Exclusive- Rovers to Tour Down Under!!!

Exclusive- Rovers to Tour Down Under!!!

With only the finalisation of the finer details remaining, it looks like Australian Outfit, Sydney FC, will host a pre-season international tournament against Boca Juniors, Rangers and the mighty Blackburn Rovers.

Details are to be finalised, however speculation is that the mini tournament will take place towards the back end of July, as Sydney FC has booked the Sydney Football Stadium on 4 seperate days.

With the World Cup due to be completed, it looks like all teams would have their international stars available, hopefully filling the 40k capacity stadium.

It could prove to provide a financial windfall for Blackburn, with Brett Emerton and Vince Grella leading the merchandising sales for the club.

What makes this sweeter is that all the games will be played in Sydney!!!!! Go you good thing!!!

Everton will also visit Australia, with their pre-season tour beginning early July
