A crowd of almost 15,000 will pour into AAMI Park in Melbourne on Sunday after the A-League grand final was officially declared a sellout.
Fans of Melbourne City and Sydney FC moved quickly to snap up the final tickets which were limited to 50% capacity because of COVID-19 restrictions in Victoria.
But supporters who missed out – and thousands of Sydney FC fans unable to travel because of those restrictions – are able to watch the game for free via Kayo Freebies, with the grand final being shown live and free for the first time.
Once the final tickets were sold, A-League Commissioner Greg O’Rourke said he wasn’t surprised the game had sold out once it was confirmed that Melbourne city would host the game.
“This could be a historic game for both sides, as Melbourne City are hosting their first grand final and Sydney FC are chasing a third straight title, so we’re delighted that we will have the biggest crowd we can under the current circumstances,” O’Rourke said.
“It’s also fantastic that the A-League Grand Final will be available to the Australian public live and free thanks to Kayo Freebies.
“The two best teams in the country on the league table are going head to head, and it should be an epic encounter.”
