Sydney FC Moves To Larger Stadium For Its Second Home Game Of The Season

A-League club Sydney FC and its marquee recruit Alessandro Del Piero "have moved their second home match" of the season from the 45,000-seat Sydney Football Stadium to the 83,500-capacity former Olympic stadium, according to the AP. Team officials said Thursday that "turf replacement at the downtown stadium forced the switch" to the ANZ Stadium in western Sydney. With an expected "large crowd" at its regular stadium against Newcastle in Sydney FC's home opener on Oct. 13, the extra seats for the match against the Perth Glory on Oct. 28 will give more fans an opportunity to see the former Juventus and World Cup-winning Italy forward (AP, 9/13).
