VIDEO | Sydney Derby Days: Creating history in Australia

A derby is an event all by itself where emotions trump logic, where the heart believes what the brain is afraid to and where the lungs seemingly double in capacity as the fans make their presence felt. The best derbies in the World also have an extra edge to them. It isn’t just about local pride and bragging rights but instead there is more often than not a cultural or historical background that spills onto the pitch. If one considers sport to be a reflection of society, then derby days serve to sharpen the focus of the image. For proof, just look at the Sydney derby.

What the derby lacks in history, it makes up for in significance as it symbolizes the divide between Western Sydney and the rest of the City. The fact that the Wanderers have achieved continental success already in their short history only stokes the fire of the rivalry. Looking at the bigger picture, it is great for Australian football to have such a showpiece occasion with each game augmenting the football culture that is already in place.

YouTube channel, Copa90, has provided this excellent video that looks at Australian football’s fiercest rivalry. Well worth a watch for any football fan!
