Canberra FC meet Canberra Olympic in the PlayStation 4® NPL Capital Football 2015 Grand Final at McKellar Park on Sunday as the winter season in Canberra draws to a conclusion.
This will be the third time in five seasons that this match-up will decide the fate of the Grand Final trophy and with the previous two encounters being memorable occasions, the scene is set for 2015 to be the ultimate showdown.
Indeed, this is the fourth time in the history of ACT football that teams representing Canberra FC and Olympic have made the big dance with the current standing at two wins a piece so something will have to give on the weekend. The pair first met back in the 1997 showdown when Olympic won 4-0 before Canberra Deakin gained revenge in 2003. The epic 2011 clash, which FC won remarkably 8-5, is still fondly recalled as is the brace from Robbie Schroder which decided the 2013 version.
Ironically, considering that FC were league champions and Olympic finished fifth (making the finals because of the FFA COE ineligibility), the League Champions have only gained one point from their pair of clashes with Olympic, suggesting that Frank Cachia and his team enjoy the challenge put down by their rivals. In fact FC has only won once in the last five encounters between the clubs since the thirteen-goal Final thriller, that in the 2014 Minor Semi-Final.
