AFC Asian Cup contender Korea Republic have chosen our campus as their base to prepare for their AFC Asian Cup tilt in January.
“Sport has been at the heart of our University since it was founded 50 years ago,” said Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Students and Registrar) Deidre Anderson. “Recently we have hosted the All Blacks and Socceroos, and Sydney FC have had their home training grounds here for several years now.
“We are delighted to welcome the Korean Football Association to our sporting community!”
The team will arrive on 27 December and train on our grounds until 6 January, when they will head to Canberra for their first two Asian Cup games against Oman on 10 January and Kuwait on 13 January.
