Sydney FC will step up their hunt for a record third consecutive A-League Championship this week, with Adelaide United confirmed as their Semi-Final opponents at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium on Saturday, June 19.

The Sky Blues will become the only football club in Australian National League history to win three Grand Finals in a row and one of just a handful of professional sports clubs to complete a 'threepeat', should they win the Grand Final on June 26.

Head Coach Steve Corica is excited about the prospect of creating more history for Sydney FC.

"These next two weeks could be momentous for everyone connected with our club," he said.

"It has been our goal since the start of the season to re-write the record books and create more history, and now we have a very big chance to do that.

"We are just one game away from another grand final, our fifth in seven years, and that is a great credit to our squad and my staff."

Corica said that a lot of work had gone into the last week in preparation for the crucial weeks ahead.

"Now we know who we are up against it. We'll start to ramp things up," he said.

"It has been fantastic to be able to give our players a rest and refresh after a tough season, but I've no doubt we'll be ready and on song come this very important semi-final."

Sydney FC Members are advised to get in early to buy tickets, where they can purchase up to two semi-final tickets at 50 per cent off. Tickets are available at Ticketek.
