Sydney Olympic FC submit expression of interest for Australia’s National Second Division

·

Sydney Olympic FC have submitted an expression of interest to participate in Australia’s National Second Division competition.

“Exciting times are ahead for the game!” the Club wrote on Facebook.

Representatives of the Association of Australian Football Club’s (AAFC) National Second Division Partner Group first met in October last year in Sydney, to make final decisions as to the commencement of Australia’s National Second Football Division in 2024.

According to the AAFC, in the first three years of operation, teams in the National Second Division will not face relegation, due to the large financial outlay in joining the division. The league will commence with 12 teams, with the hope of increasing it to 16 by its third year.

At the time,  Sydney Olympic FC director, Lawrie McKinna, said he was pleased with the outcome of the meeting.

“Sydney Olympic is a historic club and its place is in the major divisions of Australian Football. We are not the only ones asking for it, the representatives of the clubs who were at the meeting also expressed it to me. They want Sydney Olympic in the National Second Division and that is positive for our club,” Mr McKinna said at the time.
