Shorts sponsor of the Melbourne Victory W-League side, Associated Storage, has issued a challenge to football fans around Victoria - get down to AAMI Park on December 4 for the game against Brisbane Roar and make history as the biggest Westfield W-League crowd yet!

Passionate about women-s football and keen to see the Melbourne Victory Women-s team become the most supported in the country, Associated Storage has struck a deal to see all young fans 16 years and under admitted into AAMI Park for the Brisbane game free of charge! Adults will pay just $5.00, making it an affordable and enjoyable day of football for everyone at Australia-s premier football venue. Fellow Melbourne Victory W-League partners Clear Solar and Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation are also supporting the promotion.

The challenge issued to all football fans out there is simple - turn up to AAMI Park at 3pm on 4th December and help Associated Storage and Melbourne Victory make history and secure bragging rights as having the biggest crowd at a stand-alone match over the League-s three-year history.

Managing Director of Associated Storage, Graham Dudley, is excited at the prospect of drawing big crowd to the match.

“We understand that Canberra United got 1,600 to one of their matches in the first season of the W-League, so first and foremost we-ll be aiming to beat that figure. We can-t have them hold the title of the biggest home and away game crowd,” he laughed.

“Our company is really proud to partner with the Melbourne Victory W-League team and its going to be a fun couple of weeks building up to the game and setting the challenge to all young football fans to get behind the girls as well,” he added.

“It-s particularly important for young female players out there to show their support of the League as that-ll be their future in the game, so coming along and making it a vibrant and well supported competition will only help make it stronger,” said Dudley.

Melbourne Victory coach, Vicki Linton said that she and her players were delighted to see this challenge set to the football public and that the team is hoping that it will bring them lots of support on the day.

“The game against Brisbane will be a big one for us, they-re a great side, but at an amazing venue like AAMI Park and hopefully with a big crowd behind us, we-ll certainly be in a good position to take it up to the Queenslanders,” she said.

“We-re all hoping that football players and supporters from around the state will step up and accept this challenge and be there. The players certainly work extremely hard to be part of a W-League side and they deserve plenty of support, so I encourage everyone out there to come along and see what we-re all about,” she said.

Associated storage will be giving away FREE TICKETS to juniors aged 16 and younger. To register for your FREE TICKETS as part of the AS Crowd Challenge, visit Patrons under 13 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
