The 2019 Hyundai A-League Champions Sydney FC will be presented with the 2020 Premiers Plate on Tuesday night at Kogarah's NetStrata Jubilee Oval if they secure the required one point they need to be crowned Premiers against the Newcastle Jets.

Sydney kept on their winning way defeating Wellington 3-1 on Friday night as the Hyundai A-League re-started after 116 days in wet and windy conditions.

Only a point will be needed against the Newcastle Jets on Tuesday night at Netstrata Jubilee Oval for the Sky Blues to clinch the title.

Sydney sits on top of the Hyundai A-League ladder on 51 points, with 3rd placed Wellington Phoenix, the only team who can equal that mark, which doesn't look likely after the Sky Blues put them to the sword with a late goal flurry on Friday.

Sydney FC Head Coach Steve Corica believes the players deserve to lift the trophy at their home ground.

"We've got a fantastic record at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium and I think it would be ideal to be able to lift the trophy at our home ground and in front of our Members if we can get the required result.

"We are not there yet, but we are confident we can wrap up the title on Tuesday night and the boys can enjoy it with a couple of days off, before our next game ten days later.

"We still have our targets to hit this season; however, so the hard work doesn't stop.

"We want to achieve those and ensure we are accelerating into the Finals Series," Corica said

Sydney FC will become the first club in Hyundai A-League history to win the Premier's Plate four times once they get the points.

The Sky Blues could also become the first club to notch five Hyundai A-League Championships with a second successive Grand Final win this season.

It will also be the third time in four years that the club will have won the accolade.

Sydney FC Members will be on hand to witness the celebrations should the Sky Blues secure at least a draw, and need to apply to attend via the bar codes emailed to them last week.

The Sky Blues will be presented with the trophy at the club's next home game should they not gain the required points on Tuesday night.
