Watch Wellington Phoenix play Sydney FC at Campbelltown Sports Staidum on 23 February 2019.
Campbelltown Sports Stadium has been announced as the venue for a match between A-League teams Wellington Phoenix and Sydney FC on 23 February 2019.
This announcement comes on the back of the news that the stadium will be the home of a Macarthur South West Sydney United A-League team commencing in 2020.
The premier sports facility has been chosen as the preferred location for the match that will attract fans across the Greater Sydney region and New Zealand.
This will be the return of both teams to the area, with Sydney FC having played an A-League match at the stadium in 2012 while Wellington played FFA matches against the Western Sydney Wanderers at the venue in 2016 and 2017.
“We are thrilled to welcome back the Wellington Phoenix and Sydney FC to compete at our stadium,” Mayor George Brticevic said.
“Wellington Phoenix choosing our stadium as its preferred ground for this match is proof that our venue has what it takes to be the permanent home for an A-League team. We look forward to hosting the match and promoting the A-League across the region in preparation for Campbelltown Sports Stadium to be a permanent A-League venue in 2020,” Cr Brticevic said.
“The level of support and the strong football fan base that is evident in our city is one of the key reasons the venue was selected for this match.”
Pre-sale club member tickets for the match will go on sale on Thursday 20 December with general public tickets on sale on Friday 21 December.
Tickets start from $7.50 for kids and $15.00 for adults. Tickets will be available from www.ticketmaster.com.au
