“We have two passionate and very vocal sets of supporters which makes it a great occasion, while the football and drama on the field is always fantastic too.
“Everyone is looking forward to Saturday night and watching an exciting and exhilarating game of football amongst a huge crowd.
“We want all supporters to support their team and enjoy the occasion amongst their fellow Sydneysiders in a safe and family friendly environment.”
With all remaining available tickets now gone Sydney FC Memberships are still on sale for anyone who wants to attend the game.
“The only way you will get to see the game now is to buy a Sydney FC Membership,” added Pignata.
