Family fun at Brett Emerton’s homecoming match!
The highly anticipated match was postponed after the Glory’s flight out of Perth in early December was cancelled due to a severe electrical storm.
A coup for Campbelltown Sports Stadium, the match is one of five community matches being held in Australia and New Zealand as part of the Hyundai A-League 2011-2012 football season. It is the first time the stadium has hosted an A-League premiership game.
Coinciding with the school holidays, the match will feature a host of fun, free activities for children and their families, including an obstacle course, giant slide and face painting. Children are also invited to bring along their football boots for a kick around on the field after the match.
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr Anoulack Chanthivong, encouraged local residents to show their support and welcome home local soccer star, Brett Emerton.
“This is an exciting opportunity for local families to experience first-class football action close to home, and I urge residents to take advantage of this value-for-money, great community event," Cr Chanthivong said.
“With a host of fun activities for children and their families, the match is also a chance to inspire our future sporting stars by giving them a taste of elite level competition of one of Australia’s most popular sports.”
The game kicks off at 5.30pm, with gates opening at 4pm.
Tickets cost $20 for adults and $8 for children (and concession), and can be purchased online at proticket.com.au
