After an incredible regular season, the Central Coast Mariners are preparing for a massive semi-final face-off against Adelaide United.
With two legs, a trip to Adelaide, a massive game at Industree Group Stadium and another Drifters Wharf live site, here is all the information.
Two leg semi-final; how does it work?
By qualifying in second place, the Central Coast Mariners skipped the elimination finals and moved straight into the semi’s. Our opponent was to be the highest ranked winner of the two finals matches over the weekend, which turned out to be Adelaide United.
This has set up a blockbuster two leg semi-final clash against the Reds, with the winner progressing to the Grand Final. Adelaide will host the first leg of the semi-finals this Saturday night at 7:45pm AEDT, with our boys travelling down to Coopers Stadium.
The Mariners will then host the second leg, which will kick off at 7:45pm on Saturday, May 20th at Industree Group Stadium. The team that progresses through will be the side who scores the most goals in total over the two matches, both home and away.
There will be no away goals rule in place, meaning that if the combined scores over the two legs are locked up at the end of the game at Our Paradise, it will go to extra time. From there penalties will follow, ultimately deciding a winner.
Mariners’ members have been sent codes for both the home and away leg to get discounted tickets. Get in quick because these codes expire tomorrow!
From then you will be able to purchase general tickets through Ticketek for the games, starting from 12pm Tuesday, May 9th. You can buy these HERE!
Live Site information
The Central Coast Mariners will again be running a live site to watch the first leg of our semi-final match up against Adelaide United.

Kick-off is at 7:45pm this Saturday night, so be sure to support the team before we return home for a massive second match. Please note that there will be limited seats available, so make sure to get there early!
