100 Days until season opener
Today, Friday 21 November, marks 100 days until the NSW Swifts officially get their 2015 campaign underway when they travel to Invercargill to take on the Southern Steel in Round 1 of the ANZ Championship.
The two teams will meet at the newly-refurbished ILT Stadium Southland on Sunday 1 March, and while the Swifts hold a 5-2 advantage over their Kiwi rivals, history shows the Invercargill trip can be a dangerous one.
After two visits to New Zealand’s most southern city the Swifts are yet to post a win with the home side claiming victory in both, including the most recent visit during the 2013 season. However with a new-look roster, including three international representatives with experience playing with Kiwi franchises, the Swifts will be looking to change their fortunes while in the Land of the Long White Cloud.
While the Swifts will open their season with back-to-back New Zealand away games, they’ll be back in front of home fans for Round 3 when the Club hosts the Queensland Firebirds at the Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre (SOPSC) on Sunday 15 March.
If you haven’t already, make sure you mark Wednesday 10 December in your diaries for when SOPSC tickets go on-sale to the general public! Tickets will be available from 10am AEST through the Ticketek website, so make sure you get in early and secure your seat!
