The venture, a brainchild of Destination NSW and The Star Sydney, is poised to offer fans an unrivalled experience as Australia prepares to clash with the Republic of Ireland on 20 July. The suite, accessible only for two special days, presents a lucky competition winner and their companions with an immersive, once-in-a-lifetime football adventure.

Overlooking the stunning vistas of the Sydney Harbour and its picturesque bridge, the suite’s aesthetic celebrates Australia’s national women’s team with a finesse that will thrill any football enthusiast. The opulent penthouse, spread over two levels, embodies a tasteful blend of sport and luxury. The vibrant green and gold splashes are dominating the suite’s décor, synonymous with Australia’s pride, the Matildas.

A sprawling four-meter-long Matildas scarf graces the suite, accompanied by shelves teeming with football-themed curios and books tracing the illustrious journey of the CommBank Matildas. A beautifully crafted staircase, inscribed with motivational football quotes, spirals down from the master bedroom to an in-suite foosball table, stirring up the competitive spirit in guests.
