Sydney Olympic FC to compete in newly proposed NPL competition

·

Sydney Olympic Football Club are the latest team to announce their participation in the newly proposed NPL New South Wales Men’s and Women’s competitions.

Football NSW recently outlined an alternative format for the 2020 competition comprising 11 rounds and a two week semi final system, asking all NPL clubs to reaffirm their place in the competition.

Awaiting formal notice from Football NSW next week, Sydney Olympic CEO John Boulous said he is excited to participate in the revised season.

“It has been a tough time for many in recent months due to COVID-19, but we are very lucky our Club Directors remain committed to ensuring our Senior Men and Women squads are able to enter the revised competitions,” Club CEO John Boulous said upon the announcement.

“The reason to play was a very simple one, we are a football club with a strong tradition of competing at the highest level and our Directors had no hesitation in making the call to participate as a strong commitment to both our supporters and players and for the good of the return of football in NSW and Australia.”

The Sydney Olympic CEO says that while an “easy option” could have been to not participate and commence re-building for next season, they are grateful to their players for recognising the financial impact from decreased funding and sponsorship on the Club due to COVID-19.

“Our playing groups have all been willing to accept revised terms in their agreements to ensure we put the Club at the forefront of all decisions and are able to participate in the proposed competitions,” Mr Boulous continued.

“We are very appreciative of the consideration shown by the players and staff and their commitment to the bigger picture and Club requirements”.

The Sydney Olympic FC Women’s squads commenced training two weeks ago and the Men’s squads will commence training from Monday 29 June.
