Perth Glory-s final home game of the season against Adelaide United on Saturday, March 30 will be a day to remember.
To celebrate the opening of the fully redeveloped nib Stadium, Perth Glory is proud to offer free tickets to Football West Junior League players, parents and officials.
The special occasion also acknowledges the role local football has played in Perth Glory-s history, and through Football West, 10,000 thousand complimentary tickets will be distributed.
“This is just a small way to say thanks to the WA Football family,” Perth Glory Chairman Tony Sage said.
“Grassroots Football is so important, and we-d love to fill nib Stadium on March 30 by giving all young footballers a lasting memory.
“Additionally, developing West Australian talent is the future of Perth Glory. I have been thrilled, that we have recently signed Daniel De Silva, Matthew Davies, Riley Woodcock and Jack Clisby on senior deals and these players will inspire the next generation of young stars.”
An email has already been sent to clubs offering the free-ticket deal and seeking a commitment that each allocation will be used or quickly returned to Football West for redistribution.
Football West chief executive Peter Hugg urged fans to show their support for the initiative, which he said was another sign of the increasing co-operation between Perth Glory and Football West.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for our members to get behind the club at a time when Perth Glory have shown a genuine commitment to the WA game,” Hugg said.
“Alistair and his assistant, Gareth, have done a great job in the few weeks since they took over and the team could still be fighting for a place in the finals, come March 30.
“We-re aiming to take a high-resolution photograph of the many faces in the stand on the night, so this is a real chance for people to be part of history.
“There-ll be a fantastic new stand for fans to sit in and there-s a real sense of this being the start of a new and prosperous time for WA football.”
Sage is also encouraging all fans to wear their local club colours to the match.
“It would be great to see a stand filled with local players, parents and fans flying the flag for the particular club they are involved in,” he said. “We-d just like them to lend us their voices and cheer, shout and sing for us against Adelaide.
“This initiative is about celebrating every aspect of WA football from the volunteers, juniors and amateurs to the men and women in the State Leagues and, of course, Perth Glory.”
