Sydney FC will play their seventh and final A-League match of the season at Jubilee Stadium on Sunday when they welcome Melbourne City to Kogarah.
The Sky Blues have eased into their time in the St George district. After losing their opening two fixtures to Melbourne Victory and Wellington, Sydney have gone on a four-match winning streak at Jubilee.
Wins over Newcastle, Adelaide, Central Coast and Brisbane at Kogarah have helped the Sky Blues climb to second place before their 2-1 loss to Victory in their Australia Day ‘Big Blue’ on Saturday.
Sydney FC are expected to return to Jubilee for their Asian Champions League campaign starting in March.
The Sky Blues announced in July they had committed to making Jubilee their major temporary home while Allianz Stadium underwent renovations.
Sydney FC were initially to split seven matches between Kogarah and Leichhardt Oval, with the Sky Blues to remain based at Moore Park after securing a deal to play six of their 13 home games at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
But instead Jubilee was given the go ahead as Sydney FC’s base, with Leichhardt to host two matches and the SCG the remaining four.
Reaction to Sydney FC’s tenure at Kogarah has been overwhelmingly positive, with Jubilee proving popular among the club’s supporters given its location, accessibility, facilities and vibrant atmosphere.
Players have also praised the quality of Jubilee’s playing surface.
Sydney FC have attracted 77,692 fans to their six games at Kogarah so far at an average of 12,949 per match.
