David Gallop wants bosses to let fans off work at 4pm this Monday to see the Socceroos play their final game on Aussie soil. So have your boss to call the FFA boss and he’ll explain why getting to the game early is the patriotic thing to do.
With the game kicking off at 7.30pm and gates opening at 5.30pm, the FFA CEO has devised a plan to encourage bosses to let fans leave work at 4pm.
He wants your boss to call him on the number above and he’ll explain why getting to the game early and sending off the Socceroos in style is so important.
After all, this is our boys’ last hit-out on Aussie soil before they fly to Brazil to take on the might of Chile, Holland and Spain.
So hand your boss this leave pass and let Mr Gallop sweet talk your boss into giving you a Socceroos Leave Pass for Monday night’s farewell game against South Africa at ANZ Stadium.
Avoid the crush on public transport (which is included in your ticket) and get there early.
Gallop has spoken!
