A-League kicks off

The A-League kicked off last night with Newcastle going down to Adelaide at home, and Perth losing to Central Coast at home. Those matches attracted crowds of 13000 and 11000 respectively. The Queensland Roar has their first match tomorrow afternoon when they take on the New Zealand Knights at Suncorp Stadium, and there will be a large crowd to see that game, with already over 14000 tickets sold and a large walk-up contingent expected. There’s a very good chance that there will be a larger crowd watching the Roar’s first match than there was watching the Broncos first ever match. I’ve bought tickets already and will be going to watch with my brother and Karen. (Yes, I talked her into it, and she says she’s looking forward to sampling the hotdogs and beer while explaining the off-side rule to the poor soul is who sits next to her. That’s my Karen!) On form so far, the Roar should easily dispose of the Knights. Hopefully an old teammate teammate of mine will shine tomorrow. Score a few Jonti!
