    Sydney were looking for their third Grand Final victory having won the big prize in 2006 and 2010 but were beaten 3-0 in the final by regular-season champions ('Premiers') Melbourne Victory on Sunday, May 17.

    The 'Sky Blues' finished runners-up in the A-League with Austrian international striker Marc Janko netting 16 league goals, a club record.

    Established in 2004, Sydney FC are the most successful club in the history of the Hyundai A-League, having won 10 trophies across the Hyundai A-League, the Westfield W-League and Foxtel National Youth League, participating in seven of the 10 A-League end-of-season finals series, being crowned Champions twice and Premiers on one occasion.

    Many of the world’s greatest players have donned the Sky Blue shirt, including former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke, Brazilian midfielder Juninho and all-time Italian legend Alessandro Del Piero.
