Mariners clash to mark Remembrance Day

Melbourne Victory’s Round 4 Hyundai A-League against the Central Coast Mariners will be dedicated to remembering and acknowledging the service men and women who sacrificed their lives during times of conflict.

‘Remembrance Round’, a joint initiative between Football Federation Australia (FFA), the Hyundai A-League Clubs and the Australian Defence Force (ADF), will be observed at all matches this weekend

Remembrance Round will help promote the observance of Remembrance Day nationally, provide benefits to ADF personnel, and utilise the Hyundai A-League as a vehicle to effect meaningful social change by shining a spotlight on the significance of Remembrance Day.

Remembrance Round is a significant opportunity to be able to commemorate Remembrance Day with the ADF, RSL (Returned & Services League of Australia), and the Football Community in Australia.

WATCH: Remembrance Round on Sunday

Before every match this weekend there will be an ADF military order of service as a mark of respect to those that have served their country.

In addition, all Hyundai A-League clubs hosting matches this weekend will have special ticket offers for serving ADF members to recognise and thank those in the defence forces and all clubs will use the opportunity to raise funds for the Poppy Appeal through the auctioning off of their commemorative playing kits which will be used during the round.
