World Cup Qualifier Registration Closes Today
Today is your last day to register for the Football Family’s exclusive access for Australia’s FIFA World Cup qualifiers in November against the 5th placed South American team. Click through here for details on how to register.
November will see the Socceroos take on a South American opponent in our quest to play in the FIFA World CupTM for the first time in more than 30 years. The game will take place at Telstra Stadium in Sydney, and will be the biggest sporting event happening in Australia in 2005.
As a way of saying thank you to the Football community who have supported Football in Australia over the years, the FFA has taken the unprecedented step of reserving all of the available tickets for this once in a lifetime event, for members of your club and others like it around Australia. The general public will not be given access to tickets until the Football Community has had their chance!
To enable this to happen, we would like to invite you to register as a member of the “Football Family” for this exclusive opportunity to purchase tickets for this event. Everyone involved in playing and managing football, from players through to team coaches, managers, match officials, administrators, members and volunteers, can register. So can supporters who become members of Hyundai A-League Clubs, or attend the Solomon Islands World Cup qualifier in September. When you register, you will receive an exclusive "MyFootball Number" (MFN). You will have to quote your MFN in order to purchase tickets for the World Cup qualifying game in November when they go on sale exclusively to the Football Family in November. Registering for the Football Family is free and fast. Registrations open on July 25th, and close on September 9th. Don-t miss out - Register Now!
