Massive milestones for Roar men and women


Brisbane Roar’s revival continues to go from strength to strength and two significant and proud milestones could be reached this weekend.

On Friday at Suncorp Stadium, Roar fans have the chance to push combined attendances at our Hyundai A-League home matches past the two million mark when we host the in-form Adelaide United (7pm kick off).

On Monday, the Brisbane Roar Women will become the first Westfield W-League club to play 100 games when they take on Premiers Melbourne City Women at AAMI Park.

The match kicks off at 3.30pm (Qld time) and will be telecast LIVE on Fox Sports Ch505 and ABC-TV.

The cumulative crowd for Brisbane Roar home games over 10-and-half seasons of the Hyundai A-League currently is 1,980,636 – 19,364 short of two million. 

To celebrate the two-millionth milestone, Brisbane Roar will reward one lucky fan and one lucky club member who attend the game when the milestone is passed.

Prizes on offer include a Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone thanks to Telstra and lunch with Brisbane Roar Head Coach John Aloisi and selected players for the lucky fan and a $6000 TAG Heuer timepiece  thanks to TAG Heuer Boutique Brisbane for the lucky member.

To be in the running to win, you must be at the game when the two million milestone is reached.

Winners will be selected at random from the entire attendance and contacted by the club after the game.

Friday night’s match is also historic in that it will see the launch of the Roar’s new Match Day Community Partnership Program – with Surf Life Saving Queensland the first service or charity organisation to join us at a home match.

The Roar’s new Community Ambassadors also will be introduced to the crowd for the first time. The 19 ambassadors, selected from more than 40 applications will assist in improving the club’s connections to communities across the state. 

The Roar Women go into their semi-final against the undefeated Premiers Melbourne City with some real momentum after a surging finish to the regular season where they posted three wins and a draw in their final five matches.

And to reach the 100-game milestone first – and ahead of arch rivals Sydney FC – is a further feather in their cap.

Sydney FC, who play Canberra United in the other semi-final, are currently on 98 games. The Lady Sky Blues have played on more semi-final the the Roar Women but Brisbane have played in two more Grand Finals.
