Adelaide United FC would like to convey its appreciation to all of the club's supporter groups.
We would like to convey the club-s appreciation to all of the club's supporter groups.
While the result was not what we were after, your attempts to lift the players on Sunday afternoon against the Wanderers was terrific. We hope this continues in the remaining matches and the rest of the crowd feels encouraged to join in. We're sure many more fans will be ready to do so against Melbourne Victory this week.
We have been delighted with the behaviour of the crowd at Hindmarsh and the positive atmosphere that has been created, particularly over the past two home games. We are pleased to report that during these two matches not a single incident was reported and not a single person was evicted from either match. We are hopeful this trend continues, but with our next opponent Melbourne Victory, we know that this will be a difficult challenge.
We urge all supporters to continue to act in accordance with the FFA-s Spectator Code of Behaviour and the Terms of Admission, and we look to our Active Supporter Groups leading by the example you have set during the last two home games.
With incidents from last weekend-s Melbourne derby being highlighted in various media outlets, there will no doubt be a heavy media focus on our match this Friday night. We ask all spectators (both active and non-active) to consider this, whether inside or outside the ground. Any negative behaviour, no matter how minor, will be reported in a negative way by the media. This will only tarnish the reputations of Adelaide United, the supporters, and the game itself.
We all have a common goal - support the team and support the growth of football in this state. The more positive the media reports are, the more likely we can achieve this goal.
Thank you, well done & we look forward to seeing you in the terraces in full voice on Friday night.
