Central Coast Mariners have announce that football fans around Australia and globally will be able to stream the club’s friendly against Melbourne City from Oakes Oval, Lismore this Sunday LIVE on www.CCMariners.com.au.The Mariners have again teamed up with local Central Coast company, VPA Productions, to provide a live stream option to supporters via the club’s website.
The stream (#LiveFromLismore) will be presented with the on-ground support of Melbourne City FC, as both clubs aim to service and engage with their supporter base in the lead up to Hyundai A-League season ten.
Over 8,000 interested football fans from some 80 countries logged on to the Central Coast Mariners’ last live stream on Wednesday 20 August when the yellow and navy defeated South Coast Wolves 1-0 at WIN Stadium, Wollongong in the Westfield FFA Cup.
With Melbourne City FC’s Westfield FFA Cup live stream for their game against Sydney FC in August also achieving impressive interest, it is hoped that Sunday’s stream will be the Mariners’ biggest and best yet.
Mariners Chief Executive Officer, Mr Bruce Stalder, said that the club is excited by the chance to take the game and the city of Lismore into the homes of football fans around the world.
“Over 5,000 supporters are expected to be at Oakes Oval on Sunday for our friendly against Melbourne City, and if that’s the case it would be a truly tremendous response from the people of Lismore and the spectacular Far North Coast,” Stalder said. “With our live stream the game will be accessible to people all around the globe, so anyone who can’t physically be at Oakes Oval can still be part of the action.”
“We envisage live streams becoming a regular part of our pre-seasons if and when possible, and will continue to look for innovative ways to deliver content to our supporters for the good of the game, as well as the growth and development of our club brand,” he said.
Kick-off between Central Coast Mariners and Melbourne City from Oakes Oval in Lismore is at 2:30pm. #LiveFromLismore will commence approximately ten minutes earlier.
