Mariners headed to Tasmania this weekend for pre-season


The Central Coast Mariners will head to Tasmania this weekend for their pre-season trip, organised with the support of South Hobart Football Club.

The Mariners will spend four days in Tasmania as a part of Alen Stajcic’s pre-season preparations, where the Yellow & Navy will play two pre-season friendlies against a Tasmanian State team and of course, South Hobart FC.

After arriving on Saturday, September 7 the Mariners will play a Tasmanian State team on Sunday, 8 September before facing South Hobart on Tuesday, 10 September.

Central Coast Mariners CEO, Shaun Mielekamp thanked South Hobart FC for inviting the club to Tasmania for pre-season.

“On behalf of everyone at the Mariners I would like to thank South Hobart FC for organising two high quality pre-season matches and hosting us in Tasmania,” Mielekamp said. “Having the opportunity to go into camp and come up against the best players in the state is a fantastic addition to our pre-season.

“Whilst the team is in Tasmania we have committed to a range of community activities in Hobart to help promote football, and we can’t wait to get down there,” Mielekamp said.
