Inaugural Sydney FC Cup postponed

The boys component of the inaugural Sydney FC Cup has been postponed due to wet weather, but Football Wagga is holding out hope the girl’s competition will not suffer a similar delay.

The boy’s section of the primary school-based competition was set to kick-off on Tuesday, with girls scheduled for Wednesday.

The competition sees 12 teams (nine in the girl’s) battle it out across a full day of action, with the final two teams to play their grand final on August 30, in conjunction with the Creed Shield and Sally Shipard Shield deciders.

South Wagga are expected to be a strong contender in both the boy’s and girl’s competitions, while Lake Albert and Mater Dei will also make a strong push in the boy’s.

The competition was designed to give primary school players a large competition to compete in while bringing together public and private schools.

Winners will receive a “match-day experience” package from Sydney FC.
