20 children from the Carn the Kids program were treated to a one hour clinic, tour of the back of house facilities at AAMI Park and food and drinks.

Melbourne Victory players Sebastian Mattei, Geoff Kellaway, Luke O'Dea, Petar Franjic and Melbourne Victory Carn the Kids ambassador Rodrigo Vargas were on hand to assist with drills and offer their expertise.
