Children go for free | Brimbank & Northwest
Children under 12 will continue to attend Western United home games for free this A-League season.
Following its successful implementation last season, United announced that children will be free to all home games.
Western United CEO Chris Pehlivanis said the support of the club’s young fans is crucial now and will continue to be so in the future.
“We are a family club. We want children to feel welcome at our games and we want them to have fun and feel that they are part of our family, of our community, ”he said.
“I am so proud of the club for leading this initiative. Our young supporters are the future of our club and will be the future of football across the country.
“Providing a positive experience for families and children is of great importance to us, and I can’t wait to see the kids out west wearing the green and black colors on game day this season. “
Children under 12 will be entitled to one free ticket in the general admission category to each home game this season, while family packages in categories A and B will only equal the cost of two adult tickets.
The announcement comes as capacity for United’s opener against Melbourne Victory at GMHBA in Geelong has been increased.
After initially being set at 25% of its capacity, the club announced last week that the stadium could be filled to 50%.
Pehlivanis said the result was a welcome boost to kick off the season and called on all Western United fans to show their colors on the pitch.
“It’s fantastic that Victoria is opening up again and I am delighted that we were able to work with the Kardinia Park Stadium Trust to give more fans the chance to enjoy the football live,” he said.
“It’s been a long time without our wonderful fans in the stadium and I know the whole club can’t wait to welcome them again.”
