Socceroos set for Sydney homecoming against Saudi Arabia

See the full Football Australia media release here

Australia’s quest to qualify for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ will continue in Australia next month, with the Socceroos finally and joyfully returning to home soil for an international fixture for the first time after two long years.

The Socceroos will take on Saudi Arabia at Western Sydney Stadium (CommBank Stadium) in Parramatta on Thursday, 11 November 2021, some 763 days after the team’s last match in front of home fans against Nepal in Canberra in October 2019.

75 per cent of Western Sydney Stadium in Parramatta will be on sale for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ qualifier (approx. 22,500 seats), which will kick off at 8:05pm local time and be broadcast exclusively live and free across the nation via Australia’s ‘Home of Football’, Network 10.

Football Australia Chief Executive Officer, James Johnson, said the Socceroos’ match against Saudi Arabia on home soil had been made possible following months of discussion between Football Australia and the NSW Government, in collaboration with the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).

“The Socceroos are an iconic Australian team and one that has always enjoyed a very close connection with the Australian public,” Johnson said. “Unfortunately, throughout the team’s pursuit of qualification for a fifth consecutive FIFA World Cup™, they have had to play eleven of their twelve matches abroad. Despite the challenges which this has presented, the Socceroos have performed exceptionally well.”

“The Socceroos have a great record when playing FIFA World Cup™ qualifiers on Australian soil and we’re delighted that the team will have the opportunity to return to Australia to continue their FIFA World Cup™ quest in front of Australian fans. It will also be a chance for the Australian public to witness some exciting new national team talent, including players like Ajdin Hrustic, Martin Boyle, and Harry Souttar who have been making great contributions to the squad throughout 2021.”

“We thank the NSW Government for working closely with us to bring the Socceroos home in line with their Reopening NSW roadmap,” he said.

Following Australia’s most recent FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ qualifier in Japan, Socceroos Head Coach Graham Arnold discussed the importance that home ground advantage, and home fans, can have in international football.

With 20,000 plus people set to converge on Western Sydney Stadium on November 11, Arnold said he’s sure that his squad will feed off the energy and encouragement that the Socceroos fans in the stands will bring.

“I believe that playing in front of home fans at a beautiful Stadium and on a great pitch will help us,” Arnold said. “Fans can provide energy to players and teams, and after having been away from Australia for so long, I expect that our players will harness and utilise the support that will be in Western Sydney Stadium on November 11.”

“We appreciate and recognise the role that many stakeholders, primarily the NSW Government, have played in ensuring that this match could be played in Australia, and now I urge the players, together with the fans, to enjoy the moment and feed off one another’s energy as together we strive to take another positive step towards qualification for Qatar.”

NSW Minister for Tourism, Stuart Ayres, said it was exciting to welcome the Socceroos back to Sydney for the upcoming World Cup qualification match.

“The NSW Government is focused on investing in world-class events to deliver on our goal of becoming the premier visitor economy of the Asia Pacific,” Mr Ayres said.

“After the difficult period we have had during Covid-19, welcoming back the Socceroos could not have come at a better time for football fans. I look forward to watching this blockbuster game on NSW soil.”

NSW Minister for Sport, Natalie Ward, said the game would follow the Matildas’ two match-series against Brazil, heralding the return of live international sport to Sydney.

“Sydney has always hosted the most important Socceroos games in Australia, so it’s only right the team will play their first home match in 763 days here,” Mrs Ward said. “I’m looking forward to fans coming out to cheer on the Socceroos at CommBank Stadium next month.”

An initial allocation of tickets for Australia’s FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ – AFC Asian Qualifiers – Road to Qatar (Final Round) match against Saudi Arabia will go on sale to Football Account holders via a pre-sale window, on Monday, 1 November 2021 at 10am AEDT, with further tickets released to the General Public from Wednesday, 3 November 2021 at 12pm AEDT.

Australia will play its second match of November’s FIFA window against China PR on Tuesday, 16 November 2021. The details of this match are yet to be finalised, however, this fixture will also be available live and free throughout Australia via Network 10.

Australia’s final home fixtures will be against Vietnam (Thursday, 27 January 2022) and Japan (Thursday, 24 March 2022). Host cities and venues for these final matches are still to be determined.

Commonwealth Bank Matildas to play first games at newly-named CommBank Stadium

See the full Football Australia release here

See the Official NSW Government release here

Football Australia today confirmed that the Commonwealth Bank Matildas will host Brazil in a two-match series on 23 and 26 October, to be held at the newly-named CommBank Stadium, in Western Sydney, New South Wales.

The Commonwealth Bank Matildas last played on home soil when they defeated Vietnam in a Women’s Olympic Football Tournament Play-Off match in March 2020, on the eve of COVID-19 impacting the world in a profound way.

Since that time, Football Australia has made it a key priority to bring the Socceroos and Commonwealth Bank Matildas home at the earliest opportunity.

This will also be the first time that the Commonwealth Bank Matildas will be playing in front of home crowds since their record-breaking Tokyo campaign, and since Football Australia announced a naming rights partnership with Commonwealth Bank and secured a new media rights partner in 10 ViacomCBS.

These matches have been made possible to be hosted in Australia by the NSW Government’s approval of Football Australia’s comprehensive Quarantine Management Plan based on global best practice. This plan is a first of its kind for any sporting code in Australia and opens the opportunity for other international sports and the broader entertainment industry to consider similar arrangements.

This is a symbolic announcement as Australia begins to grapple with a COVID normal roadmap internationally and as the Commonwealth Bank Matildas prepare for a busy international schedule ahead including the much-anticipated FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023 TM.

Behind the scenes Football Australia has worked tirelessly to develop an innovative Quarantine Management Plan to meet the requirements of Government, taking a leadership role in being a COVID-19 responsible sport and offering solutions that work within Government frameworks, protocols, and vaccination roadmaps.

This announcement also coincides with New South Wales being on target to reach a double vaccination rate of 70 per cent of all people aged 16 and over in advance of these fixtures, with crowd capacities to be determined by the Public Health Order in effect at the time of the matches.

Football Australia Chief Executive Officer James Johnson was delighted with this announcement which will see the Commonwealth Bank Matildas play on home soil for the first time in over 18 months.

“We have made it our priority to bring our national teams home for international football so this is a phenomenal outcome for Australian football and one which we have been working tirelessly towards behind the scenes with both the Federal and NSW Government for a considerable amount of time now and appreciate the efforts of the NSW Government in particular,” Johnson said.

“International football is unique in that players are only made available during an international window of nine (9) days. with many of our Commonwealth Bank Matildas and Socceroos based overseas, the 14-day compulsory quarantine period for international arrivals effectively rendered any international football in Australia impossible. This was the reason why the Socceroos had to play their designated AFC Asian Qualifier – Road to Qatar home match against China in Qatar and our next designated home match against Oman on 7 October, will also be played outside of Australia.

“Our team at Football Australia put together a submission based on global best practice, focused on ensuring the safety and wellbeing of players and staff, which has been accepted by the NSW Government and aligns nicely with its roadmap to opening up. The new arrangement, which is the first for any sport in Australia, allows International football to be played within the defined quarantine period, under strict guidelines.

“We are delighted that Australian football has paved the way for international sport to be played in Australia under this new arrangement. Whilst industry-leading, we also believe that this builds a solid platform for other industries, like major international events, and the broader entertainment industry, to return to Australia under similar circumstances.

“We are excited that the first matches will be the Commonwealth Bank Matildas against Brazil on 23 and 26 October to be held at CommBank Stadium and can’t wait to welcome fans back into Stadiums.”

Ticketing information, match details, venue capacities, and eligibility criteria to attend the confirmed matches will be released in the coming days on Football Australia’s digital platforms.

With the confirmation of theses matches, Football Australia is now in the process of confirming the proposed fixtures between the Commonwealth Bank Matildas and the current FIFA Women’s World Cup Champions, the United States Women’s National Team, in a two-match series earmarked for 27 November and 30 November, both of which are to be hosted in Australia subject to Government discussions and Public Health Orders.

In the meantime, the Socceroos will play their next scheduled AFC Asian Qualifier – Road to Qatar home match against Oman on 7 October outside of Australia, details of which will be announced shortly. Football Australia are in advanced discussions with the SW Government regarding the Socceroos hosting a designated home AFC Asian Qualifier – Road to Qatar match against Saudi Arabia on 11 November, in Sydney under a Quarantine Management Plan.

2020 Rugby Championship fixtures at Bankwest Stadium:

Round Two – Saturday 14 November

New Zealand v Argentina

South Africa v Australia

Round Five – Saturday 5 December

Argentina v New Zealand

Australia v South Africa


The 2020 Rugby Championship will be the first time the Springboks have played since their memorable Rugby World Cup win in Japan last year.

November’s historic tournament will also be the first time that Tier One Rugby nations will have ever featured in a Test match double-header.

SANZAAR CEO Andy Marinos said: “It has taken a lot of hard work to get to this point, but we are delighted that we can now confirm the match dates and venues for The Rugby Championship 2020. The Rugby Championship is one of the game’s show piece events and includes some of the best rugby talent in the world.

“While the rescheduling and reconfiguration of the Super Rugby season has not been ideal all the member unions have been committed in getting rugby back on the field and the culmination of this will be the TRC in Australia. I would like to thank all of our Unions and their staff for their dedication and hard work since the onset of this pandemic. Our Broadcasters and Commercial partners have been fantastic in working with us and continually adapting in what has been a very dynamic environment.

“SANZAAR would like to thank Rugby Australia as host nation and Destination NSW and Tourism Australia for their commitment and involvement with venues and tournament logistics and assisting Rugby Australia in delivering this event.

“It is fantastic to be able to take matches to three cities – Brisbane, Newcastle and Sydney. The six double-header Saturdays are a first for the tournament and will produce an exciting feast of rugby for spectators at the venues who will actually be getting two world class international tests for the price of one entry ticket. Thanks to our committed family of broadcasters this action will also be delivered to the living rooms of our overseas rugby fans providing a rugby feast similar to what we experienced a year ago with the Rugby World Cup,” Marinos said.

Rugby Australia Interim Chief Executive Rob Clarke said: “What a fantastic tournament ahead for fans in Australia. Six unmissable back-to-back doubleheaders featuring four of the very best Test nations in World Rugby – all in our backyard.

“This really is a once in a lifetime event and I want to thank our terrific Government partners, in Destination New South Wales, as well as Gladys Berejiklian and her New South Wales Government in making this tournament possible.

“I also want to acknowledge Tourism Australia and Tourism Events Queensland for their support, as we showcase the very best of Australia to the rest of the world over the coming months,” Clarke said.

NSW Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said: “Sydney has once again reaffirmed its title as the nation’s sporting capital. With world-class sporting facilities and incredible food, wine, and natural beauty, NSW has so much to offer visitors and viewers from around the globe.

“The Rugby Championship is the jewel in the crown of Southern Hemisphere Rugby. Hosting the majority of the games in NSW, including the highly coveted Bledisloe Cup, demonstrates our Government’s commitment to growing events across the state as a crucial means to rebuilding the NSW visitor economy,’ Mr Ayres said.

“The hard work of our government agencies, including Destination NSW and the Office of Sport, continues to see our state go from strength to strength as we navigate our way through what have been some turbulent times for our tourism and event industries.

“I have no doubt that NSW sports fans will show up in droves for this incredible series and we look forward to welcoming fans from intrastate and hopefully interstate, for what is set to be an action packed summer of sport across the NSW,” Mr Ayres said.

Inbound teams Argentina, New Zealand and South Africa will be required to observe all health regulations around their squads as imposed by the NSW and Queensland governments. The teams will be kept separate by operating within a ‘bubble’ during this period with all teams operating in clean environments controlled by NSW police.  The wellness of the squads will be continually monitored in line with NSW Heath requirements.

Bankwest Stadium will continue to work with SANZAAR, Rugby Australia and NSW Health on ensuring all COVIDSafe protocols are implemented and enforced.

Bankwest Stadium to host The Wednesday League decider on 23 September

Bankwest Stadium will play host to one of the most unique community sporting events in the country with confirmation that the deciding fixture of The Wednesday League’s opening season will be played at the Stadium on Wednesday 23 September.

The Wednesday League, supported by Bankwest, is a first-of-its-kind grassroots football league created by, produced by, and starring Year 12 students from Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

The league is competed between two Year 12 teams – The Forest Originals, Year 12’s most avid soccer fans, and the Northern Sydney Select, a “best of the rest” team that includes students with a passion for football but whose main hobbies may have resided elsewhere.

The competition has gained support from some of Australia’s most prominent football voices and is unique in that it is filmed and broadcast with commentary to its YouTube channel and official sports streaming service partner SportsFlick.

“I use no added superlatives when I say this is a dream come true,” said Founder of The Wednesday League, Jude Dolan.

“Playing at the Stadium is an aim I’ve had since founding the League and to be able to decide the season there in such a style is going to be a day myself and the crew will never forget.”

Match commentary will be provided by one of Australia’s most iconic football voices – Simon Hill.

Bankwest Stadium has established itself as a safe-haven for sport during COVID-19 pandemic and will work with The Wednesday League and NSW Health to ensure all COVIDSafe protocols are followed.

With both teams level on points and wins after Game One at The Forest High School and Game Two at Cromer Park, the final day will consist of a standard 90-minute football match, with the potential to extend into extra time and/or penalties should the sides be drawn at the end of regulation.

The match will be filmed from multiple camera positions and be streamed on SportsFlick, with a small crowd of family and friends in attendance to witness the drama in person.

Playing at Bankwest Stadium means The Wednesday League will have the benefits of a full event day experience with the Stadium’s two big screens, PA system and all levels of LED in operation.

Following the conclusion of the match, there will be a brief post-match trophy and medal presentation.

Bankwest Stadium General Manager of Commercial, Shane Stoddard, says the Stadium is proud to be supporting such a unique community initiative.

“Bankwest Stadium has quickly become an integral part of the New South Wales sporting landscape and was designed to host any event, big or small,” said Mr Stoddard.

“We are delighted to have The Wednesday League here and help give what is a fantastic initiative a big platform for their feature match.”

More information on The Wednesday League can be found on their Facebook, Instagram and YouTube platforms.

Pixar Putt to take over Bankwest Stadium Precinct during September School Holidays

Families and Friends rejoice! Australia’s most talked about mini-golf sensation, Pixar Putt, is coming to the Bankwest Stadium precinct this September during the school holidays.

From Saturday 26 September until Sunday 25 October, the Sydney community will be able to experience a one-of-a-kind activity that is fun for all.

“This has been a challenging year for everyone and we are delighted to be hosting a number of  safe, fun community-based events,” Mr Kerry said.

“Bankwest Stadium has been embraced by the wider community and is again showing it’s a home for everyone and any event.”

Pixar Putt joins the Disney+ Drive-In, also announced for Banwkest Stadium this September, in transforming the precinct into a Disney-themed wonderland.

Tickets officially go on sale Friday 11 September, 8:00am, via Visa cardholders can exclusively unlock Pre-Sale tickets from 8:00am Wednesday 9 September until 9:00am Friday 11 September.

While many familiar favourites will return, this year’s Pixar Putt at Bankwest Stadium will see the debut of five brand-new holes, including Disney-Pixar’s latest hit, Onward which features ‘Guinevere’ the van; a new Toy Story 4 hole featuring Benson, the ventriloquist puppet henchman; completely redesigned holes inspired by Pixar favourites, Ratatouille and Coco; plus a hole inspired by the brand new movie Soul which is scheduled for a cinema release in December!

Pixar Putt punters will also be able to take advantage of Ticketek’s world-leading partnership with Afterpay. Available via the Ticketek app or website, Afterpay is the world’s largest buy-now-pay-later service, offering fans greater flexibility to pay for tickets in four equal instalments and secure their tee-off with the first payment.

“We are thrilled to be bringing back Pixar Putt to Sydney this September and debuting 5 brand new holes for the first time worldwide, here in Parramatta,” says Tim McGregor, Managing Director TEG Live.

“Pixar Putt will be operating under a full COVID Safe plan in consultation with Bankwest Stadium and the NSW State Government, and we are very proud that the event already has good COVID-safe measures built into the course. With only 4 golfers per hole and 18 holes spread over 800 square metres at Bankwest Stadium Precinct, there is plenty of space for patrons to stay safe, have fun and kick some serious Putt!”

The safety of patrons and staff is TEG Life Like Touring and The Walt Disney Company’s top priority and Pixar Putt will operate with a commitment to a COVID Safe environment.  Pixar Putt’s COVID Safe measures include capped player numbers on the course at all times; physical distancing measures in queues and on course; sanitiser stations located onsite; plus sanitising of all golfing equipment between users for every session each day.

The Grand Final Day will mark the culmination of an abbreviated season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which saw the resumption of some major competitions and the start of community football on 18 July after they were temporarily delayed in line with advice from the NSW Government and health authorities.

“The NSWRL has a proud tradition of hosting its Grand Final day at the end of September and I’m thrilled we will be able to maintain that this season in what has been a testing year for all sporting fans across the state,” said NSWRL Chief Executive David Trodden.

“The Presidents Cup is a unique competition that brings together teams from across regional NSW and the Sydney metropolitan area and the matches have been tough contests with plenty of skill.

“The Harvey Norman NSW Women’s Premiership remains the premier women’s competition in the state with a pathway to the NSW Women’s Origin team while the Sydney Shield has gone from strength to strength since it first started in 2012.

“It’s also great that our players will get to play the ultimate game of the season at a state-of-the-art facility in Bankwest Stadium and I wish them all the very best for the rest of the regular season and the finals series.”

The NSWRL announced a five-year partnership with Bankwest Stadium last season as a finals venue for NSWRL competitions; and Bankwest Stadium CEO Daryl Kerry said the Western Sydney venue was thrilled to be hosting three NSWRL Grand Finals this September.

“Mark down Sunday 27 September as an important day on the rugby league calendar in NSW,” said Kerry.

“While it continues to be a challenging year for sport and everyone in our community, we’ll be working closely with the relevant authorities to ensure we have the best possible atmosphere for Grand Final Day.

“The Stadium team will implement the NSW Public Health Orders in place at the time to ensure a safe environment for players, officials and spectators. We will also do our best to ensure Bankwest Stadium comes alive for this special event.”

The Presidents Cup is a unique competition represented by clubs across Sydney and regional NSW including North Sydney Bears, Dubbo CYMS, Thirroul Butchers, Wests Illawarra, Western Rams, Hills Bulls, Wentworthville Magpie, Maitland Pickers and Glebe-Burwood Wolves.

The Sydney Shield includes defending premiers Ryde-Eastwood Hawks, Hills Bulls, Belrose Eagles, Moorebank Rams, Wentworthville United, East Campbelltown, Cronulla Caringbah, Helensburgh Tigers and Sydney University.

The Harvey Norman NSW Women’s Premiership includes the Central Coast Roosters, Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, North Sydney Bears, Wests Tigers, Wentworthville Magpies, Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks and South Sydney Rabbitohs.
