The Melbourne Victory and Sydney FC players will attend a Grand Final Fan Day at Birrarung Marr on Saturday afternoon as the build up to the Hyundai A-League 2015 Grand Final enters its final three days.
Grand Final Fan day gives fans the opportunity to get up close and personal with their heroes from Melbourne Victory and Sydney FC as part of a three-hour fan festival, to be held adjacent to Federation Square in Melbourne.
Grand Final Fan Day will take place from 1pm to 4pm on Saturday afternoon with Melbourne Victory players in attendance from 1pm to 1.45pm and Sydney FC players taking the stage from 2.15pm to 3pm.
Players will sign autographs and the Hyundai A-League Championship Trophy will also be in attendance for fans to have their photo taken with Australian Football’s Holy Grail.
Hosted by Fox Sports’ Tara Rushton, Grand Final Fan Day will also include a football panel involving former players from both clubs and Fox Sports personalities Mark Bosnich and Robbie Slater as well as activities for the kids.
“The Hyundai A-League Grand Final is one of Australian sports landmark days and we are pleased to be able to expand the fan experience beyond the match to give fans a more meaningful experience,” said FFA CEO David Gallop.
“The Grand Final fan festival gives fans the opportunity to meet their heroes the day before football’s biggest day as both Melbourne Victory and Sydney FC players meets the fans.”
