About team

Now in its 9th year, and open to boys and girls, aged 8-18, The Sydney Youth Cup gives players the opportunity to play football & test themselves in the spirit of fair play, against interstate and international opposition in a controlled and professional environment. We want to let players experience what life is like as a footballer; travelling, training, playing & having fun as a squad. The team bonding will benefit players, coaching staff and parents alike.

All teams involved in the Sydney Youth Cup will play a minimum of 5 games in a group phase progressing into a knockout phase & finals (excluding U8s-U11s). Numbers permitting, teams will be allocated into correct ability and age ranges and placed in divisions appropriate to player levels. The games will be held in Sydney Olympic Park, a first class facility to host a high-quality tournament in the city of Sydney.

Previous SYC tournaments were a resounding success, with over 50 local, interstate and overseas teams competing. It was amazing to watch the skill level of all the players improve significantly throughout the tournament. We look forward to meeting your team at the 2017 Sydney Youth Cup. Social activities will be arranged. Please stay informed during the tournament by visiting our website and social media platforms – Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and please subscribe, like or follow us on any of these to keep updated.

I look forward to meeting you all and wish you all the best for the tournament.

Sharing your passion for The World Game,
George Lazarou
Director of Football Operations
