South Melbourne FC is proud about having passionate supporters of all ages and children are no exception! Young people are the future of every club and South has been blessed with excellent youth programs and exceptional players that consistently achieve results of the highest standard. The club appreciates our younger supporters and acknowledges that they are an important part of the South Melbourne family. As a result, SMFC is working hard to offer those under 16 years of age incentives to sign up for a junior membership in season 2007.
Sunday’s (25th February 2007) FREE Family Fun Day at Bob Jane Stadium is the first opportunity for children to sign up for a junior membership. Junior memberships are also free and the club encourages as many young South Melbourne supporters to sign up as possible. Friends and family are more than welcome to attend the family day and sign up to be a part of the ever-growing SMFC family too!
A junior membership enables quick and easy access to every single South Melbourne home game in 2007. In addition, the member will receive an invitation to a clinic held on the famous Bob Jane Stadium pitch, led by South’s Victorian Championship winning players.
Another exciting opportunity that junior members can expect this year is an entry into a draw to be the team mascot for a home game. This will allow the lucky recipient the opportunity to:
* Spend some time in the South changing rooms before the game, soaking up the atmosphere and hearing coach John Anastasiadis’ team talk;
* Lead the team out onto the pitch with captain Dean Anastasiadis;
* Be a part of the team photo and receive a copy signed by every player!
* Flip the coin to start the match between Dean and the opposition captain;
* Spend the match on the SMFC bench on the sidelines.
Every entry into the Team Mascot draw will also be in the running to be ball boys/girls at SMFC home games.
Junior members are encouraged to sign up before Round 1 for the chance to win one of these once-in-a-lifetime opportunities when SMFC kicks off their 2007 season against traditional rivals Heidelberg United on Sunday March 4.
For more information on junior memberships please contact George on 0423 906 411.
Conditions: Junior Members must be under the age of 16 as at 1st January, 2007
