Sydney FC’s opening home match of the Liberty A-League season – a Grand Final replay against Melbourne Victory – will take place in front of a bumper crowd at Manly United’s Cromer Park on Saturday 26th November at 3pm.
The huge game pits reigning Premiers Sky Blues against the Champions in a repeat of the fixture where Ante Juric’s team secured the Premiers Plate in 2021.
Sydney’s Northern Beaches have regularly turned out in large numbers to support the Sky Blues Women’s squad and another good turn out is expected at Cromer Park for the first match of the season.
Head Coach Ante Juric said: “We’ve always been extremely well supported when we play in Manly and I expect this will be no different for the home season opener.
“It’s a massive match and one in which we are determined to put on a show for the big crowd.
“There are a huge number of families in the area and a great interest in football so it will be nice to see a sell out for the game.”
Tickets for all Sydney FC’s Liberty A-League home games will go on sale next week.
