That is the call from SMFC for this Sunday’s VPL season opener against old foes Heidelberg United.
With a bumper crowd anticipated, fans of both sides are encouraged to arrive early to ensure they do not face delays getting inside to see this much anticipated match.
Patrons are also reminded that construction works at the neighbouring Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre (MSAC) have severely reduced the capacity of parking in the area and as such the SMFC recommends the use of public transport to and from the match.
“The last thing you want on such a big day is to spend an hour looking for a spot, then getting to the ground and lining up for a ticket and missing the kick off”, says SMFC President George Donikian, “so jump on the train or tram and get to Bob Jane Stadium nice and early”.
Gates will open at 2pm and all the stadiums amenities, including the famous ‘Champion’s Bar’ will be open well in advance of the 6pm kick off, so grab your friends and get to the football early!!
