The stage has been set and the draw has officially been released for the 2018 National Premier Leagues NSW Men’s competition with round 1 kicking off on Saturday March 10 with twelve teams going head to head for the right to be crowned Premiers and Champions of NSW’s top tier Men’s competition.
Round 1 will see a number of exciting battles take shape across Sydney, none more so than the 2017 NPL NSW Men’s Grand Final replay when Champions Manly United take on Premiers APIA Leichhardt Tigers at Cromer Park.
That very same evening will also pit the new kids on the block, but a former NSL giant in Marconi Stallions, coached by Peter Tsekenis and Peter Papoythis as they face neighbours Sydney United 58 with former Socceroo star Jason Culina running the ship as the club’s new head coach.
In other matches on the Saturday, Sydney FC will face Hakoah Sydney City East while on Sunday a further three games will take place as the local derby will feature Rockdale City Suns taking on the Sutherland Sharks, the Wollongong Wolves will entertain Blacktown City and finally in yet another classic encounter, Sydney Olympic tackle the Bonnyrigg White Eagles.
The final round of matches has been scheduled for Sunday, August 12 with the NPL Championships Series commencing on the 19th of August and the Grand Final set for Sunday, September 9.
