Sydney FC set for training camp on the Gold Coast

Sydney FC will ramp up preparations for the Hyundai A-League 2018/19 Season and their FFA Cup Round of 16 clash with a six-day training camp on the Gold Coast this month.

It's the third year in a row the Sky Blues will head north for their pre-season, with new boss Steve Corica aiming to get his side in peak condition ahead of the new season.

The squad will depart Sydney on August 10, with a behind-closed-doors friendly against Brisbane Roar also set down during their stay on the Goold Coast.

That match will be played at CBus Super Stadium.

With six training sessions planned, plus the clash against the Roar scheduled, the players will work on all aspects of their game in a high-intensity environment.

“These camps are always a very important part of our preseason and always prove beneficial for the season ahead,” Corica said.

“This is the perfect opportunity to get the squad away into a team environment and really gel and form the relationships needed to be the successful team Sydney FC is.

“I’m looking forward to taking charge of my first camp after attending the previous two as assistant, and I’m very grateful to Gold Coast City Council for supporting this training camp and securing a quality venue in CBus Super Stadium for our game.”

Sydney FC begin their Hyundai A-League 2018/19 Season away against Adelaide United at Coopers Stadium on Friday, October 19.

The Sky Blues will also learn their Round of 16 FFA Cup opponent following the final Round of 32 clashes on Tuesday night.

The FFA Cup Round of 16 matches are set down for two match days between August 21 and 29.
