Kids Go Free!

Western United is excited to welcome kids to every single home game for free this season. Young people have been challenged by the pandemic, particularly in football, and the Club is proud to encourage the future fans of the Green and Black to bring their families to the stadium.

Kids under 12 will go free, while family tickets are available for only the price of two adult tickets throughout the campaign.

Christmas Party Atmosphere

With this being United’s final home match before Christmas, and indeed before the turn of the year, the Club is celebrating the festive season with a Christmas party atmosphere at the match on Friday.

There will be special visits from roaming elves on the concourse and on the pitch handing out special Western United giveaways and presents to fans in the arena, as well as other roaming entertainment throughout the stadium pre-match.

Christmas tunes will ring out across AAMI Park to spark up the mood, while fans can get face paint at Gate 7 to show their Western United colours and their Christmas spirit for the match.

Calder United

Western United is continually proud of the partnership it has forged with Calder United in the NPLW, and this weekend is a special occasion for the women’s side.

Calder has earned its place in the Nike FC Cup Final against South Melbourne, set to kick off at 4pm on Sunday December 19 at CB Smith Reserve.

Fans will hear from a Calder United representative with an on-pitch Q&A and members of the squad will hand out footballs to fans around the ground.

Tickets are free for the Grand Final but do need to be booked. The Western Service Crew will be in attendance, and all Western United members and fans are encouraged to cheer on Calder United as it goes in search of a fantastic fourth straight Nike FC Cup success.
