luke Ivanovic and Joel King will all face off against their parent club, donning the Green and Gold of their nation as opposed to their traditional Sydney FC kits at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium.

All three players were regular members of the Sky Blues' squad that claimed a record-breaking Premiership and Championship double in Season 2019/20, and will use this clash to accrue valuable match minutes ahead of Sydney FC's trip to Qatar to complete their 2020 AFC Champions League campaign. 

The players in the Olyroos squad with AFC Champions League commitments with their clubs in Doha, Qatar (Sydney FC and Perth Glory FC) will depart the assembly following the first match of the camp later this week.

A limited number of tickets (due to COVID-19 protocols) will be available for the first fixture between Australia U-23 and Sydney FC, with tickets on sale now via Ticketek.

All patrons are reminded to follow the latest health advice and observe COVID-safe protocols, including staying home if unwell.
