The President and Board of South Melbourne FC, wish to thank everyone who made yesterday’s match at BJS a fantastic and historic event.
Fans of both sides can be proud that their collective efforts created a VPL record attendance.
In years to come, you can proudly tell your family and friends that I was at BJS when SMFC and Heidelberg played for the first time in a decade, in front of a bumper crowd.
To you all, we say thank you.
The SMFC family worked tirelessly through out the day, and you have our eternal gratitude.
It is the great volunteers, that make our club Australia’s finest.
While it was a fantastic event, we recognise that the day was not without its teething problems.
We wish to remind you that this is a new board and that yesterday was the first time that many in the administration had been charged with such a massive task.
We recognise there were first up problems and delays.
But we are committed to working through these issues, to make your match day experience at BJS, a more enjoyable one.
Your patronage yesterday was a great first step, in this new Vodafone VPL season.
We could not have done it, without the support of both sets of fans and teams.
Again, we thank you.
But the hard work and effort doesn’t stop here. The blue and white will be out in force again this Sunday, when we play St Albans Saints.
We urge you to turn out in numbers and show everyone what SMFC is all about.
It is only with your continued support, that our club can maintain it’s proud history and tradition of excellence.
See you at the football,
The Board of the SMFC
