Rovers Aussie Tour CONFIRMED!!!!

The all but confirmed story, is now confirmed!!!!

Blackburn Rovers, along with Rangers FC and AEK Athens ( who replaced Boca Juniors), will be competing against Sydney FC in 3 double header encounters at the Sydney Football Stadium

The games will be held on Sunday, July the 25th, Wednesday July 28th and Saturday July 31st (all Sydney dates). The draw will be provided tomorrow, with Sunday possibly being 2 day games, Wednesday being an evening double header and Saturday up for grabs!

So there you have it, Sas promised to deliver, and here it is!

Looking forward to see the boys for the first time ever!!



EDIT-

Cheers to Garth Friel from Sportinglife for putting this up on the Live transfer link section

0927: Although it's not a transfer line, I'm going to let Tony Sassine's email in due to the fact it mentions Rangers.

He says: "The mighty Blackburn Rovers will be travelling to Sydney, with the 4 team tournament booked in for July 25 through to July 31, with AEK Athens joining Blackburn, Rangers and Sydney FC after Boca Juniors pulled out of the Sydney tour - Good Times!"
