Five reasons to be at AAMI Park this Thursday

Besart vs City

Western United is set to take on Melbourne City in the biggest non-derby of the year this Good Friday Eve.

Here are five reasons you don’t want to miss out on the highly anticipated fixture between the West and East of Victoria.

Start your Easter off right

It’s the first night of the Easter long-weekend.

What better way to spend it than watching the football at AAMI Park?

Two attacking-minded teams will go head-to-head in a huge A-League clash.

Our first win against City

You don’t want to miss out on our first-ever win against City.

Good Friday Eve could be the night we break our duck and have a statement win in the race for the A-League finals.

We’ve had a number of tight battles in the past that ended in defeat, but now is the time to turn the tables.

Berisha vs Maclaren

Two of the league’s greats going head-to-head.

Maclaren leads the Golden Boot race with 11 goals this season, while Berisha has banged in five of his own.

Maclaren needs just three more to overtake Shane Smeltz in second on the all-time A-League scoring charts. Maclaren, currently on 90 goals still has some catching up to do on Berisha though, who sits top with 140.

Foodbank Charity Round

Food relief organisation Foodbank Victoria together with Western United will provide one blockbuster evening of fundraising and football.

United players will be donning special Foodbank branded home jerseys which will be auctioned off after the match.

There will also be Western United thunder sticks and flags available with all proceeds going to Foodbank Victoria.

Our last game in Victoria for a month

After the City clash, Western United won’t play a fixture in Victoria for over four weeks.

A number of away games plus two home games in Tasmania occupy the club’s April fixture.

United’s next game in Victoria is scheduled for 2 May, so get down to AAMI Park on Good Friday Eve so that you don’t have football withdrawals.
