Football Federation Australia today announced that a training camp would replace the Powerade Series match that was scheduled between the Socceroos and Colombia in London during August. FFA CEO Mr John O'Neill said that discussions with the remaining candidates for the National Coach position had indicated that they would all prefer a training camp rather than a match against the South Americans. "The remaining candidates believe they will get much more value out of a training camp rather than a match," said Mr O'Neill. "Once we reach a conclusion on who the national coach will be we can then finalise the details for the camp which will likely take place in Europe." "I'd like to thank Fulham FC, the English FA, the Colombian FA, our partners and fans for their understanding and support." Australia's next set of matches will be FIFA World Cup 2006 qualifiers against the Solomon Islands on September 3 and 7. Aussie Stadium in Sydney will host the Australian leg with the order of matches to be announced shortly. The winner of that series will play for a spot in the World Cup finals against the fifth ranked COMNEBOL nation during November. The Socceroos will also play a Powerade Series match in October in London. Mr O'Neill also revealed the Socceroos may play another international during that month. "We could potentially play another match during October as there is a FIFA double-date available and we are currently scheduled to play on only one of those dates. This will be a decision we will make in consultation with the new national coach," added Mr O'Neill. To obtain a refund for the cancelled match against Colombia, supporters who purchased tickets from See Tickets or on the internet must return their tickets to:- See Tickets, The Hollows, St. James-s Street, Nottingham, NG1 6FG. Supporters who have purchased through the Fulham FC Shop or Ticket Office can return their tickets in person or by post to:- Fulham Football Club, The Ticket Office, Stevenage Road, Fulham, SW6 6HH.
