Football Federation Australia (FFA) has announced that the PlayStation®4 National Premier Leagues 2014 Grand Final between Bonnyrigg White Eagles and MetroStars SC will be held this weekend in Sydney.
Announced in early September, PlayStation 4 is the inaugural official naming rights partner of the National Premier Leagues. The new sponsorship agreement with PlayStation 4 will see the semi-professional member federation-based competitions in Australian football branded as the PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues up until at least the end of the National Premier Leagues 2017 Finals Series and reflects the Sony group's support of football at national and international levels.
The 2014 Grand Final between Bonnyrigg White Eagles and MetroStars SC will be held this Saturday, 4th October 2014 at Lambert Park in Leichhardt NSW, kicking off at 4:00pm AEST.
Bonnyrigg White Eagles earned the right to host the decider in their home state after accumulating a higher number of points than MetroStars SC across their two matches in regards to the points system utilised to determine home teams throughout the PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues Finals Series.
Both sides came off narrow victories in the PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues Semi Finals. Bonnyrigg needed a Robbie Younis goal to defeat Palm Beach Sharks 1-0 while MetroStars scored a stunning 2-1 away win over South Melbourne FC at Lakeside Stadium.
Bonnyrigg will be attempting to become the second Football NSW club to be crowned PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues Champions after Sydney United 58 FC won the inaugural edition of the competition last year. For MetroStars, it would be a fairy tale finish to a year in which they were the standout team in PlayStation National Premier Leagues South Australia, and would go some way to making up for their loss in their local Grand Final.
Furthermore, the winner on Saturday will book a spot in the Round of 32 of next year's Westfield FFA Cup.
Gates at Lambert Park will open at 3:00pm and tickets will be available at the venue. The match will also be streamed online at www.nationalpremierleagues.com.au.
