Socceroos prepare for play-off

Football Federation Australia

The Caltex Socceroos will play Honduras in Honduras for the first leg of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Intercontinental Play-off (CONCACAF-Asian Zone) on Friday, November 10, 2017 (local time), with the second leg to be played at Stadium Australia in Sydney on Wednesday, November 15, 2017.

The second leg in Sydney will kick-off at 8pm (AEDT), however Football Federation Australia (FFA) has yet to receive confirmation regarding the match venue or kick-off time in Honduras.

FFA Chief Executive Officer David Gallop called upon all Australian sports fans to show their support for the Caltex Socceroos for the most important knock-out match since Australia defeated Uruguay at the same venue on November 16, 2005.

“Following last week’s dramatic play-off victory over Syria it comes down to these last two matches to see who will get the final berth at the 2018 FIFA World Cup,” said Gallop.

“There hasn’t been a more important match played in Australia since our last Intercontinental Play-off against Uruguay 12 years ago, and for all of us who were there it was truly a very special moment in Australian sporting history.”

“With a place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia at stake we’re calling on all football and sports fans to rally behind the Caltex Socceroos as they aim to qualify for their fourth successive FIFA World Cup.”

Tickets will go on sale to the Football Family from 12pm (AEDT) tomorrow (Monday, October 16), with the general public tickets on-sale from 12pm (AEDT) Thursday, October 19. To purchase tickets, please visit www.socceroos.com.au/tickets for more information.

Both matches will be broadcast live on FOX SPORTS and the Nine Network.
