From next week Football fans will have the opportunity to obtain tickets to see the Socceroos- final match of the year, with China set to visit Sydney in October.
The world-s most populous nation will take on Australia at the Sydney Football Stadium on Saturday 13 October. The match will be the first visit to Australia since 1985 for the giant of Asian football and the 2004 AFC Asian Cup runner-up.
“This will be the last chance for Australian sports fans to see the Socceroos live in action this year and the final match prior to the start of Australia-s World Cup campaign early next year,” said Football Federation Australia Chief Executive Ben Buckley.
“With the “Road to South Africa” starting in February, and it being our first qualifying campaign through Asia, this match against such a strong Asian opponent will really be a sneak preview of our World Cup qualifying journey. It will also be the last chance for players to impress in the national colours before February, so there will be plenty at stake,” Buckley added.
“Recent matches at the Sydney Football Stadium have seen a superb atmosphere and this fixture promises to be a great occasion with Australia taking on the burgeoning giant of Asia.”
“There are a broad range of ticket pricing available and we expect demand to be strong through the Football Family and amongst Aussie sports fans.”
Tickets will go on sale via Ticketek to the Football Family on Tuesday (28 August) and to the General Public on Wednesday 5 September.
Australia played China earlier this year in March in Guangzhou and won 2-0 thanks to goals from Brett Holman and Mark Bresciano.
The match will be televised live and exclusive on FOX SPORTS.
Australia v China Saturday 13 October, 8pm kick-off Sydney Football Stadium
