In 2015, Central Coast Mariners will compete in the AFC Champions League – Asia’s most prestigious Club competition – for an Australian record fifth time.
This time round, the Mariners will have to go through the qualifying phase of the competition, before hopefully embarking on a positive Group Stage campaign.
This Wednesday Central Coast Mariners Team Manager Rik Katte will fly to the home of Asian football, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for the 2015 AFC Champions League Conference and Draw.
