Brisbane Roar’s Isuzu UTE A-League squad will be returning to the Fraser Coast later this month for a pre-season training camp and exhibition game on Saturday, August 27.
The exhibition game will be at Fraser Coast Sports and Recreation Precinct, with kick off from 2:30pm. Entry is free.
The exhibition match will see the Roar come up against an FQPL Wide Bay Men’s All-Stars Select side.
After two successful trips to the Fraser Coast region in recent years, the Brisbane Roar will be returning for a third time to the region to spend three days in training.
Brisbane Roar A-League Men’s Head Coach Warren Moon said the club is excited to again be visiting the region for a third year.
“Being the only A-League club in the state, Brisbane Roar is proud to represent all of Queensland,” Moon said.
“We take it upon ourselves as a club to get out to regional areas in the state such as the Fraser Coast, put on exhibition games, and engage with the local football communities.”
“I know the club is proud to have a strong relationship with the Fraser Coast Regional Council, which continues to deliver great outcomes for the football community in the region.”
In last year’s fixture, the exhibition game attracted over 3,000 spectators to the Fraser Coast Sports and Recreation Precinct.
“The regular visits by the Roar help build our reputation as a premier regional Queensland football hub,” Fraser Coast Mayor George Seymour said.
“The exhibition game will be free to watch, [and] will be very popular.”
The Roar will be in the region from Tuesday 23 August and will be participating in various community activities throughout the week outside their training schedule.
Training sessions on both Wednesday 24 August and Thursday 25 August will be open to the public from 4:30pm at Fraser Coast Sports & Recreation Precinct.
Open training sessions will conclude with opportunities to meet the playing squad for signatures and photos.
