Sunday, 17 February at Suncorp Stadium is officially the Roar-s Retro Round!
We host Wellington Phoenix as Brisbane Roar pays tribute to the eight years since the Hyundai A-League began and this proud club was formed.
During this time, we-ve seen plenty of ups and downs, a host of interesting signings come in and out the door (anyone remember the Chinese David Beckham, Yuning Zhang or Brazilian marksman Marincho?) and of course, the historic back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012.
There were the frustrating days of few home wins at Suncorp Stadium, the club re-naming to Brisbane Roar in 2009 and more recent memories of Albanian livewire Besart Berisha making headlines with his impeccable scoring form.
Some of the Roar faithful will remember these and many more but for those who don-t (and those who want to relive the best moments!), we-re dragging out…. • Team posters of past squads - remember those white t-shirts in 2005? • That awesome season one ad, featuring inaugural captain and original Roar heart-throb Chad Gibson • Footage of our best ever goals… Is Hyuk-Su Seo-s cracker from 2005/06 or Reinaldo-s semi-final effort against Sydney FC your favourite? We-ll let you vote as the day gets nearer.
We want YOU to do your part by wearing the most vintage Roar kit you can find. Yes, this means your orange, maroon and blue combo, the dusty, old school Queensland Roar jersey or even that kit you didn-t wash once during the 36-match unbeaten streak.
Get your tickets here and we-ll see you there! If you-re involved in a local football club, you-ll receive double ONE GOAL points for any match ticket purchases!
