Victory continues to wow Corporate Melbourne
Over 750 of Melbourne’s corporate elite gathered at Crown Palladium today for Melbourne Victory’s 2009/10 season launch.
Proudly showing off new sponsors Intralot and La Ionica as well another 52 Melbourne and National businesses who have committed to sponsorsing Victory, Chairman Geoof Lord urged football fans to get behind them and buy season memberships.
Already 15,000 fans have responded to put Victory on the path to reaching their target of 25,000 members. That figure would put Victory streets ahead of any A-League team and challenge some established AFL clubs.
Ernie Merrick addressed the gathering about preparations for the coming season and then showed off the 20 plus players to their adoring supporters.
Merrick made special mention of veteran Tommy Pondeljak as a player who was shining in pre-season and looking fitter than ever and pushing the young players all the way.
Merrick was delighted to report that there are no players carrying injuries so there will be a full roster pushing for the 11 starting positions against Central Coast Mariners next Thursday at Etihad Stadium.
