It’s a big weekend of action for the Central Coast Mariners and our incredible supporters, with numerous events occurring in the lead up to and after Saturday night’s A-League Grand Final. 

Have a look down below at the activities and key timings that will be taking place over the weekend, beginning on Friday and not finishing until Sunday. 


The fun first kicks off on Friday night, as the Mariners will be making a special appearance at the Grand Final Pre-Party. While the event begins at 2:30pm, with Moore Park’s Entertainment Quarter playing host, the players will be in attendance between 5pm – 5:30pm. 

Ex-Mariners legends will be taking on a side filled with former Melbourne City players in a 5-a-side competition, while representatives of our NSW League One Women’s side will also be facing a Melbourne City outfit.
