“We were all wearing pride scrunchies and ribbons to celebrate.

“It was really great to see all the support from everyone and just have a really good environment.”

“It was the best afternoon, and thank you to the team for the Pride Celebration we all reflected at the end there how important it is,” he said.

“It’s really not that long ago that these things wouldn’t have happened, we had an absolute ball and 100% would love to come see some more matches.”

In addition to the Pride Celebration, Sydney FC has undergone LGBTQIA+ inclusion training to all players and staff.
