Central Coast Mariners to stage home games in Canberra
Central Coast Mariners will hold home games in the nation’s capital this season.
Canberra will play host to two A-League games, in rounds 5 and 13 of the 2009/10 competition.
“We must firstly recognise the vision and foresight of Football Federation Australia, the ACT Government and Capital Football, for seizing this unique opportunity to host these two Hyundai A-League games,” said Mariners executive chairman Lyall Gorman.
“It also gives the A-League for Canberra bid supporters the perfect chance to get behind the game, and further strengthen our support of a truly national competition, with the imminent announcement of the Hyundai A-League’s successful 12th franchise.”
