Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory will battle it for the Beyond Blue Cup next Saturday night when the trophy is once again up for grabs in the annual clash at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium (7.45pm kick off), and you can win a fantastic money can’t buy experience to be there!
The Sky Blues are the current holders following a 1-0 win last May when Bobô scored the only goal of the game.
It’s the 11th consecutive season the Cup has been played for with the partnership with the mental health organisation beginning in 2011.
This game is set to be a huge event with it being the last match of the regular season and $10 tickets available and an expectation of a packed out venue.
Sydney FC Chief Executive Officer Danny Townsend said: “Our co-operation with Beyond Blue has been in place for many years now and we are delighted we’ve been able to support the great work they do for so long.
“The year we are helping to raise awareness by asking our Members and supporters to look, ask, listen and support friends and family when it comes to their mental health.
“I hope it will benefit a lot of people and bring attention to such an important issue.”
Beyond Blue Chief Community Officer Patrice O’Brien said: “Our ongoing community partnership with the Sky Blues is helping spread the word about how fans, players and the community can be there for each other.
“We can’t underestimate the importance of supporting one another through the tough times, and it is something we can all do.
“I want to thank Sydney Football Club for their continued support and commitment as we stand together to support the community.”
Sydney FC will be running an online social media competition over the next two weeks asking people to share how they LOOK, ASK, LISTEN or SUPPORT their friends and family’s mental health.
The winner will receive a money can’t buy experience at the game on May 7th with entries closing on May 4th.
As well as competing for the trophy, the game has huge implications for both clubs as the Finals Series approaches and both teams looking to secure spots in the Finals Series.
It will also mark Sydney FC’s final Isuzu Ute A-League Men’s match at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium as they farewell the ground after four seasons, and prepare to head back to a rebuilt Allianz Stadium at Moore Park in October.
