    Return to Syd FC game to promote A-League 4 CBR

    Post by cbrmacca on Tue Sep 20, 2011 6:52 am

    I was thinking about the trip to Sydney two seasons and not how much fun it was BUT how much it meant for us as a football community. We did not really get into the cheering until the 2nd half but then you could not stop us. Everyone wanted to know who we were and were pleased to see us fair dinkum about being in the A-League.

    So we need to do it again and on an annual basis (if not twice a season).

    Such a trip is good for 3 reasons:
    1. To let FFA and the football community in Australia know that we will remain to be serious about having a football team to call our own
    2. To let other Canberran's that we are also serious about being part of the world game
    3. To build our 'united' fan culture

    It is not all about the boardroom - WE need to continually fight for and demonstrate our passion to have our own team.

    I am thinking of a Sunday trip so it makes it a day trip (& b4 Christmas etc gets in the way)(depending on the W-League draw)
    Sunday November 6 SFC v GCU 5pm OR
    Sunday December 4 SFC v BRR 5pm

    So answer the poll & let us take control again!

    Didn't attend the last one, but from all reports it was a huge success with a decent contingent there in support. Definitely would consider a trip, assuming numbers were strong and if this took place in December/January when I am off.

    That's the key Joey, "if the numbers were right". unfortunately, the euphoria of the bid has really died down and thus it would be difficult to accrue those numbers. WOuld love to be proven wrong however, and i'd certainly be keen for a road trip up to Sydney.

    It would actually be sick if us as well as the western front guys went to the same Sydney game! Get some good numbers to the game as well to show our views!
