The Sydney FC Hall of Fame seeks to recognise and enshrine players, coaches, administrators, fans and volunteers who have made an outstanding contribution to Sydney FC. The Sydney FC Board considers candidates on the basis of record, ability, integrity, sportsmanship and character. The number of games played, coached or years of service is a consideration only and does not determine eligibility. Players, coaches and administrators are eligible when they 1) retire OR 2) leave the club.
Steve Corica – Player & Coach
Steve Corica has been named as Mr Sydney FC and there is no reason to argue. Corica was in the inaugural Sydney FC team and has spent every season since at the Sky Blues moving from a playing role into a coaching role. He made 137 appearances for Sydney FC across six seasons and scored 31 goals. He has also been Head Coach for 174 matches, winning two A-League Championships and one Premiers Plate.
Dwight Yorke – Player
Dwight Yorke was Sydney FC’s inaugural marquee player playing 24 games for the Sky Blues and scoring eight goals. He joined Sydney FC from Birmingham City following stints at Manchester United and Blackburn Rovers. He played a key role in guiding Manchester United to the Premier League, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League treble and is currently the Manchester United Foundation Ambassador.
Mark Rudan – Player
Mark holds the honour of being Sydney FC’s first captain as he guided the Sky Blues to the inaugural Championship in 2005/06, scoring a crucial goal at home against Adelaide United to propel Sydney FC into the Grand Final. Rudan, affectionately known as “The Big Blue Man” to the Sydney FC faithful, made 61 appearances for the Sky Blues in all competition and scored six goals.
Clint Bolton – Player
Renowned for his goalkeeping heroics in the 2009/10 Hyundai A-League Grand Final, saving Marvin Angulo’s penalty, Clint Bolton joined the Sky Blues as one of the club’s inaugural players and went on to appear 109 times between the posts for Sydney FC. Bolton won the Sydney FC Player of the Year award in 2005/06.
Pierre Littbarski – Coach
World Cup winner Pierre Littbarski holds a special place in the annals of Sydney FC. Littbarski was responsible for bringing the first ever silverware to the Sky Blues in the 2005/06 season. In the 24 A-League games he managed for Sydney FC, he only lost five, as he also led the club in the 2005 FIFA Club World Championship. As a player he made over 70 appearances for West Germany, winning the World Cup in 1990 whilst also making over 270 appearances for FC Koln in the German Bundesliga.
Vitezslav Lavicka – Coach
Vitezslav Lavicka was Sydney FC’s Premiership and Championship winning Head Coach during the 2009/10 Hyundai A-League season. Lavicka spent three seasons with the Sky Blues between 2009 and 2012, overseeing 89 A-League matches, before returning to the Czech Republic where he currently manages Sparta Prague.
Terry McFlynn – Player
Terry McFlynn was a fan favourite at Sydney FC and made 212 appearances. McFlynn scored seven goals from his midfield position with the Sky Blues and was awarded the captaincy at the start of the 2010/11 season. Vowing that he wouldn’t play for any other A-League team, McFlynn retired in 2014 with his last competitive match coming in a 5-0 win over Melbourne Victory.
Alessandro Del Piero – Player
Widely regarded as one of the greatest players for his generation, Del Piero joined the Sky Blues as their International Marquee at the start of the 2012/13 Hyundai A-League season. The World Cup and UEFA Champions League winner, and holder of over 500 caps for Serie A side Juventus, Del Piero made 48 appearances for Sydney FC, scoring 24 goals and was honoured with the captaincy for the 2013/14 season. Capping a remarkable two years at Sydney FC, Del Piero was selected for the Foxtel A-League All Stars, making his final appearance in Australia at ANZ Stadium against his old club Juventus.
Alen Stajcic – Coach
Having coached Sydney FC’s Westfield W-League team from inception in 2008 until 2014, Stajcic has played a pivotal role in forging the reputation that Sydney FC’s Westfield W-League team currently command. A two-time Westfield W-League Championship winner, Stajcic has carried his domestic coaching pedigree to the international stage as he has gone on to manage the Australian Women’s National Team.
Alex Brosque – Player
There are not many more players synonymous with Sydney FC than Alex Brosque. Captaining Sydney FC through their most successful period in history, he has set the benchmark across the club and has led both on and off the field in everything Sydney FC does. Joining in his early twenties, he has amassed 265 appearances across all competitions for the club – winning three consecutive Player of the Year awards between 2007 and 2010 and firmly cementing his status as a Legend. His trophy haul is equally impressive, earning three A-League Championships, three A-League Premierships and one FFA Cup – breaking records along the way as Sydney FC swept all before them in 2016/17 and earning more accolades as a Sky Blue than anyone else. He will go down as one of the club’s greatest ever players.
Teresa Polias – Player
Teresa Polias becomes the first female to be honoured in the Sydney FC Hall of Fame. She is Sydney FC’s record appearance maker with 145 games in Sky Blue that include a W-League record 18 Finals appearances and seven Grand Finals. Polias won two Championships and two Premierships with Sydney FC and also played 11 times for the Matildas. Perhaps her crowning glory was leading an extremely young Sydney FC squad with an average age of 22 to their first Premiers Plate in 2021.
Alex Wilkinson – Player
Alex Wilkinson is one of Australian football’s most decorated players, having won twelve major trophies at home and abroad and making over 600 appearances for club and country over 21 years. He is the only player in A-League Men’s history to win five Premierships. He also holds the record for most appearances in A-League Grand Finals with seven and most A-League Finals Series matches with 30.
