Ferdinand Family Fun Before Sky Blues Showdown


Incumbent Hyundai A-League Champions Sydney FC are setting up for a Family Fun afternoon out ahead of their showdown against the Brisbane Roar at Allianz Stadium.

The clash between the two teams will undoubtedly be a fiery and passionate affair on the pitch, and fans will also be able to enjoy a memorable and unique experience off the field as well.

Thanks to Sydney FC’s partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, the club will screen the family movie “Ferdinand” on both big screens at Allianz Stadium prior to Hyundai A-League kick-off (7:50pm), providing a fantastic two-for-one offer for all Members and casual ticket holders for the match.

Gates for the match on Saturday 17th March will open at 5pm, with the screening beginning at 5:10pm on the north and south super screens.


“Ferdinand portrays universal values that are applicable in all walks of life and the club as a whole is delighted with this opportunity to engage and excite our junior and young family supporter base,” said Chief Executive Officer Danny Townsend.

Additionally, for those that arrive early for the movie 1,000 free Ferdinand face masks will be handed out on entry, giving you the opportunity to win throughout the afternoon and thanks to the Sydney Cricket Ground Trust and Delaware North the first 500 children to visit the food and beverage outlet outside Gate C will receive a free small popcorn and slushie to enjoy the movie, plus $10 combo deals will be available all game.

Townsend was excited about the value proposition to a young family this upcoming game would bring, “We know we haven’t had the ability to host too many family friendly kick-offs this year and we think this opportunity provides a great chance to do that plus provide exceptional value for the family – a family ticket to watch the best team in the league, a family ticket to watch a movie, free food and beverages on offer and free public transport to the game is exceptional value”.

Kristen McGrath Associate Director of Publicity from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment added “we are delighted to be working with Sydney FC again on the Home Entertainment release of Ferdinand. The partnership has given us a unique opportunity to engage with families and kids and share this adorable and very heart-warming family animated movie.”

Family tickets are available from just $68* at ticketek.com.au/sydneyfc for families of four, and all tickets include free public transport to and from the venue on the day.
