MELBOURNE Victory players will bless the Ballarat public with a photo signing session prior to Tuesday night’s friendly with the Ballarat Red Devils.
A full-strength Victory outfit featuring the likes of Matthieu Delpierre, Besart Berisha, Kosta Barbarouses and Archie Thompson will attempt to hand the Red Devils a lesson at Morshead Park.
Victory will be coached by Kevin Muscat, who would love to get one over former teammate and Red Devils player manager James Robinson.
Kick-off will take place at 7pm, with gates open at 5pm.
Newly named Socceroos Mark Milligan and Carl Valeri are also set to square off against Ballarat’s best and brightest.
Victory players will hold a signing and photo session on the deck of the Morshead Park function room from 5 to 5.30pm.
Meanwhile, young footballers will get a chance to test their skills in mini-clinics and meet the visitors ahead of the match as part of
Victory’s first KFC Regional Roadshow.
Tickets are priced at $10 for adults, $7 for concession and $3 for children.
The venue will be providing static and roaming money exchange points to purchase tokens for food and drink within the stadium.
No ATM or EFTPOS will be available in the stadium, with patrons to pay by cash only.
The Red Devils are in desperate need for a quality end of season practice match as they prepare to make a jump from the National Premier Leagues Victoria relegation zone with their final four matches.
Ballarat will have just three days to prepare for a must-win catch-up clash against Bentleigh Greens on Saturday, following the completion of Tuesday’s friendly.
