Sydney take A-League match to Brookvale


Brookvale Oval will host an A-League match for the first time after Sydney FC moved their round 22 clash with Melbourne City to the suburban ground.

The Sky Blues were scheduled to host City at the SCG on Saturday March 16 but pushed the game out a day because they arrive back from their Asian Champions League clash against Kawasaki Frontale on the Friday morning.

"It's an exact scenario we couldn't have predicted and after working with the SCG, the FFA, Manly Warringah Football Association and the Northern Beaches Council, I'm delighted we can be represented in another one of our key regions," Sydney FC chief executive Danny Townsend said on Friday.

"It is fantastic that we’ve been able to host our matches in Sydney’s south, the inner west, the SCG, and now we have the chance to reward our loyal Members in the north.

"We’ve learned from the success of our gameday experiences at Jubilee Stadium this season and listened to what our Members and supporters want.

"We are committed to being as flexible as we can be during this time of displacement and I think we will be able to provide another fantastic match day event at Brookvale Oval."
