SACC YP Sydney Event 23 Sept – Football celebrations continue!
September 23 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm- Free
During the FIFA Womens World Cup we organised a number of SACC YP catch-ups together with the Swedish community to watch the games in Sydney CBD at Cheers Bar and in Manly at the Wharf Bar. It was a huge success with hundreds of Australian Swedes gathered and creating two massive yellow walls on both sides of the bridge, cheering and celebrating passionately. Now that the World Cup dust has finally settled, the women certainly delivered on their promises and hosted a medal celebration on home turf (at least for us Australian-Swedes), and what a celebration it was!
After a somewhat disappointing loss to the Spanish team, which unfortunately cost us Sweden’s first shot at gold, the women at least managed to run circles around “the Matildas” and not only secure the bronze medal but also clinch the top spot in the FIFA world rankings.
We believe this is certainly worth celebrating. Therefore, in our capacity as the Swedish-Australian Chamber of Commerce’s Young Professional division, we will be gathering at the Garden Bar at the Paragon Hotel in Circular Quay on Saturday, September 23rd at 6:00 PM.
Date: Saturday 23 September
Time: 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Location: Garden Bar at the Paragon Hotel in Circular Quay, 1 Loftus St, Sydney NSW 2000
No cost attached to this event, but please register so we can keep track of numbers. Drinks at bar prices.
P.S. Sweden is actually facing Spain in a friendly match later in the night, so for those of you eager for a rematch, this is your chance to dig out your Swedish colors and come together again. The match will be shown at Cheers, and the gathering for this match is at 2:00 am.
Will we see you on the 23rd?
Cheers from SACC YP
