Family fun activities to greet Western United fans in Ballarat

Western United Mars Stadium Ballarat

Western United is set to return to its home in Ballarat with a clash against Newcastle Jets on March 5, and there will be a host of family friendly activities to enjoy around the match.

Gate 1 at Mars Stadium will have all the action with face painting and Western United merchandise available for fans to deck themselves out in Green and Black ahead of the game.

There will also be roaming entertainment around the outside of the stadium before the match, including drummers and hula hoopers to set the tone for an exciting day out before the opportunity to watch elite men’s football in Ballarat.

Inside the ground there will be giveaways of Western United thundersticks to help turn the noise up in the stands, and the first 250 patrons to enter the arena will receive a free Maccas McCafé Coffee voucher.

Western United and 61 Design’s half-time Kick to Win competition has been a source of entertainment at every United home match this season, and the Ballarat faithful will help to take it to another level.

Brand new partner Haymes Paint will team up with 61 Design to increase the potential winnings for one lucky fan that gets chosen to take the kick at half-time.

If that one fan can find the back of the net with a kick from 61 metres out, Haymes will add a $1,000 voucher on top of the original $1,061 cash prize from 61 Design. If the first shot is a miss and a second attempt is needed, then Haymes will add to the $61 cash prize with a $200 voucher.

The giveaways will continue post-match if Western United is able to get itself the win on the pitch, with every fan in attendance to receive a free Big Mac voucher.

Western United has maintained its place at the top of the Isuzu UTE A-League Men for multiple weeks in a row and will provide an entertaining spectacle on the pitch as the side chases another big three points ahead of the run-in to finals football.

With things to do for every member of the family from the beginning of the day right until after the final whistle, this is a special opportunity for a day out to watch the A-League Men’s top side do battle in a crucial match. Book your tickets now.

The Ballarat Superpass is also on sale, granting access to both Mars Stadium matches and a host of other benefits.
