When the Socceroos walk out on Friday night to open the Asian Cup, they’ll have a passionate active support group backing them from the terraces.
Lee Hinton, a proud Socceroo fan, is one of the inspirations behind the active supporter group for our national team.
He says now is the time for the supporters to make their voices heard as Australia strive to make history at the Asia’s showpiece international event.
“A number of Socceroos fans from all over the country, through the use of social media, have combined together to try to deliver real home support, utilising flags, banners, tifos and most importantly our voices,” he told www.socceroos.com.au
After around 2500 fans turned up to the national team Fan Day last Sunday, it’s clear that the supporters can lift the players with the Socceroos clearly boosted by the support.
And that’s exactly what Lee hopes will happen over the coming weeks.
“This is the first full senior international tournament that Australia has hosted.
“It is vitally important that we, the Socceroos fans, provide parochial support, to show our team and our country we adore them and want to drive them to strive to be the best.”
Lee added that a number of tifos have been completed and is looking forward to showing them off over the group stage and hopefully beyond.
“This is going to be a momentous event, it could potentially be a real historical achievement in Australian football history,” he added.
“I am very excited to play my part and show how we Australians support our men’s senior national football team, the Socceroos.”
