Central Coast Mariners can today announce that the club’s Round 16 clash against Adelaide United will now be played at Gosford’s Central Coast Stadium.
The Saturday 7 February fixture was originally scheduled to be played at Brookvale Oval in the heart of the Manly Warringah Football Association – an area home to over 16,000 registered participants of the world’s favourite sport.
However the game will now revert back to the home of the Mariners after Football Federation Australia (FFA) management and the Club agreed that the Brookvale Oval surface would not be in an adequate condition for play by early February.
Warringah Council has taken all possible steps to ensure that the game would proceed as planned, however the current timelines to ready the field of play to strict Hyundai A-League standards following the recent partial laying of a fresh Brookvale Oval surface are now too tight.
Central Coast Mariners wish to thank Warringah Council for their efforts and interest in hosting a Hyundai A-League match in their region, and broadening the reach of elite Australian football.
Tickets for the fixture against Adelaide United at Central Coast Stadium will go on sale this week, with Mariners Members to receive a special entry price of only $10 to retain their regular seats at the Mariners’ idyllic bayside arena.
Please note that 11 of the Club’s 13 matches were factored into the Club’s 2014/15 full-season Membership packages. However with the round 16 game reverting back to Central Coast Stadium, 12 fixtures will now be played at the venue.
