Four Melbourne Heart FC supporters were the recipients of a ‘money can-t buy- experience when they were selected as the winners of Adriatic Furniture-s Best Seat in the House promotion.
The Gelb family watched Heart-s 1-1 draw with Brisbane Roar from the luxury of an Adriatic Furniture couch stationed beside the Yarraside end at AAMI Park, enabling them to absorb the atmosphere and passion generated from their pitch-side local.
Describing winning the prize as akin to claiming Tattslotto, Mrs Gelb said her and her family felt like ‘royalty’ as they watched the match from the comfort of Melbourne Heart FC red couch.
Where did you make your purchase and what did you purchase?
Adriatic Furniture Moorabbin. Purchased a “Lush” lounge suite for a new home
Was it your first time shopping at Adriatic?
How did you feel winning the tickets, have you ever won anything before?
Thrilled to win as I’ve never won a competition like this before
Was the prize and experience what you expected?
We felt like we had won Tattslotto. We felt like royalty. Samuel (son) even admitted to us he would not mind being the Adriatic Mascot. He liked the shirt.
Was this your first Melbourne Heart FC Game?
Yes, hopefully we can have such great seats everytime….It was a pleasure to represent Adriatic Furniture.
Do you support any other football teams?
We are serious Manchester United Supporters and they also play in red and white.
Do any family members play football?
Our son Samuel plays for Under 11-s for North Caulfield. He is the current goalkeeper so meeting Clint Bolton after the game was a dream come true for him. He also plays Futsal for the Football Technique School of Soccer based in Cheltenham under the guidance of Michael McBride.
Sum up your experience on the side-line
It was electrifying. The half time interviews with the stadium announcer and your Adriatic representative made us feel indeed very special. Looking around we could see how jealous the rest of the crowd were when they looked at the seating arrangements we had.
What did you think of the game?
We were very lucky indeed that both goals were scored at the end where we sat. The game itself was exciting it would have been a fantastic finish if Hearts could have held on for a victory and for us that would have been the cherry on the top.
Would you attend again ?
Absolutely, we will definitely be going to another game soon!
