Dear Sydney Olympic FC players, members, supporters and the wider football family,
We regret to announce that the General Manager of Canterbury City Council , Mr Jim Montague has advised us that Belmore Sports Ground remains unavailable for use by our club for another four weeks (refer attached letter). This means that the following home games will not be played at Belmore :
29/7, Round 17 v APIA
5/8, Round 18 v Blacktown City
19/8, Round 20 v Sutherland.
This is on top of earlier home rounds 6, 13, 14 & 15 where Council did not make the ground available for our use. It’s important to note that these decisions by Council have been mostly felt by our youngest teams as 70% of our club’s players are under the age of 18.
The Board’s frustration with the current situation at Belmore Sports Ground cannot be overstated and we strongly recommend that any concerns or complaints about the current situation be directed to Mr Jim Montague on 9789 9447.
