Western United fan guide for Semi-Final second leg

Western United Fans

Western United will approach the Semi-Final second leg against Melbourne Victory on Saturday night knowing a win could place the side in its first ever A-League Men Grand Final.

The Green and Black fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat in a tight first leg on Tuesday night and will return to AAMI Park full of confidence for the return fixture.

Western United fans will group together in the away area behind the South End goal, Geelong-based supporters can board a shuttle bus for the match and there will be plenty more for the Green and Black family to enjoy on match day.

Western United fans to pack out Bays 14 and 15

As this return leg is Melbourne Victory’s home fixture, Western United’s fan allocation has been placed at the South End of the stadium.

The Club is directing all Western United supporters to Bays 14 and 15 where the Western Service Crew will be setting up to bring the noise throughout the match.

Active Supporters new and existing will fill that end and paint it in Green and Black with flags and banners to be provided, the drums and megaphone will be in full force to drive the players on the pitch.

The representation of Green and Black in the stands will help spur the team on to a positive performance and an ideal result to reach the showpiece game on May 28.

All aboard the Geelong shuttle bus

The shuttle bus service from Geelong to AAMI Park will return once again for Western United’s Finals action, having already been in place for last weekend’s Elimination Final and the Semi-Final first leg.

The bus will depart from Gate 13 at GMHBA Stadium at 2:30pm sharp on Saturday, so fans should arrive at 2:15pm at the latest to ensure they are on time and ready to get on the coach.

The journey home will begin from the drop-off point at AAMI Park 30 minutes after the end of the match, which could go to extra-time or a penalty shootout if the aggregate score is level after 90 or 120 minutes.

Any fans wishing to utilise the bus service must email lisa.pacher@westernmelbourne.com with the number of adults and children that they will have on board. Final spots are still available, so RSVP as quickly as you can to secure one of the last seats on the bus.

All passengers must wear a facemask for the entire duration of the journey and must also provide proof of double-vaccinated status against COVID-19 or of a valid medical exemption.
