Tickets for Brisbane Roar-s pre-season clash with Sydney FC at Virgin Australia Stadium in Mackay on September 16 will go on sale tomorrow.

Prices for the match start at $20 for adults and $10 for children in what promises to be an exciting clash at the central Queensland venue.

Brisbane Roar General Manager Sean Dobson said the match highlighted the club-s commitment to take football to the regions in an effort to promote the code.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to play a high quality match in one of the most important regions in the state,” Dobson said.

“As the only Hyundai A-League club in Queensland it-s important we reach out to as many people as possible and this is an important part of that process.”

Underlining how seriously the club is taking its responsibilities, the Pauls Roar Active Program team will arrive in Mackay on the Tuesday prior to the match to conduct a series of clinics.

The community coaches will conduct clinics in both schools and local clubs in Mackay and, thanks to local industry, will also head out to Moranbah to spread the football word.

In total the Pauls Roar Active Program team will conduct a minimum of 12 clinics with aspiring footballers from the region.

Additionally, the community coaches will also work with local junior coaches to help provide them with up to date training techniques.

“This is not simply a marketing exercise for the club,” Dobson said.

“We want to not only inspire the next generation of footballers, but also build lasting relationships with regional communities.”

Ticket prices for the Mackay match:

Grandstand Adult: $30, Grandstand Conc/Pen/child: $24, General Admis Adult: $20, General Admis Child: $10, General Admis Conc/Pen: $18.
