It’s ON! Liberty A-League Women’s Grand Final locked in for CommBank Stadium Sunday 30 April

The Australian Professional Leagues (APL) has unveiled CommBank Stadium in Western Sydney as the hosting venue for the 2022-23 Liberty A-League Women Grand Final on Sunday 30 April.

Ticket sales will open at 3pm Tuesday 21 February giving fans more opportunity than ever before to plan as the A-Leagues hope to achieve a record crowd at the women’s showpiece event.

In a historic year for women’s football, with bumper CommBank Matildas crowds and 500,000 tickets already sold for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023™, the Liberty A-League Women’s Grand Final marks another exciting moment on the women’s football calendar.

Commenting on the announcement, Danny Townsend, A-Leagues CEO, said: “With more girls playing football than ever before, the Matildas flying high, and the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023™ on our doorstep, this is truly an extraordinary year for women’s football in Australia.

“We have expanded the league by three teams and extended the women’s season to match international benchmarks, so we have all the ingredients in place for the women’s game to explode as we have seen in leagues overseas.

“We want to secure a lasting legacy for women’s football, so we need everyone to get behind the Liberty A-League Women and show the world the incredible talent and support that exists here in Australia and New Zealand.”

The Liberty A-League Grand Final will kick off at 4pm and will be broadcast exclusively on 10Bold, 10Play and Paramount+.

NSW Minister for Tourism Ben Franklin said: “Sydney is the nation’s home of football with a huge participation and supporter base and of course the nation’s best football stadium infrastructure.

“In a year where Sydney is celebrating women’s football with the most games of any city for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023™, it will be fantastic to see a packed CommBank Stadium for the Liberty A-League Women’s Grand Final as part of that celebration.”

Sydney to host A-League Men’s and Women’s Grand Finals for next three years

 Sydney will host the Isuzu UTE A-League Men’s, Liberty A-League Women’s Grand Final, the E-League Grand Final and a host of other football related events in a three-year deal, beginning in 2023.

The partnership between the Australian Professional Leagues (APL) and Destination NSW, the lead government agency for the NSW Tourism and Major Events sectors, is designed to develop an engaging Grand Final experience for football fans in Australia and New Zealand.

Danny Townsend, CEO of the APL, said: “The FIFA World Cup 2023 showed that we are a country of football fans and whet the region’s appetite for the FIFA Women’s World Cup next year. But fans don’t want to wait for four years in-between competitions to see our best sporting talent perform.

“Football fans now get the best of both worlds – they can now look forward to a showpiece Grand Final event in a set location, as well as watching A-Leagues and national team stars week-in-week-out at their local A-Leagues team.

“This is a unique opportunity to build a tradition for football fans. When you think about a cup final in England, you think about the trip to Wembley, and we want fans in Australia to look forward to the A-Leagues Grand Finals in the same way.

“We have already broken the previous record for attendance this season in the Liberty A-League Women and have set an objective to make history again with Grand Final attendance in the year that we host the FIFA Women’s World Cup.”

The A-Leagues move mirrors that of major football events around the world choosing a major city for their marquee events and working with it to develop a truly memorable experience for fans.

Minister for Tourism Ben Franklin said the addition of the A-Leagues Grand Finals to Sydney’s annual sporting events calendar would have significant benefits for NSW.

“As the nation’s home of football I am delighted to be partnering with the APL to bring the Men’s and Women’s A-Leagues Grand Finals to Sydney,” Mr Franklin said.

“Sydney is renowned for hosting world-class sporting events and we are going to create a new tradition for Australian football fans, making the Grand Finals a week-long extravaganza that showcases football and the best of the Harbour City.

“Tens of thousands of football fans are expected to flock to Sydney for the A-Leagues Grand Finals and are forecast to inject $26 million of visitor expenditure into NSW.

“This is another incredible addition to the already impressive calendar of world-class major events we are building for Sydney, which is a key pillar of our goal to make NSW the major events capital and premier visitor economy of the Asia Pacific.”

Minister for Sport Alister Henskens said as the state with the greatest footprint on the nation’s football landscape now was an exciting time to showcase the round ball game.

“With the FIFA Women’s World Cup coming and on the back of the Socceroos historic world cup in Qatar, football in Australia has never been stronger,” Mr Henskens said.

“NSW is home to the most clubs in the A-Leagues competition, with the greatest supporter base, most passionate fans, the highest level of football participation and the best football venues, including Australia’s largest rectangular football stadium.

“This new week-long football event will provide football and sports fans with an experience unique to all other codes and cement the A-League Grand Finals amongst the very best sporting events on our national sporting calendar.”

Danny Townsend said that between now and the Grand Finals on 30 April (Women’s), 27 May (ELeague), Saturday 3 June (Men’s), and the Dolan Warren Awards on Thursday 1 June, the priority for his commercial team was to work with the NSW Government to create a ‘must see’ experience for fans.

The marquee fixtures will be supported by a range of other football-related events and activities.

“We are working with transport and accommodation providers to develop special packages for travelling fans, including our Official Hotel Partner IHG who have committed to offer a special discounted rate to travelling fans. Because we have certainty about which city will be hosting the final from a long way out, we are able to build a ‘Festival of Football’ around these major events.”

The A-Leagues Grand Finals are proudly supported by the NSW Government through its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW and Office of Sport.

APL previously partnered with Destination NSW for the return of the A-Leagues All Stars who took on FC Barcelona at Accor Stadium in front of 70,174 fans . . . the largest event crowd in NSW since 2019.

Sydney Superfight: Historic Double-Header Boxing Event at Bankwest Stadium 16 December

The shooting star of Australian boxing, Tim Tszyu, will feature in a Sydney Superfight spectacular at Bankwest Stadium on Wednesday 16 December.

Tszyu, 25, the son of multiple world champion Kostya Tszyu who has won all 16 of his professional bouts and is charging toward a world title fight, will fight New Zealand champion Bowyn Morgan, 31, who has not lost a fight since 2016 and has a 22-1 record, knocking out his past three opponents.

The event will also feature the highly-anticipated blockbuster fight between Cronulla Sharks rugby league legend turned boxer Paul Gallen and UFC heavyweight Mark Hunt.

It will be the first boxing event ever staged at Bankwest Stadium in Western Sydney.

The history-making event is in partnership with the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW, which identified the event as a unique opportunity to drive visitation to NSW and amplify the state’s promotion around the globe. The fight will be broadcast on MAIN EVENT.

George Rose, CEO of No Limit Boxing, said the Sydney Super Fight will be an unforgettable event to end what has been a challenging year for everyone.

“It’s incredible to be in this position to put on one of the biggest live sporting events in Australia after the year we’ve all had,” Rose said.

“Hats off to everyone, especially the New South Wales Government, for the way in which they have managed the response to the pandemic, because the reality is without it, we wouldn’t be here today announcing this exciting event for punters to enjoy the week before Christmas.”

“As for the Sydney Super Fight itself, what’s not to love!?

“I expect it to not only be the biggest crowd for a fight in Australia this year, but also the biggest audience – full stop.

“Why wouldn’t it be? You’ve got the undisputed star of Australian boxing in Tim taking on the best from New Zealand in Morgan.

“Then there’s the two legends, two absolute sporting icons in Gal and Mark. Everyone knows there’s no love lost between these two.”

Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres welcomed the event, estimated to deliver over $1 million to the visitor economy, as another major win for Western Sydney and NSW.

“Sydney Super Fight joins an impressive list of major sporting events that have been secured for our state through the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.

“With Sydneysider Tim Tszyu, son of Australian boxing legend Kostya Tszyu, in the ring against the Kiwi champion, this will be a contest that boxing fans won’t want to miss, and I have no doubt Sydney Super Fight will be a sellout.

“Major events like Sydney Super Fight are key to the recovery of our state and we look forward to welcoming the contestants, officials, support staff and their fans to Western Sydney for another big night on the NSW sporting calendar,” Mr Ayres said.

The card will see Tim Tszyu return to the ring for the first time since his clinical disposal of Jeff Horn in Townsville in August. He will take on New Zealand’s Bowyn Morgan, who hasn’t tasted defeat since 2016 and has knocked out his past three opponents. Morgan is rated New Zealand No. 2 pound-for-pound fighter behind Joseph Parker and is ranked in the IBF’s Top 15 Welterweights. He lost the chance to move into the Top 10 when COVID robbed him of a hometown fight against Japanese based American Charles Bellamy.

Paul Gallen and Mark Hunt is a rare match-up set to attract the interest of all sports fans, excited to see two big men with big mouths finally go toe-to-toe after a previously scheduled contest for April was cancelled due to COVID-19.

Mark ‘Super Samoan’ Hunt, was one of UFC biggest hitters, regularly knocking out opponents throughout his UFC, MMA & Pride Fighting career. He was a fan favourite, with a huge following known for his antics in and out of the ring. Paul Gallen, undefeated in his 10 fight career, with 9 wins and a controversial draw in his highly publicised fight against Barry Hall. Renowned as one of the NRL’s toughest and hardest players throughout his stellar 348 game NRL career, Gallen is a fascinating opponent for Hunt.

Tickets for the Sydney Superfight go on sale at 10am Monday 2nd November via Ticketek.

Tickets are priced from $29 and are strictly limited due to COVID-19 restrictions. With at least eight fights on the bill, these prices reflect exceptional value for money. A limited number of tickets are available on the Bankwest Stadium surface with the majority of tickets located in the grandstands.
