“I want to assure the members and friends of Sydney Olympic that the Club president Damon Hatzimanolis, players, coaches and his thousands of fans want to see their team compete in the new National Division and I am sure we will achieve it.

“From the beginning, we have carefully studied all the participation files and our club meets all the conditions for participation.

“We have a stadium with high standards of football facilities, excellent finances, sponsors, fans and a rich long history in Australian football, for this reason I am optimistic that 2024 will find us in the new National Division.”
