The Central Coast Mariners have partnered with Soccer5s, Anytime Fitness (Tuggerah & Lakehaven) and Central Coast Football to endorse elite football at Soccer5s Tuggerah whilst promoting the importance of fair play.
The Central Coast Mariners have entered two academy teams into the Anytime Fitness Premier League, played at Soccer5s Tuggerah that will be monitored by Academy Director, Ken Schembri & Youth Team Head Coach Ben Cahn who will be keeping an eye on local talent within the competition.
The Anytime Fitness Premier League will be contested by the best footballers on the Central Coast throughout the months of summer that will allow the best players from the Central Coast Football Premier League to regularly come up against teams from the Mariners Academy.
Although the competition will be hotly contested and provide a chance for local talent to put themselves in contest for places within the Mariners Academy, Soccer5s, Anytime Fitness (Tuggerah & Lakehaven), Central Coast Football and the Central Coast Mariners will also be sending a strong message about the important of fair play.
The initiative being launched is that when a referee finishes a shift at Soccer5s they will award a player with a ‘green card’ for fair play who will go in the draw to win corporate seats at an upcoming Mariners game.
Soccer5s Operations Director, John Smith is excited to be working alongside the Mariners to help identify the next raft of local talent whilst promoting the importance of fair play.
“Soccer5s are delighted to be working in the local community with the endorsement and support of the Central Coast Mariners,” Smith said. “The Mariners are the only professional sporting team on the Central Coast so to have them interested and committed to community football is a fantastic opportunity for us.
“This partnership really gives our customers an opportunity to connect with the Mariners at all levels and put themselves in the shop front for the next step in their career,” Smith said.
