FFA has condemned the actions of a small number of troublemakers attending the Sydney derby on Saturday night.
Football Federation Australia (FFA) today condemned the actions of a small number of troublemakers attending the Western Sydney Wanderers v Sydney FC Hyundai A-League match on Saturday night.
"FFA thanks the vast majority of fans of the Wanderers and Sydney FC for making the Hyundai A-League's third Sydney derby a spectacular night for Australian sport,” Head of A-League Damien de Bohun said.
"The sold-out crowd of nearly 20,000 provided a huge amount of colour, noise and theatre, and the overall behaviour was exceptionally good.
"Those fans who disturbed the enjoyment of fellow fans with anti-social behaviour have no place in the game. There are currently 17 people in NSW serving bans from attending matches under FFA-s control because of acts of anti-social behaviour.
"FFA will continue to work closely with NSW Police, Stadium security and our security consultants to identity and exclude troublemakers."
