Four Key Points: Sydney FC Double Header

  • Doubleheader action

Doubleheader action returns to Netstrata Jubilee Stadium on Saturday with Sydney FC Women playing Canberra United at 5.05 pm which is followed by the Men’s match which will kick off at 7.45 pm. It will be the first doubleheader since Sydney FC faced the Wellington Phoenix on December 19, 2021, so make sure you get yourself down to Netstrata Jubilee Stadium on Saturday afternoon to catch two games of exciting football.

Don’t miss out on an action-packed afternoon. Tickets for the Doubleheader can be purchased here.

  • Plum kit

News dropped earlier this week that both teams will wear the Under Armour ‘Midnight Plum’ third kit. The kit has proven to be a popular hit with fans on social media so make sure you get down to the ground to see our players rock the new kit in person. You can purchase the ‘Midnight Plum’ kit here.

  • Chance to continue strong league form

Sydney FC has had some great results of late. Ante Juric’s girls sit on top of the Liberty A-League ladder undefeated and have only conceded one goal. They will be tested this week with the absence of Matildas duo Cortnee Vine and Remy Siemsen. They could be boosted by the return of captain Nat Tobin (foot injury) and midfielder Taylor Ray (Covid) who may find themselves in contention. Steve Corica’s side is coming off the back of a mid-week FFA Cup win against Brisbane Roar and will be determined to continue their league form. Corica’s side were last in action in the Izuzu Ute A-League when they defeated the Macarthur Bulls 3-0 on Boxing Day. James Donachie will be suspended for the match after picking up a red card in the 1-0 FFA Cup win during the week.

  • Amini to debut?

Saturday’s match against the Brisbane Roar could potentially see the debut of new Sydney FC signing Mustafa Amini. The Socceroos midfielder has officially joined the club and has been training with the team for a few days now. It’s still unclear whether or not Amini will feature against the Roar however he is now eligible to play with the transfer window officially opening for January.
