Brisbane Roar welcomes Stefan Scepovic to the Isuzu UTE A-League  

Brisbane Roar is excited to welcome highly experienced Serbian striker Stefan Scepovic, joining the club from AEL Limassol in Cyprus.  

Scepovic has represented clubs in Serbia, Italy, Belgium, Israel, Spain, Scotland, Hungary, Poland, Japan and Cyprus.  

The 33-year-old international has had extensive experience across Europe and Asia with the likes of Sampdoria, Club Brugge, Sporting Gijón, Celtic, Getafe, and Malaga. 

Scepovic began his career in 2007 when he began playing for Partizan in Serbia, before going on to make over 350 competitive football appearances, scoring over 100 goals and over 30 assists to date.  

Scepovic made his international debut in 2012 at 22 years of age and went on to play for Serbia eight times scoring once in the World Cup qualifying stages.  

From 2014 – 2016, Scepovic played for Celtic in the SPL where he won both the Scottish Premiership and Scottish League Cup. 

“I’m looking forward to the challenge. I will try to help the team as much as possible, so if we can achieve something together, that will be something nice”, Scepovic said.  

After passing the halfway mark in the season, Brisbane are looking to add points and improve their ladder positioning in the hopes of reaching a final six spot in the Isuzu UTE A-League.  

Scepovic joins the Roar in a time that the Roar need goals, and the squad will be looking to the Serbian to help contribute to their goal tally for the remainder of this season. 

“I think all strikers, we live for goals, and goals help teams to win.”

“As a team we attack together, we defend together so in the end all of us have a job on the pitch and if we play as one, I think we will have success,” Scepovic said.  

“My first impression of this club is that everyone is very nice, it’s been a warm welcome from everyone at the club and now I am focused on finishing the season with the club and from there let’s see.” 

The Serbian international will be joining the Roar on a contract until the end of the current Isuzu UTE A-League season. 

Scepovic will wear the no. 22 shirt for Brisbane Roar.
