Blue and white echoes the heart of Sydney Olympic FC, yet Peter Kekeris shows in a jersey presentation that red and white will suit the players very nicely as they battle it out for the 2021 NSW NPL title.
Sydney Olympic Club President Bill Papas said the blue and white strips will continue as the main jersey design for the 2021 season, also adding that he was proud of the inclusion of the Pan Hellenic logo on the top back of the jerseys.
“Blue and White is synonymous with Olympic and that will never change,” Bill Papas said.
“Recently I had the great pleasure and honour of leading a consortium, including my fellow Olympic Director Damon Hanlin to acquire Xanthi Athletic Group Football Club.
“The purchase of Xanthi FC, is a huge boost for talented players of Sydney Olympic Football Club as we now have the premier development pathway in Australia and will provide the most exciting opportunity for our players to progress into the professional football environment.”
To signify the establishment of the new football group and pathway, Sydney Olympic Football Club announced they will be adopting the red and white stripes of Xanthi FC as its alternate strip for the 2021 season.
The squad is in action on Saturday night against Macarthur Rams FC at Lynwood Park, St Helens Park with 1st grade kicking off at 7pm. The Under 18 and 20 squads will also be in action kicking off at 3pm and 5pm respectively.
For any fans coming out for a look on Saturday, the players will be wearing the alternate red and white strip for the first time in this match.
