There's this "other event" on the day which is going to wipe literally thousands out from attending... ya know... Valentines Day. I wonder if the club even realised.
And we should really be playing these games somewhere smaller, like Kogarah. We'd probably get exactly the same crowd.
Kogarah is a tidy little ground i can't see why it wouldn't meet AFC regulations if SFC fenced off the grassed areas.
Posted by: Drughi version2.0 i tried to break into the pizza hut, so i could make myself a kebab.
It's understood the AFC and its representatives have previously requested logos of the nearby NRL headquarters be covered for sanctioned games, as well as signage related to the Waratahs offices next to the stadium. Those requests were later retracted.
So it turns out, after being asked to change to a white/blue kit to avoid a kit clash in the group stage, Suwon have only brought their white away kit despite being told to bring their navy home kit to avoid a clash with us. Therefore it seems quite likely that we will have to play in navy tomorrow
Sydney FC could be forced to wear an away jersey at home for the first time when they play Suwon Bluewings on Wednesday night.
A kit bungle for the opening game of their Asian Champions League campaign may force the Sky Blues to wear navy blue at Allianz Stadium after Suwon brought the wrong jerseys to Australia.
The Asian Football Confederation's strict uniform requirements mean Sydney FC can't have a sky blue home jersey and a navy blue away jersey for the tournament, forcing them to adopt a predominantly white home strip for continental matches. The Korean club were instructed to wear their royal blue home strip for Wednesday's fixture, but it's understood they only brought their white away kit.
The K-League giants immediately ordered their home kit to be sent from Korea on Tuesday, but can't guarantee it will arrive in time for Wednesday night's match.
Sydney FC's support staff spent Tuesday afternoon rushing to have ACL-approved jerseys printed with names and numbers ironed and ready for use.
Sydney FC were denied their preferred home strip by the Asian Football Confederations' strict uniform requirements and opted for a predominantly white home jersey with sky blue shorts and socks.
Get ready for the "Sydney have no fans" posts for Wednesday..
PAX @ 5 minutes ago: 4888.
Not sure if this includes member tickets or general public.
That's odd, I purchased a ticket at 7.18pm and the PAX was 4482.
You posted at 6.51pm and said you bought a ticket 5 minutes ago, but you have a higher PAX number..
BTW no A-League club can have a go at anyone's ACL crowds, least of all Western Suburbs fans.
