Melbourne City FC is excited to announce that Preston Lions FC are the latest to join the City Clubs program!
This announcement could not have come at a better time with City’s senior NPL squad to begin its season away to the Lions on Friday night.
This fixture will be played at Genis Steel Stadium @ B.T Connor Reserve and kicks off at 8pm.
There will also be a City merchandise truck, as well as a membership marquee at the venue to get you sorted with all of your City needs!
A number of City’s A-League players will be in action, with the likes of Stefan Colakovski, Ben Garuccio, Marco Tilio, and Naoki Tsubaki all featuring in our final NPL pre-season friendly last Saturday.
A week after netting his first A-League goal, Colakovski scored a hattrick in that friendly – a big 7-1 win against Victory.
Preston Lions FC have been a major part of the Macedonian community ever since it was founded way back in 1947 so there’s a nice link to Colakovski who also comes from the same background.
With City not in action in the A-League until Monday, get set for a big Friday night of football down at B.T Connor Reserve before you rush home to catch our W-League side take on Perth – live on Kayo.
