South Melbourne FC is pleased to announce that the 50th Year Anniversary Gala Ball is nearing upon a complete sell-out, with only a couple of tables remaining to be sold.
With over 600 guests in attendance, the club urges all SMFC fans and members to book a seat to this historic event to avoid the disappointment of missing out. The deadline for ticket sales is Friday October 30th, with the event expected to completely sell-out in the next couple of days.
Should the tickets sell-out, the club will also be compiling a waiting list of those who are still interested in attending, with the view that these people will be given a chance to purchase tickets should any further room be found.
This once-in-a-lifetime event will focus on all eras of the club’s history, and the players who took to the field throughout them, including the merger between Hellenic, Yarra Park and South Melbourne United in 1959, the successful state league campaigns of the 1960s and ’70s, the history of the club in the National Soccer League and, of course, representing Australia proudly on the world stage at the 2000 World Club Championships.
Many former players, sponsors, administrators and volunteers who have been associated with the club throughout its enviable history have already confirmed their attendance to reminisce about their experiences with the famous Blue and Whites.
As part of the night, the club will also showcase a vast array of footage that has never been released to the public.
Don’t miss out and book your seat today before it’s too late.
