AFC Asian Cup Sydney Stadium Australia Sydney

Things are hotting up in Sydney and we're not just talking about the heat. World class football has come to Australia as 16 of Asia's best teams compete for the most sought-after trophy in Asian football. The biggest football tournament to ever take place in Australia, the AFC Asian Cup sees legions of fans coming from all over Australia and indeed the world to see these dynamos battle it out.

Hosting seven games in total, Sydney's Stadium Australia will also host the all-important clash between Oman and our home-grown Socceroos. Sydney's stake in the AFC Asian Cup culminates in a quarter final and then the semi-final, set to explode on Australia Day at Sydney Olympic Park. Football fans and first-timers unite thanks to surprisingly affordable ticket options offering the perfect end to school holidays.

Whether you're heading to Sydney from within Australia or are one of the many international fans making the pilgrimage to see your favourite team battle it out, Sydney visitor info will help make your visit easier and more enjoyable. From important information on public transport and getting to the stadium to what weather you can expect and even the legal drinking age (pre-game revellers beware), these handy hints will keep you out of trouble and having fun.

Tickets are on sale now and although booking fees may apply, you can still score tickets for a bargain price including just $5 for kids and only $40 for the whole family - that's cheaper than a trip to the cinema!

So grab your friends, chuck on your team colours and prepare for a football face off Sydney style. Coming to Sydney and need somewhere to stay? Check out our great range of Sydney hotels. We also have complete Sydney holiday packages for those wanting to combine their flights and accommodation.
