Having recently competed in the FUT Championships in Sydney and Canada in February and April respectively, Brijeski said he’s excited to be joining the Sky Blues on their foray into e-Sports.

“Obviously everyone knows Sydney FC as the biggest club in the [Hyundai] A-League and now I want to make them the biggest in e-Sports,” Brijeski said.

“I’m really excited to be named as the inaugural competitor for the club and I can’t wait to get started on this journey.

“Like any member of Sydney FC my aim is to win trophies and I believe I can achieve that here.”

Sydney FC will appoint an Xbox E-League competitor in the following days following a league draft. 

The E-League kicks off on February 1, 2018 and will run for the last nine rounds of the Hyundai A-League season with each club facing each other once before a tournament-style Finals Series is held.
