Who will the Mariners play in round 1? The Club will commence its 2014/15 season against Newcastle Jets in a F3 Derby at Central Coast Stadium in round 1. The game is scheduled for Saturday 11 October with kick-off at 5:00pm.
How many times will the Club play in Gosford next season? The Club is scheduled to host 11 home games in Gosford next Hyundai A-League regular season. Five games are set down as Saturday matches, five are on Sunday, and there is one Friday night fixture.
Why are two games currently marked as venue to be confirmed (TBC)? Currently, two home games on the Club-s draw are marked to be played at venues to be confirmed (TBC) - round 10 against Melbourne Victory and round 17 against Adelaide United. The Club can confirm that it is in discussions with Football Federation Australia (FFA) and relevant entities to look at hosting the Round 10 fixture against Victory at North Sydney Oval, and the Round 17 fixture against Adelaide United at Brookvale Oval, Manly.
Why is the Club seeking to take games to the North Sydney region? Under current ownership and stewardship, the Club commits to hosting a minimum of 11 regular season games in Gosford each campaign. However, the Club is seeking to increase its commercial revenue and fan base, and make itself a more sustainable entity for the future. Venturing to the North Sydney region - where many Mariners Members reside, there is an active but relatively unengaged football community, and many big businesses exist - allows the Club to do this.
Will the North Sydney games be included in my Membership? The Club is set to release its Hyundai A-League 2014/15 Membership packages next week. Full season packages will be priced to include the Club-s 11 regular season home games at Gosford-s Central Coast Stadium. Members will be given the option to add on the proposed round 10 and round 17 fixtures in North Sydney to their Membership at minimal cost, or purchase a North Sydney Membership separately. Members who opt to add the North Sydney and Brookvale fixtures to their Membership will be provided complimentary transport to and from the encounters, as well as dedicated Member Zones and Entrances at the respective venues.
There is no New Year-s Eve fixture at Central Coast Stadium this year. Why? Due to scheduling clashes - involving other Clubs at other Stadia, and the 2015 AFC Asian Cup - this season the Club will not host a New Year-s Eve fixture at Central Coast Stadium. However, the Mariners can confirm that from 2015/16 onwards the Club-s annual final day festival of football on the Gosford waterfront will return.
What are some other key features of the Club-s 2014/15 Draw? Melbourne City will venture to Central Coast Stadium twice, as will defending Hyundai A-League Champions Brisbane Roar. The Club is seeking to host its annual pink round against Wellington Phoenix in round 2, and take on Western Sydney Wanderers in the second last round of the season in Gosford as the 2015 Hyundai A-League Finals Series looms large.
