Council to host Central Coast Mariners Civic Reception

The celebrations are set to continue for the Central Coast Mariners, with Central Coast Council hosting a public Civic Reception for the Mariners at their season kick-off event on Saturday 5 August!

The public event, to be held at Leagues Club Park in Gosford will be open to the whole community and will enable everyone to re-live the Mariners’ A-League Men’s Championsip win.

Council Administrator Rik Hart said Council has been working closely with the Mariners to find a suitable date for the Central Coast to formally acknowledge the amazing success of the Mariners since their historic win – and expects it will be a wonderful event!

“This Civic Reception will be an opportunity for Council to properly acknowledge the outstanding success of the Mariners, and for the Coast to get behind the Mariners as they kick-off their next season – and I am sure they’ll be aiming for back-to-back wins.”

“The Mariners’ Championsip win sparked enormous joy and pride across the Coast, and I’m pleased that Council is supporting the Mariners with an appropriate acknowledgement for their achievement that the whole community can get behind,” Mr Hart said.

Central Coast Mariners CEO Shaun Mielekamp said the Mariners would like to thank Council for hosting the Civic Reception, following the A-League Grand Final. 

“This should be a great day with plenty on offer for members and fans to come along and thank the team for their awesome efforts.”

“This will also be a great opportunity for us to showcase our upcoming A-League Women’s team under the backdrop of a fantastic FIFA Women’s World Cup, all hosted in front of the spectacular Gosford waterfront that we call home.”
