Western United Head Coach John Aloisi will headline a blockbuster Finals edition of The Green Room on FNR on Wednesday night.

The Green and Black’s very own club-specific show has run on FNR Football Nation Radio throughout the season and will continue through the Isuzu UTE A-League Men Finals.

Aloisi sat down for a pre-recorded interview during the week where he spoke about United’s record-breaking 2021/22 regular season and previewed Saturday’s Elimination Final against Wellington Phoenix.

The match is set to be Western United’s first ever home Final with fans in attendance and is sure to be a landmark occasion for the Club.

United’s star midfielder Neil Kilkenny will kick off the show with a live in-studio interview to give his perspective on the upcoming post-season.

Kilkenny, who played 22 times in the A-League Men regular season, has made five Finals appearances across previous seasons including the 2019 Grand Final where his Perth Glory side fell agonisingly short against Sydney FC in a penalty shootout.

The 36-year-old has also witnessed the highs and lows of post-season football in the promotion playoffs in England and will bring a wealth of experience to the United team over the coming weeks.

Another member of the Western United squad that has especially recent experience in this environment is Ben Garuccio, who was a member of Melbourne City’s championship-winning side in 2021.

The United left-back will also appear on The Green Room live in the studio to discuss his excitement ahead of a first Finals campaign in Green and Black.

The 26-year-old enjoyed a stellar 2021/22 campaign, putting in some career-best form over a season where he racked up two goals and six assists – the highest total of any defender in the league.

Tune in live from 7pm on Western United’s Facebook page and on FNR’s channels on Twitter and Twitch and get all the insight into the upcoming Finals campaign.

Tickets to the Elimination Final are on sale from Wednesday at 3pm for Western United members and 11am on Thursday for the general public. Be sure to book a ticket and show your voice in the stadium to cheer on Western United as the Club aims to make history.
