Subway Socceroos v Lebanon CommBank Stadium

The March FIFA Men’s International Window will see the resumption of the Second Round of qualification for FIFA World Cup 2026™, following the AFC Asian Cup™ Qatar 2023 being held throughout January and February 2024.

This fixture will be the first time the Subway Socceroos have faced Lebanon in this qualification period, following victories over Bangladesh (7-0) and Palestine (l-0) to open their campaign in November.

Football Australia CEO, James Johnson expressed his excitement at the prospect of having the Subway Socceroos playing in front of home fans.

“We are thrilled to host the Subway Socceroos for this FIFA World Cup 2026 Qualifier at CommBank Stadium, a venue renowned for its world-class facilities,” Johnson said.

“This event not only signifies the resumption of our journey towards the FIFA World Cup but also reflects the vibrant football culture in New South Wales, thanks to the region’s high grassroots participation rates.

“We are grateful for the support of the NSW Government and Destination NSW. Their commitment has been instrumental in bringing such high-calibre fixtures and events to our shores. This partnership also reflects our shared commitment to fostering football at the community level, including the recently held National Youth Championships.

“We look forward to delivering an exceptional experience for players and fans alike,” concluded Johnson.

Subway Socceroos’ Head Coach, Graham Arnold said his players relished any opportunity to play in front of Australian fans.

“Our players are scattered across the world when playing for their clubs, the excitement they have to come together as a group and representthe nation has been a cornerstone of our success,” Arnold said.

“The opportunity to play in front of home fans and feel the energy they bring is so valuable for us, it provides a massive lift, not just in those individual moments but for the many that follow in our qualification journey.

“For the likes of Maty Ryan, Mitch Duke, Keanu Baccus and others from New South Wales, it’s important they enjoy the chance to wear the Australian jersey in their hometown in front of friends and family.

“It doesn’t matter how many times it comes about, playing in front of those who have helped you on your journey through football is such a rewarding and humbling experience, and celebrating that is an integral part of the culture we’ve built within this squad,” concluded Arnold.

During the Second Round- which doubles as direct qualifiers for the AFC Asian Cup 2027™ in Saudi Arabia – the Subway Socceroos will play against Bangladesh, Lebanon and Palestine in a home-and­ away round-robin format, between November 2023 and June 2024.

The ‘Unite Round’ is being introduced for the 2023-24 and 2024-25 seasons, as the APL’s partnership with DNSW enters its second year. As part of the updated partnership, the hosting rights for the Grand Finals will revert to the traditional format with hosting rights awarded to the highest placed qualifier from the Semi Finals, starting from season 2023-24.

During ‘Unite Round’, the double header matches will be hosted at Allianz Stadium, CommBank Stadium and Leichhardt Oval, and grassroots tournaments for junior boys and girls will take place at venues across Sydney.

A live site at Moore Park will also feature a fan park and viewing party for the AFC Asian Cup match in Qatar between Australia and India’s men’s teams on Saturday 13 January at 10:30pm AEDT.

The Hon Stephen Conroy, Chair of APL, said:

“We saw record crowds in the men’s and women’s finals series last season, and we again saw the appetite for professional football in NSW during the FIFA Women’s World Cup. Having all of our teams play in one place, over one weekend, is a fantastic way to serve up the best of the A-Leagues for our fans.

“We are one of the only leagues in the world where almost every club has both men’s and women’s teams, so we are uniquely positioned to create an event like this.

“We thank Premier Minns and the NSW Government for this fundamentally important partnership and for their continuing support for the development of football in Australia.”

Danny Townsend, CEO of APL said:

“The Unite Round is a brand new experience which brings together all A-Leagues clubs, fans and grassroots players together for the very first time in Sydney in an unprecedented celebration of football. With the women’s domestic attendance record already broken twice on the first day of this season, we are looking forward to welcoming A-Leagues fans, old and new, to experience our leagues.”

“We have worked closely with our clubs and fans to ensure that there are suitable constructive mechanisms for the voices of fans to be heard. Many of the resulting conversations have included the hosting of the Grand Finals, and the strong sentiments around that, and we thank DNSW and Premier Minns for their partnership in creating a truly inclusive experience for our game.”

Premier Chris Minns said:

“Unite Round is great news for the football community, and for NSW.

“This will bring fans and players from around the country together in Sydney.

“I encourage fans to get involved in this festival of football.

Minister for Jobs and Tourism John Graham said:

“This is a chance for fans and players from right around Australia to come together, be united and be part of something special right here in Sydney.

“The Unite Round is a win-win for fans, the game and NSW as it will provide more opportunity for all players and fans to be part of an inclusive football celebration in Sydney.

“Unite Round will also deliver strong economic and community benefits for the people of NSW – it is estimated Unite Round will attract more than 42,000 people to Sydney for the event and generate more than $10.2 million in visitor expenditure for the state’s economy.

Minister for Sport Steve Kamper said:

“Sydney has more football fans and players than any other state and our culture of celebrating major sporting milestones is second-to-none.

“We can’t wait to welcome Australia’s football family to Sydney for the debut A-Leagues Unite Round next January and to see this tradition grow.

“This will be the first sporting code to celebrate a full men’s and women’s round in a single city in Australia.”

For the Isuzu UTE A-League Men, ‘Unite Round’ will be an additional round – making it a 27-game regular season. The existing Round 12 fixtures are being moved to new dates and times. For the
Liberty A-League Women, ‘Unite Round’ will use the existing Round 12 fixtures, keeping the season as a 22-game regular season.

This A-Leagues event is supported by the NSW Government through its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.

Tickets for A-Leagues ‘Unite Round’ will go on sale from Monday 6 November.

Wallabies name squad to face Argentina in Sydney’s only Test of ’23

By Matt Cleary

LOS Pumas of Argentina will return to the scene of their country’s most famous rugby victory when they take on the Wallabies at CommBank Stadium on Saturday July 15 in the only Sydney Test match this year.

It was here in November of 2020 that Argentina beat the famous New Zealand All Blacks, 25-15, securing their country’s first victory – home, away, anywhere – over the Kiwi rugby powerhouse.

Two years later Argentina followed it up with perhaps their greatest victory – a 25-18 win over those same All Blacks, but this time on the Kiwis’ home turf in Christchurch.

That the All Blacks romped to a 53-3 win a week later didn’t diminish the achievement of Los Pumas, their inspiration gleaned from Australian coach Michael Cheika. Simply: the former Waratahs and Wallabies coach, made the Argentine players believe.

And they still do, sitting just behind Australia in eighth position on a crowded World Rugby rankings list.

Skilful and dynamic No.8 Rob Valetini has been named in Eddie Jones’s first squad ahead of the Rugby World Cup. Picture: Rugby Australia

It won’t have gone unnoticed by Cheika’s fellow Randwick Old Boy, the famously competitive and super-canny man-manager, Eddie Jones.

The Wallabies coach has named a handy squad of youth and experience ahead of the two-Test ‘bracket’ which begins against the Springboks on Saturday 8 July in Pretoria and runs into the Pumas in Parramatta.

An interesting selection is uncapped Tom Hooper, a two-metre tall 22-year-old named to start on the opposite flank to veteran warhorse Michael Hooper (no relation) who’ll run out in his traditional No.7.

Jones told reporters that Hooper the younger impresses him because “he rips in, mate”.

“He had a late start because of injury and his first few games weren’t very impressive and I thought does Stevie [Brumbies coach Stephen Larkham] really know what he’s talking about here?

“But certainly, towards the end of the season, he was an absolute standout,” Jones said.

In the halves Jones has elected to give first dibs to veterans Nic White and Quade Cooper with Tate McDermott and potential debutant Carter Gordon expected to play long minutes in the altitude of Loftus Versfeld.

It would not surprise to see Jones swap this arrangement around come the Sydney Test.

Prop Zane Nonggorr, 21, and lock Richie Arnold, 33, are other likely debutants, while former Melbourne Storm winger Suli Vunivalu will look to add to his one Test dossier.

Nick Frost will be a go-to in the line-out for Australia. Picture: Rugby Australia.

With a vocal contingent of Pumas fans expected in a crowd upwards of 25,000, CommBank Stadium’s famously sheer seating will provide a brilliant and ‘tight’ match-day atmosphere.

In a World Cup year the Test match is the only chance for Sydneysiders to see the Wallabies ahead of the Rugby World Cup in France that kicks off 8 September.

Tickets are available at Ticketek.

Sports Fans To Descend On Parramatta This Week For Women’s State Of Origin and A-League Men’s Grand Final

It’s a huge week of events in Western Sydney with CommBank Stadium gearing up to host two sporting blockbusters . . . Ampol Women’s State of Origin 1 on Thursday night and the highly anticipated Isuzu UTE Men’s A-League Grand Final on Saturday night.

The City of Parramatta will come alive as large crowds turn out for both feature events, with restaurants and bars in Eat Street and throughout Parramatta welcoming fans pre-and-post games.

CommBank Stadium CEO Daryl Kerry has urged fans to take advantage of the fact return travel on Sydney Trains, Metro and Light Rail services is included in tickets to both big events. Fans only need to show their event ticket to Transport staff when boarding services.

“There is real excitement around these two events at CommBank Stadium and great family entertainment is planned at both the Women’s State of Origin game on Thursday and the A-League Men’s Grand Final on Saturday,” Mr Kerry said.

“The best advice is to take advantage of the train travel being included in tickets, arrive early, and soak up the big-game atmosphere.”

A crowd of more than 10,000 is expected on Thursday night as the NSW Sky Blues strive to defend their State of Origin crown won last year from the marauding Maroons who have won 18 of the past 24 series.

Tickets start from just $20 for adults with Family Tickets from $40, with kids under-15 free with a paying adult. Gates open at 5:15pm with a big night of entertainment planned ahead of the 7:45pm kick-off.

The Sky Blues team is stacked with star performers, including the electrifying Emma Tonegato at fullback, centres Isabelle Kelly and Jessica Sergis and power props Kezie Apps and Millie Boyle.

Kelly won the Nellie Doherty Medal as Player of the Series last year.

 On Saturday, all eyes will be on the Isuzu UTE Men’s A-League Grand Final when Melbourne City, the best performed team of season 2022/23, line up against the surging Central Coast Mariners.

It will be the first Grand Final since 2012/13 for the Mariners who have defied the odds to win their way through the decider and they will bring scores of fans and a wave of Yellow and Navy to CommBank Stadium for their shot at title glory.

But the team with the smallest budget in the A-League will be up against arguably the A-League’s richest club Melbourne City, who are now in to their fourth Grand Final in as many years, triumphing in 2020/21 but suffering heart breaking losses to Sydney FC in 2019/20 and again to Western United last season.

The two sides faced off twice in the regular season, with City winning the first encounter 1-0 in sweltering conditions before a gripping 1-1 draw in Round 24 which was one of the games of the season, littered with chances down either end and played at a relentless tempo.

A near full house is anticipated at CommBank Stadium, with the stands expected to feature plenty of Yellow and Navy Blue as Mariners fans have snapped up a majority of tickets.

A convoy of buses will barrel down the M1 on Saturday from Gosford, bringing thousands of Mariners fans to the Grand Final.

However, there will still be a solid number of fans singing for the Sky Blue, Red and White of Melbourne City, along with a number of neutral football fans keen to witness the Grand Final after a fantastic season of football.

Gates open at 6:15pm on Saturday with a big night of off-field entertainment highlighted by a performance by popular electric band Mashd N Kutcher. There’s also street food, a pre-match show and fireworks, along with a trophy presentation to the winning team at fulltime.

Round One will also feature standalone matches at Sunshine Coast Stadium (Brisbane Broncos against Sydney Roosters in the first ever NRLW primetime fixture) and the CommBank Stadium fixture (Parramatta Eels against Wests Tigers). New teams Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks and Canberra Raiders will face off in the final clash of the first round, as part of a Sharks Club double header at PointsBet Stadium.

The new Premiership will feature nine standalone double headers in all Club markets (Townsville, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney and Canberra), as well as 18 Club double headers (NRLW matches before NRL fixtures). All Club fans will have the opportunity to show their support for the women’s teams at home with every team to host a Club double header.

The schedule will also include fixtures at classic rugby league suburban stadiums and state-of-the-art new facilities, including Sunshine Coast Stadium, WIN Stadium, Queensland Country Bank Stadium, GIO Stadium, PointsBet Stadium, Totally Workwear Stadium (Langlands Park), CommBank Stadium, Campbelltown Stadium, Industree Group Stadium and Belmore Sports Ground, creating greater opportunity to connect with fans and key market areas.

Round Two will feature the south-east Queensland derby between Brisbane Broncos and Gold Coast Titans, ahead of the Broncos’ Thursday night NRL match against Sydney Roosters at the Gabba, marking the first time a football code has played a women’s and men’s double header at the ground.

Round Three will feature an all-Queensland double header at QCBS Stadium, Townsville, involving North Queensland Cowboys and Brisbane Broncos in both the men’s and women’s competition, as well as the Grand Final rematch between Parramatta Eels and Newcastle Knights at CommBank Stadium, ahead of the Eels’ NRL clash with St George Illawarra Dragons.

The final two rounds will feature primetime Thursday night matches for the first time ever – with NRLW kicking off the weekend of footy when the Sharks and the Dragons facing off on in Round 8, followed by Wests Tigers against 2022 Premiers Newcastle Knights the following Thursday in Round 9.

The NRL Telstra Women’s Premiership Grand Final will be played on Sunday 1 October before the men’s decider.

The draw has been completed through detailed consultation with Clubs, the RLPA and partners to manage the complexity of a number of constraints this year, including the loss of stadiums due to the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

“This year’s NRL Telstra Women’s Premiership will be super charged with four new teams, nine regular-season rounds, followed by semi-finals and a Grand Final,” NRL CEO Andrew Abdo said.

“In 2023, there will be new rivalries and new timeslots with every match being broadcast on free-to-air TV nationally with primetime coverage for the first time ever.

“The schedule will include a balance of standalone double headers, Club double headers and standalone fixtures at new venues, aimed at maximising the opportunity for fans to experience the Premiership live or on broadcast across a range of markets,” Abdo said.

Every match of the season will be available for fans to watch on the Nine Network, Fox Sports and Kayo Sports.

Celebrating 4 Years at CommBank Stadium – the Home of Sport & Entertainment in Western Sydney

Happy Birthday, CommBank Stadium. It’s four years today since CommBank Stadium opened its doors to the community.

In that four years, the Stadium has quickly become part of the sporting and social fabric of booming Western Sydney.

In coming weeks, CommBank Stadium will welcome its 2 millionth fan through the gates, with 1,943,297 fans having so far turned out for 180 ticketed sport and entertainment events at the Stadium.

Another 100,000-plus people have attended the Stadium for business, community, charity and cultural events, with the Stadium hosting scores of off-field events each week in the venue’s function rooms.

PARRAdise
Wanderland

Nicknamed PARRAdise for Parramatta Eels home games and Wanderland whenever the Western Sydney Wanderers play at home, CommBank Stadium regularly hosts NRL and NRLW, A-Leagues Men & Women’s games, Rugby Test matches and Rugby Sevens internationals, Socceroos and Matildas football internationals. It has hosted the Sydney SuperFight boxing event featuring Tim Tszyu, plus a number of community sporting events.

Built “For The Fans”, the 30,000-seat CommBank Stadium at North Parramatta (generically named Western Sydney Stadium) features the steepest grandstands in the country and offers a unique game-day experience, with fans closer to the action than ever before.

More than 30,000 fans turned out on Sunday 14 April, 2019 for a Community Open Day, which doubled as a test event for the Stadium.

Mitchell Moses is the top points scorer at the Stadium

Parramatta Eels Members and supporters will never forget their team’s first game on the hallowed turf on Easter Monday, eight days later. Cheered on by a capacity crowd of 29,047, the Eels thrashed Western Sydney rivals Wests Tigers 51-6, with halfback Mitchell Moses – who grew up close to the Stadium – creating history by scoring the first try and kicking the first goal and field goal at the new Stadium, built on a historic sporting precinct at Parramatta.

The highest attendance to date at CommBank Stadium was the 29,372 posted for the Eels’ stunning Finals win over the Brisbane Broncos on 15 September 2019, with the Eels triumphant 58-0.

The Western Sydney Wanderers’ first game was against famous touring English club Leeds United on 20 July, 2019, with the game going down to the wire before Leeds snuck home in injury time.

Mitch Duke celebrates scoring the winner in the first derby at CommBank Stadium

The Wanderers set a football crowd benchmark on 26 October 2019 when 28,519 turned out for the Sydney Derby against arch-rivals Sydney FC, the Wanderers winning 1-0 thanks to a Mitch Duke special.

The Stadium has welcomed Australian rock legends Cold Chisel and Hoodoo Gurus and global superstar Sir Elton John, hosted stunning black-tie functions including charity partner Ronald McDonald House Greater Western Sydney’s 40th anniversary event, and even hosted a successful Drive-In movie theatre and a hugely popular Pixar Putt mini golf course in the precinct.

CommBank Stadium played a central role for Sydney during the global pandemic, hosting numerous NRL and A-League events in a controlled environment, and it was the first stadium in NSW to host events after the 100-days lockdown in 2021.

Western Sydney Long Lunch in December 2022

Last December, the Stadium hosted Western Sydney’s Long Lunch to kick-start Sydney’s summer of events. It featured a menu designed by Australian food icon Matt Moran, as well as a performance by superstar vocal group Human Nature.

A huge 2023 is unfolding at CommBank Stadium as the Wanderers strive for A-League glory and the Eels push for NRL Finals.

The Liberty A-League Women’s Grand Final will be played at CommBank Stadium on Sunday 30 April, and the Isuzu UTE Men’s Grand Final soon after.

On Saturday 15 July, the Wallabies will host Argentina in the only rugby international in Sydney this year.

CommBank Stadium has won 20 different awards across architecture and design, construction and engineering, tourism and leisure, sustainability, operations and function since it opened with a Community Open Day on 14 April 2019.

In 2020, it was the first stadium in the world to be awarded LEED v4 Gold Certification from the US Green Building Council for sustainability.

A City of Parramatta council report in 2019 showed that major events at CommBank Stadium can inject as much as $1 million into the local business community as fans pour into the city pre and post-game.

So it was fitting, perhaps, that CommBank Stadium was this year allocated a place name on the new Parramatta edition of the world’s most famous board game, Monopoly.

Happy Birthday, CommBank Stadium!

CommBank Stadium lights up Green & Gold as football fans welcome home Socceroos heroes on Friday night

The Socceroos play Ecuador on Friday night at CommBank Stadium, the match billed as something of a “Thank You” to fans who so lifted the team on their memorable run to the Round of 16 in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™.

And for sure there’ll be mutual admiration from players to fans and back again. It was a brilliant journey for the nation and with a bit of luck Australia could’ve gone deeper – how we leapt in the air when Garang Kuol nearly slid one past Argentina goal-keeper Emiliano “Dibu” Martinez.

Today Kuol, 18, is but one of the storylines among those picked by Socceroos coach Graham Arnold. And while 20 of the 26-man squad were in Qatar, there’s plenty of interest in how uncapped young ones go.

Consider Alexander Robertson. The 19-year-old played junior football with Hakoah Sydney City East FC before heading to the UK to play youth team football at famous Manchester United.

He was then poached by cross-town rivals Manchester City, where he currently trains as a midfielder under Pep Guardiola and alongside superstars Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne.

Robertson also represented England at several junior levels and qualifies to represent Scotland and Peru. Yet when Arnold called ahead of the Socceroos game against Ecuador on Friday night at CommBank Stadium, Robertson was all in for Australia.

A family matter, you see. If he gets on the field, Robertson will follow in the footsteps of father Mark (who debuted for the Socceroos in 2001) and grandfather Alex Snr (1984).

“To be a third generation to pull on that Socceroos jersey would be something special,” Robertson says.

On the players he’s largely meeting for the first time this week, Robertson says he can’t wait to be a part of what appears such a strong and happy camp.

“I feel like the whole group and the camp itself, looking from the outside, looks really strong. They all look ‘together’ as a team and you saw that at the World Cup.

“Me going in there, I can’t wait to go and play with good players. I just want to add my qualities and values to the team and then hopefully we can get some more success in the future,” Robertson says.

Fans will have a first peak at that future on Friday night at CommBank Stadium when the Socceroos campaign for the FIFA World Cup 2026™ in North America and Mexico begins.

While this match is being promoted as a homecoming, it’s three years from when Arnold will have a good idea of his squad. Thus every match in the green-and-gold is a chance to impress the gaffer.

Along with established stars jetting in from leagues around the world – names like Maty Ryan, Milos Degenek, Aaron Mooy and Mitch Duke were on front and back pages last year – Arnold has picked several uncapped players along with Robertson, notably Aiden O’Neill (24, Melbourne City), Joe Gauci (22, Adelaide United) and Jordan Bos (20, Melbourne City).

The exotically-named Nestory Irankunda – a goal-scoring winger from Adelaide United who turned 17 in February – has been brought into the squad as a “train-on” player. Arnold, though, has hinted Irankunda might spend some minutes on the field.

And if that happens and the Tanzanian teengager does half of what Kuol did for the A-Leagues All Stars in last year’s match against Barcelona, Arnold will have found another hot one.

And another great story of Australia.

Arnold says Irankunda has “special qualities”.

“For a kid at the age of 17 . . . the physique on him, the speed on him – it’s exciting.

“He’s coming in for an experience but that’s not ruling out game time,” Arnold says.

While important to his forward planning for 2026, for Arnold the match is also a chance to give back to fans. The Socceroos took the country on a trip in Qatar in 2022 and the players and officials were very aware of the buzz they created back home. Indeed they thrived on it.

“We saw the scenes back home in Australia during the World Cup and it would be wonderful to recreate that buzz and excitement during this upcoming series, where football fans can thank the players for their efforts and together, we can reminisce on a special moment in Australian sporting history,” Arnold says.
