Western United is set to return to Morshead Park in Ballarat for yet more historic moments as the Green and Black’s Liberty A-League Women team prepares for its first competitive matches in the region.
Two games in a matter of five days will entertain the Ballarat faithful as Mark Torcaso’s table-topping women take on Perth Glory on Saturday February 4 before backing up against Newcastle Jets on Wednesday February 8.
The team played its first official friendly against Melbourne Victory at Morshead Park and will return to the ground for two big games as it looks to continue its stellar form in the Liberty A-League.
The Ballarat community has already shown its support for United’s inaugural women’s team and will come out in full force to push the girls over the line.
Morshead Park is easy to get to for fans driving and intending to catch public transport, making for the perfect day out to watch elite women’s football.
There is plenty of street parking in surrounding side streets around Morshead Park. Fans are urged to ensure they check any parking restrictions, including timed restrictions and no-standing zones, before parking.
Being situated among residential streets, there will be ample room for match goers to find a spot within close proximity to the ground.
As for public transport, Morshead Park falls immediately in line with two local bus routes in Ballarat, being the 24 and 25 buses.
Both these routes stop directly outside the ground on Pleasant Street South, taking fans right onto the doorstep of the action. The 22 bus route also stops just a short walk away on Skipton Street.
V-Line trains from the likes of Tarneit and Caroline Springs in the West and from the CBD take little over an hour and a half to arrive at Ballarat Railway Station. That is just a short walk away from the aforementioned 25 bus route which will take fans right to Morshead Park.
Head to the PTV website to plan your public transport journey and get ready to cheer on the girls in Green and Black in two huge matches coming up.
