Mini Asian Cup

Centennial Parklands will be hosting an ‘international’ football tournament this weekend – the Sydney FC Mini Asian Cup!

The cream of Sydney’s Asian football talent will be on display as 12 ‘national’ teams do battle on Robertson Road Fields, Moore Park on Saturday 19 April 2014. If you’d like to come down and support the teams, entry is free, with games starting from 8.30am.

Teams representing 12 Asian Football Confederation countries will contest a 7-a-side tournament, featuring shortened 30 minute games. The ‘Australian’ team will be represented by locally-based Maroubra United players.

Tony Pignata, CEO of Sydney FC said: “Sydney FC has a diverse fan base and we are thrilled to bring the Sydney Asian communities together for this inaugural event.”

The event objective is to celebrate the diversity of Sydney’s Asian communities and build awareness of the AFC Asian Cup 2015 which will launch in Melbourne on 9 January 2015 and culminate in the final at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on 31 January 2015.
