“To see the joy on the faces of fans, majority of fans on the stage, the well wishes out on the stage, it was just great.”
Enthusiastic celebrations followed post match amongst fans and continued into the early morning.
Hotel LA manager Sturat Bensley says the inclusion of Sydney fans made the experience different for fan celebrations.

“The Western Sydney influence was a bit diverse, certainly their crowds are very passionate locals.”
