I would like to extend an invitation to all residents of the City of Port Phillip and to all the users of Albert Park, to come down and join South Melbourne FC celebrate our annual Community Day.
Bob Jane Stadium is the venue and Sunday July 17 is the date, when SMFC takes on the Green Gully Cavaliers in a Round 22 fixture of the Vodafone Premier league.
For nearly half a century, South Melbourne FC has been a part of the Albert Park Precinct. First we were at Middle Park, then in 1995 with the return of the Grand Prix to Melbourne we moved to our current site which was the old Lakeside Oval.
Not only have we proven over nearly 50 years that we are one of the most successful football Clubs in the country, but we are also one of the proudest, having competed against the likes of World giants Manchester United and Vasco da Gama at the inaugural FIFA World Club Championships, which were held in Brazil, in 2000.
South Melbourne is creating a new era of excitement at Bob Jane Stadium, competing in the Victorian Premier League competition.
After 20 Rounds, the Club currently sits in 3rd spot on the ladder and is looking to gather itself over the final 7 weeks to make a final assault on the title.
Come and show your support for your local Club and be part of the special Community Day festivities at Bob Jane Stadium.
