Socceroos v. Malaysia at Canberra Stadium

By 9 September 2011 8

Event Schedule
  • 7 October 2011 at 8:00 pm

Canberra Stadium are letting the world know that “the Qantas Socceroos will host Malaysia in an international friendly match in Canberra on Friday 7 October 2011 (8pm kick-off)”.

This will be the first time that the Qantas Socceroos have played Malaysia in Australia and the match will be used as a crucial build-up to the Qantas Socceroos’ 2014 FIFA World Cup Asian Qualifier against Oman in Sydney four days later.

Tickets for both matches will go on-sale to the Football Family on Monday 12 September and to the general public on Thursday 15 September.

Malaysia, currently ranked 146th in the world, were knocked out of the second round of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Asian Qualifiers by their neighbouring nation Singapore 4-6 on aggregate over the two legs of the tie.

Its exciting till you go to the ticketek website and check out the prices. $80 for an A-reserve seat for an adult, $50 for B reserve – the $25 tickets are only for C Reserve which no doubt will be utterly awful seats. $80 to see the Socceroos play a meaningless friendly against a team ranked 146 in the world that lost to Singapore in world cup qualifiers. Get real Football Federation Australia – will be lucky to get 10,000 to the game, when reasonable prices would have led to 20K+ at the game.

$80? ahahahahahaha, yeah i’ll pass. It’s a shame too – because i would have actually gone if the tickets were reasonable.

and this time no carrot dangling from the FFA along the lines of “Get out there Canberra if you want an A League Team,” we’ve been there, done that, didnt do us any good.

I’ll be there. It will be a full strength team since they’ve got a qualifier a few days later. The Socceroos are world class and Holger Osiek is finding some real gems within the youngsters. $25 is not much more than going to the movies you tight ar$es. It probably costs $10 to go see the local rugby grand final, and this is your national team playing down the road from you. Crowd will be big.

With A-league crowds down 16% last season and plumetting it’s probably a good thing we didn’t get a team. At least the soccer folks don’t even pretend to be just waiting for the “sleeping giant” to awaken any more.

If you want to have a go at the sport, probably best not to quote numbers. More players than all the other sports combined, 20,000 in Canberra alone. A-League’s going fine, and the giant has already awoken (and it’s coming to crush you!).

I’m not sure why supporters of one code feel the need to be haters of the other codes. It is possible to enjoy Aussie Rules, Rugby and Soccer all at the same time.

Although it does make for some confusion on the pitch!
