Macarthur FC and Sydney FC will play for the new Charity Cup when they meet at Campbelltown in a round 25 A-League fixture on Saturday April 20.

According to the Bulls announcement this will become an annual event.

The cup trophy will be up for grabs at the Macarthur FC and Sydney FC match at Campbelltown Stadium during the A-League season.

The inaugural Charity Cup match will be played in support of the Sony Foundation, the charitable arm of the Sony group of companies that supports young people in need.

In the meantime, the Bulls are preparing for their vital Round 22 match against the Western Sydney Wanderers at Campbelltown Stadium on Easter Monday, April 1.

With just four regular seasons round remaining, the Bulls are third on the ladder, while the Wanderers are running sixth.

With both sides eyeing finals football, the three points up for grabs are vital.

The match which will kick off at 3pm, will be the 50th the Bulls will have played at Campbelltown Stadium in the A-League.

In another looming milestone, club captain Ulises Dávila (99) is one away from his 100th starting appearance in the A-League.

Western Sydney Wanderers FC have only lost one of their last six A-League Men matches against Macarthur FC (W3 D2).

However that 3-4 defeat will be fresh in their minds because it happened just last month (February).

On the other hand, Macarthur have won only two of their last seven A-League games at Campbelltown Stadium (D2 L3).

They will also be keen to avoid back-to-back defeats at the venue for the first time since December 2022 after losing 0-3 to Central Coast Mariners in their last game there.
