The FIFA Women’s World Cup may be reaching its denouement with the Final on Sunday 20 August at Stadium Australia, but the global game never rests. Next on the agenda is the Liberty A-League and YOUR club needs YOUR support now more than ever before.
We all witnessed the amazing scenes nationwide as the Matildas captured the hearts and caught the imagination of the Australian public like never before. Allegiances, club or even sporting codes, were thrust to one side as the community got behind the team in their push for glory.
Imagine those scenes at football matches around the country. Imagine being part of that collective, willing on your team, wearing your club colours with as much pride as you did wearing the green and gold of our glorious trailblazers on the international stage.
Canberra United are YOUR team. We have been based in Canberra since the formation of the old W-League, as it was named, back in the inaugural 2008/09 season. We have had our ups and downs. Football, as you are aware, does this to you.
It’s a roller-coaster of emotion, from the moment you wake on matchday, to walking through the gates at McKellar Park, to the first shrill blast of the referee’s whistle. The unfolding ninety minutes of drama, unscripted, raw, the sighs of a missed chance, the sheer elation and raucous approval of a home team goal.
It’s what we live for. It’s why we love OUR club. It’s why we love OUR game.
This season, Canberra United Memberships offer more than before. Eleven home matches, the rest of the competition aiming to storm fortress McKellar and lower OUR colours. Our traditional foes, Sydney FC, Western Sydney Wanderers, Melbourne City, Adelaide United, Newcastle Jets, and Melbourne Victory, will all be visiting the National Capital.
Perth Glory and Brisbane Roar will as well. Remember them? They remember us, as our two Grand Final triumphs attest. Last season’s surprise package, Western United, and our overseas visitors from Wellington Phoenix will be in town, and we welcome back the Central Coast Mariners. Thanks for Michelle Heyman guys, I’m sure she will go easy on you…….
What’s not to love? It’s time to stand-up and be counted. It’s time to wear the green of YOUR city and YOUR club. Sign for United today and be part of something unique.
