Liberty A-League Champions Sydney FC has smashed its Target 1000 Membership campaign reaching a massive 1,369 Memberships with six weeks still to go until the first game of the season.
The ‘Double Winners’ have experienced a 400%+ increase on last season’s number and expect a bumper crowd at Allianz Stadium for the season opener against Western Sydney Wanderers on Saturday 14th October.
The Sky Blues have harnessed the power of the women’s football movement and are encouraging fans to ‘Don’t Stop Now’ and continue their football journey following the success of the FIFA Women’s World CupTM.
Some of the country’s best female footballers will play in the Liberty A-League this season and it’s a golden opportunity for fans to see them week in, week out.
Sydney FC Chief Executive Officer Adam Santo says the growth doesn’t end having reached the target.
“To smash our target six weeks out is a fantastic achievement from our team,” he said.
“Women’s football is booming and I’d say to anyone who enjoyed the World Cup fever ‘don’t stop supporting it now’.
“I’d encourage you to sign up today because it is going to be an unforgettable season.
“This is a once in a generation opportunity for fans to show their support for our female footballers and I’ve no doubt the momentum will carry forward.”
Purchasers have come from far and wide including California in the USA, Norway and Hong Kong.
Sydney FC Captain Natalie Tobin is delighted by the support the squad has received.
“It is amazing to see the amount of people who have signed up for a Membership to support us and we’d love to get as many Members as we can,” she said.
“I’m delighted to see the likes of Cortnee [Vine] and fellow Matilda Tameka Yallop sign up to play in the Liberty A-League this season.
“Every player in The Matildas World Cup squad played in the competition at some point and I’ve no doubt fans will see the next generation Matildas stars coming through this season.
“Thank you to everyone who has signed up already, and to everyone else don’t stop now.”
Sydney FC are looking to become the first team in Liberty A-League history to achieve a back to back double by defending both their Premiership and Championship titles.
