Sydney FC will get their first hint tomorrow of how successful the high profile signing Italian star Alessandro Del Piero has been.
Tickets go on sale in the morning for their opening match of the season against the Phoenix in Wellington.
Phoenix General Manager David Dome says Del Piero is already creating massive interest in the game.
"There's no doubt about it there's been a huge amount of interest. We've been fielding calls left right and centre from not only people in New Zealand but also in Australia. I think there'll be quite a large travelling contingent actually and I think Del Piero, in terms of his first A-League outing, will draw a huge crowd in Wellington."
The Phoenix and Sydney FC get their seasons underway on October 6.
