July 28, 2022
Sydney FC will open the season with a blockbuster homecoming opening round clash at Allianz Stadium against Big Blue rivals Melbourne Victory, and their new signing from Manchester United, Nani.
And there’s not long to wait until the highly-anticipated return of ex-Sky Blue Milos Ninkovic for an explosive Sydney Derby clash on Saturday 12 November.
Steve Corica’s men will face both Victory and the Wanderers twice at home during the Isuzu-UTE A-League 2022-23 campaign, with the first two match-ups coming before the World Cup break in mid-November.
Head Coach Steve Corica says the huge opening clashes have whetted the appetite for the season.
“The season opener against Victory will be the first chance for our Members to see our new stadium on a matchday, and the atmosphere will be electric,” he said.
“To follow that up with a Sydney Derby right before the World Cup means it’s going to be an incredible time for football fans.
“It’s an excellent draw with two home games against two of our biggest rivals, and the fixtures all well-spaced to give us every opportunity to perform.
“It’s a draw to excite all football fans and and Members will get the best seats in the stadium to watch the games from.”
In total Sydney FC have 13 home matches while 13 will be away from home.
