Sydney FC launched its 2011/12 Hyundai A-League Membership drive and unveiled its new adidas playing strip amid a sea of fans and noise in Martin Place today.

The two-time Hyundai A-League Champions proudly showed off the new strip, which sees the traditional home strip altered only slightly and a new predominantly Black away strip in front of 50 members of The Cove and a curious lunchtime Martin Place crowd.

Six players, including Captain Terry McFlynn and marquee midfielder Nick Carle, were on hand to model the new strips, while also asking fans to become Members for the 2011/12 season to get behind the Club.

“The whole playing group are excited about the season ahead and we-re hoping that the people of Sydney get behind us and become Members for the upcoming season,” said Captain Terry McFlynn. “We-re working hard in Pre Season training at the moment to make sure we give our fans what they deserve on the pitch - and that-s success.

“It-s also nice to see the new strip that we will be playing in. adidas is one of the best football brands in the world and they have put designed a strip that we will proudly wear every week.”

The home strip is the traditional Sky Blue with a Navy pin-stripe, the away strip is Black with a Sky Blue pin-stripe while the goalkeepers will take to the field in grey or fluorescent yellow or green. The home strip also has a collar - a traditional football feature.

The strips will go on sale on 1 September and can be purchased by logging onto www.sydneyfc.com
