EnergyAustralia has again teamed up with the Central Coast Mariners to present EnergyAustralia Kids Free Day, which provides primary school students the opportunity to gain free entry to a Mariners- match at Bluetongue Stadium and also learn more about the importance of electricity safety.

Last week more than 45,000 vouchers were delivered to primary schools across the Central Coast offering students aged 12 years and under the chance to attend the Mariners next Hyundai A-League home match when they take on Queensland Roar on Saturday, 6 December.

There is a limit of 2000 free kids- tickets available and students wishing to take advantage of this offer are encouraged to redeem early to avoid disappointment.

Vouchers can be redeemed in person at Ticketek at Bluetongue Stadium, Mingara Recreation Club or Castle Hill for a free child-s general admission ticket when purchasing a full paying adult ticket (maximum of two vouchers can be redeemed per full paying adult).

Beyond providing free entry to the game, the promotion aims at increasing the awareness among young children of electricity safety in and around the home.

EnergyAustralia-s General Manager Network, Geoff Lilliss, said that educating students about electricity safety was crucial to help prevent accidents.

"What we teach children at school about electricity safety is a life skill that can be every bit as important as learning to read and write," Mr Lilliss said.

"EnergyAustralia Kids Free Day is an important and very successful component of our overall safety program that underpins our objective to provide a safe network for customers and the community."

EnergyAustralia has developed a range of information and activities as part of Kids Free Day.

The vouchers that were delivered to students also carried important electricity safety messages, and promotes an online electricity safety quiz giving children a chance to win great prizes for themselves and their school.

Electricity safety posters were also provided for display in classrooms.

EnergyAustralia will also roll out a number of other activities on the match day including on-screen safety messages from Mariners captain Alex Wilkinson.

Mariners Executive Chairman Lyall Gorman congratulated EnergyAustralia one the Kids Free Day initiative and encourage young Mariners fans to take advantage of this great offer.

"Firstly, we thank EnergyAustralia for their continued support of the Mariners and for providing this fantastic opportunity for our younger supporters to experience the Hyundai A-League free of charge," said Gorman.

"We-ve not got the best record against the Queensland Roar at Bluetongue Stadium and we-re hopeful that there will be a significant turnout on 6 December to help us post our first win against the Roar at home and that amongst the gallery on hand will be thousands of our young supporters."

The Mariners- Hyundai A-League campaign continues on Saturday, 29 November when they travel to Members Equity Stadium to face the Perth Glory. Kick off is at 8pm AEDT.

The Mariners are next at their Bluetongue Stadium home on Saturday, 6 December when they host the Queensland Roar in Round 14. Kick off is at 6pm.

Tickets for this match are on sale from Ticketek outlets, from the Ticketek website - www.ticketek.com.au, or via phone on 132 849.
