The 2018 FIFA World Cup is just days away and Adelaide City Football Club will this year be hosting viewing parties at our Unley Rd clubrooms for Australia’s first two matches of the tournament in what are sure to be a great nights.
The Socceroos open their 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign against 1998 winners and European heavyweight France on Saturday the 16th of June, with kickoff currently scheduled for 7:30pm ACST. This match will also be Bert van Marwijk’s first competitive match in charge of the team since he took the reigns in January after Ange Postecoglou’s resignation last November.
The clash with France is a vital one for Australia; if they are to stand a chance of qualifying through to the Round of 16 for just the second time in the nation’s history, then a strong showing against the French is essential.
Our second event is on Thursday the 21st of June, where the Socceroos will go up against Denmark in their second group game of the tournament. This is another very tough game against strong European opposition, however depending on the result of the first match with France, this could very well be do-or-die for the team.
Adelaide City have had a very good relationship with the Australian national team in the past; statistician Andrew Howe listed the club as having 48 Socceroos throughout the club’s history in his upcoming Encyclopaedia of the Socceroos publication. Some of City’s finest players have donned the green and gold, including NSL legends Milan Ivanovic, Alex Tobin, Aurelio and Tony Vidmar.
The Adelaide City Football Club looks forward to hosting you on this monumental night and encourage you to join us as we cheer on our Socceroos on the World Stage.
