A-League says Sunday’s grand final a sellout

The A-League said Wednesday all tickets for Sunday’s grand final

between the Western Sydney Wanderers and the Central Coast Mariners

have been sold or allocated for the match in the 45,500-capacity

Sydney Football Stadium.

The Wanderers, who finished first and are trying to win the

league title in their inaugural season, will be led by former

Japanese international Shinji Ono, one of three high-profile

marquee signings this season in the A-League.

The other two couldn’t get their teams into the playoffs.

Former Juventus and Italy striker Alessandro Del Piero played

with Sydney FC, which just missed a playoff spot on goal difference

and finished seventh. Ex-England international Emile Heskey’s

Newcastle Jets were a point behind in eighth.

Del Piero, Heskey and Ono will return next season after signing

new contracts.
