Saturday’s massive Sydney Derby clash has sold out at Allianz Stadium for the fifth consecutive time today.
Another crowd in excess of 40,000 is expected to file through the gates at Allianz Stadium, with the match potentially crucial in the race for the Hyundai A-League Finals Series.
Nine matches remain in the season with only six points splitting the sides.
Sydney FC Chief Executive Officer Tony Pignata expressed his delight at the achievement of another sellout crowd and said he’s looking forward to Saturday’s pivotal match.
“It’s fantastic to see Saturday’s match sell out again,” he said.
“It’s testament to the popularity of the contest and the passion shared between both sets of fans that we’re able to set this record.
“People have obviously enjoyed the experience in the past and want to keep coming back for more.
“I hope Saturday will be another great occasion for football in this country and I can’t wait for kick off.”
With available ticket allocations now exhausted, the only way for fans to still experience the Sydney Derby at Allianz Stadium is to purchase a Sydney FC Finals Run Pack, available in limited numbers online.
Starting at $100 for an Adult Silver pack, the Finals Run Pack provides entry for the final four home matches at Allianz Stadium as the Sky Blues chase another Hyundai A-League Finals Series appearance.
“For those wanting to still experience the fervour and festivity that is a Sydney Derby, you can purchase a Sydney FC Finals Run Pack to receive admittance,” Pignata said.
