In 2016, the Sydney FC Foundation was established to support the club’s youth development ambitions and the establishment of the Sydney FC Academy. Growing out of this initial mission, the Development Pathways pillar and the programs run within it aim to ensure that youth development continues to be a priority for the Club and the Foundation, enabling any young boy or girl to fulfill their dream of become a professional footballer.
Since its inception, the Foundation has helped hundreds of talented male footballers learn the Sky Blue way with more than 30 Academy graduates signing scholarships or professional contracts with the Sydney FC men’s A-League team or elsewhere in Australia or overseas. At the end of 2022, Sydney FC Academy will welcome our first cohort of female footballers and look forward to seeing them thrive in a professional football environment.
Aimed at helping talented young footballers develop into well-rounded individuals and elite athletes, the support comes in the form of:
- Scholarships for identified actors in financial difficulty,
- Specialized equipment used for training or rehabilitation, and
- Health and well-being activities.
All donations, regardless of amount, help support the work of the Foundation and are graciously accepted. To make a tax deductible donation click the button below, you will be directed to our Australian Sports Foundation page where all of our donations are processed. Thank you for your support.
