The Central Coast Mariners are set to face Wellington Phoenix at Knox Grammar on Saturday September 17 at 3:00pm in a pre-season friendly.

The pre-season clash will be the first local opportunity for Mariners’ fans to see Paul Okon’s team in action against a Hyundai A-League opponent.

Located at Wahroonga which is less than an hour’s drive from the Central Coast Mariners Centre of Excellence, Members and fans will be treated to some pre-season football action against Ernie Merrick’s Wellington Phoenix.
