NEWS: Get ready for Family Day 2014!


Melbourne City FC will be holding its annual Family Day on Sunday 21 September

The Club is looking forward to the biggest Family Day yet with a range of exciting events, activities and competitions planned throughout the day in 2014.

Family Day will commence at 11am at La Trobe University’s Lower Playing Fields on Sunday 21 September, with members and fans given the unique opportunity to attend an open training session, prior to Family Day commencing.

In addition to previous activities at Family Day, Melbourne City FC will also introduce a mega Melbourne City FC home jersey, with all 2014/15 members invited to sign their messages of support for the team this season.

The giant shirt, complete with fan messages, will be unfurled at home matches in a message of support for players as they make their way onto AAMI Park for all of the Club’s 13 home matches.

Although official festivities kick-off at 11am, the Club will be holding an open training session that will begin at 9:45am where fans can watch the likes of Robi Koren and Damien Duff in action. 

While Family Day presents fans and members with the opportunity to mingle with their Melbourne City FC heroes, there will also be plenty of events for all fans, young and old, with our MatchWorks player photo booth, the Westpac carnival stand, the LOVE Real Estate BBQ and samples from Melbourne City FC’s sports drink partner, Hydralyte.

After the conclusion of training, players will move to the Bluestar Global Logistics stage where they will be handed their playing jerseys for the season and sit down for the HOSTPLUS Signing Session.

Etihad Airways will also be offering two lucky members the incredible opportunity to present the Melbourne City FC playing squad with their playing jerseys on stage and the two members will walk away with their own home jerseys.

In addition, Etihad Airways will be giving away eight home jerseys to members who attend Family Day as part of a competition during September.

Fans are urged not to forget their hydration throughout the day with Yarra Valley Water’s fresh water station and Westpac will be running a gold coin donation campaign for their Life Saver Rescue Helicopter as well.

There will be plenty of 2014/15 merchandise on sale and members will be able to pick up their membership packs for the upcoming Hyundai A-League season.
