Football's Big 'Blue' Week Has Arrived
26 May 2015
Sydney is gearing up for a very big week of football, with three massive football games taking place at Sydney Olympic Park, each featuring a home grown ‘blue’ team holding Sydney’s hopes high.

Football has big days, the Bledisloe Cup, Grand Finals, the Socceroo’s World Cup qualifying games, all at ANZ Stadium, but seldom do so many great games happen so close together, with over 200,000 people attending these three games, making this week something very special.
