We’re back at home this Friday night at Suncorp Stadium in a mouthwatering State v State clash against Sydney FC.
BRFC is a Club for all of Queensland & this weekend for the first time in Hyundai A-League Season 2018/19, we’re trading the orange & representing the whole State in maroon.
It’s the third season in a row the Club will sport maroon in a home fixture against Sydney FC, as sky blue once again takes on maroon at Suncorp Stadium.
Captain & proud Queenslander Matt Mckay says it will be a proud occasion to once again play on Suncorp Stadium in the maroon strip.
“I’m a proud Queenslander so to have this as our third strip is pretty cool and to wear it when we’re playing Sydney FC – Queensland vs New South Wales, it’s a great touch and we’ll be channelling all that Queensland spirit throughout the team this Friday night," McKay said.
The Roar head into Friday’s clash looking to make it back-to-back wins against the Sky Blues, having run out 2-1 winners over Sydney FC when the sides met at Suncorp Stadium earlier this season.
McKay says that that Queensland fighting spirit had been a key component to the Roar's success throughout the years.
“It’s come through in the Brisbane Roar as well, the never-say-die attitude where you can win a game late on or come from a goal behind to equalise and that’s part of what’s made our club so great and of course the state," McKay continued.
