Central Coast Mariners will host Carols on the Coast at Central Coast Stadium on December 20, with a day full of music, soccer, carols, and Christmas cheer.
Gates will open at 2 pm for the Mariners’ Family Day and Corporate Launch, with a game between the Mariners and a Young Socceroos Talent Identification Squad to start at 3 pm.
The carols, from 5.30-7.30 pm will be headlined by former Hi-5 member Nathan Foley and the Girls from Little Quirks.
Central Coast Mariners CEO, Shaun Mielekamp, said it was an important opportunity for the Club to make a mark in the community.
“Coming up to Christmas time the carols are a big event for families, so for us to be able to give them life again and create this for the community is a special opportunity for us,” Mielekamp said.
“We’re the Community Club, and we know that we have a role to play here on the Coast, and this forms part of our commitment to the region.
“Our mantra this season is to not back down, and this is an example of the determination we need to show as a club and a community to move forward into the new year and a positive future.
“When it became clear that so many Christmas and New Year’s Eve events were having to be cancelled, we knew we could give back and make sure that families and kids didn’t miss out.
“These sorts of special occasions can create lifelong memories, and during a tough year where there is plenty of doom and gloom locally and abroad, we have to focus on what we can do as a collective.
“It’s also exciting being able to welcome some of Australia’s brightest young football talents on the day to take on our boys and give the fans a chance to see their Mariners in action ahead of the season starting.”
Central Coast Mariners Members get free entry to the match and carols, with public tickets on sale at $10 for adults and $5 for children.
