Sky Blues won’t let homelessness hold them back

-

Sydney FC will continue their nomadic lifestyle for the next three seasons of the A-League, but their patience will pay off with a brand new state of the art stadium.  

The Sky Blues welcomed the demolition of Allianz Stadium this week despite previous fears of limited government funding. The three-year demolition and reconstruction of Allianz would see the stadium transformed into a world-class sporting arena, boasting a number of improvements including a fully covered roof, upgraded amenities, accessibility, and food and beverage options – as well as seating up to 45,000 spectators.

The $750 million renovation will provide Sydney FC with a brand new stadium which is expected to be complete by early 2022.

“We are extremely pleased with the speed at which the government is executing on its plans for the new state of the art stadium in Moore Park,” said Sydney chairman Scott Barlow.

“Today’s signing is a huge step forward in ensuring our club won’t be displaced for any longer than necessary.

“It gives us confidence that the project will be completed in the original time frame and our many thousands of fans will be entering a new world class facility sooner rather than later.”

Whilst the stadium is being updated, the Sky Blues home games will be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground, Jubilee Stadium and Leichhardt Oval.

Although the promise of a brand new stadium is good, Milos Ninkovic admitted that adjusting to a number of different home grounds hasn’t been without its inconveniences.

“It’s not easy, but we are football players and sometimes you don’t have a choice,” he said.

“We’re happy to play at Jubilee Stadium… our last game against Melbourne was an unbelievable atmosphere and a good crowd.”

Ninkovic hopes future games in their varied home grounds will be much of the same; good crowds, good pitches and good atmospheres.

The Sky Blues might be nomadic for now, but being undefeated in five of their six A-League matches this season means homelessness hasn’t hindered them too much so far.

And a world class stadium as a reward for their patience is a light at the end of the tunnel.
