Adelaide United were out in the community during October visiting several schools and attending a couple of One Culture Football programs.
One Culture Football visits – Adelaide High and Blair Athol
Adelaide United helped support One Culture Football’s Multicultural and Disability programs at Adelaide High School and Blair Athol. The organisation’s Multicultural program aims to connect and engage young people between the ages of 13 and 25 of diverse cultures and backgrounds through football.
The programs help young people; live healthier lifestyles, increase wellbeing from physical activity; reduce antisocial behaviour in the community and develop life skills such as team respect, team building and self-confidence.
Louis D’Arrigo and Kristin Konstandopoulos from our Hyundai A-League squad, attended one of the sessions at Adelaide High School with around 100 people present. Meanwhile, Emily Condon and Emily Hodgson for our Westfield W-League squad helped support a program held at Blair Athol. They all participated in a Q&A session and signed autographs.
Open Training Session
During the school holidays, we held an open training session on Tuesday, 9 October. Following our 2-0 win over Bentleigh Greens in the FFA Cup semi-final a few days earlier to seal our progression to the Cup Final, fans got a chance to meet their heroes. More than 250 supporters braved the cold weather to watch the boys train, while enjoying a free sausage sizzle. As training finished, the players interacted with the fans, signing autographs as well as taking photos.
Immanuel Lutheran College
Nikola Mileusnić and Jordan Elsey visited Immanuel Lutheran College on Monday, 22 October. Around 50 students were present as the pair signed autographs and provided advice on what it takes to become a professional.
Fulham North Primary
Emma Checker and Emily Condon went to Fulham North Primary on Wednesday, 24 October. The two players interacted with students, taking part in a Q&A session and provided training tips.
St Joseph’s Hectorville
On Saturday, 27 October St Joseph’s Hectorville held their Family Fun Fair. More than 1000 people were in attendance and Reds goalkeeper, Daniel Marguš, paid the school a visit. He signed heaps of Adelaide United team posters while speaking with fans.
Stay tuned for November’s update as it has been a really busy month with the FFA Cup trophy on tour.
