The 2019 National Premier Leagues NSW Men’s season will be kicking off with an absolute bang thanks to some mouth-watering opening fixtures to wet the appetite of players and fans across the competition.
All round 1 matches will take place on Sunday 10th of March with 2018 Premiers and Champions Sydney Olympic taking on the Sutherland Sharks with the Blues hoping to keep their momentum on winning back to back silverware at Belmore Sports Ground.
Manly United will be making the massive trek down South as they clash with the Wollongong Wolves while it will be an all out traditional affair at Lambert Park as APIA Leichhardt Tigers entertain Marconi Stallions.
Lily Homes Stadium will play host to a local derby as Blacktown City host newly promoted Mt Druitt Town Rangers while at Hensley Athletic Field, Hakoah Sydney City East tackle the young guns of Sydney FC.
The pick of the round however will be the high octane clash at Sydney United Sports Centre when the Rockdale City Suns face Sydney United 58.
There is set to be a fair bit of feeling in this huge clash but the major talking point will be the return of Panny Nikas. The star midfielder left Edensor Park for Rockdale and will no doubt be wanting to impress his new supporters and teammates against his former club.
