2015 NPL Victoria Grand Final details

This is how it is at the moment. If things change, or new information is released I will update this post.

Time, date and location
The grand final will be played at Lakeside Stadium on Sunday 13th September, with kickoff at 3:00PM, with the gates opening at 2:00PM (ticket booths at 1:30PM). There will not be a curtain raiser.

Ticketing and admission
The cost of admission to the grand final is $20 for adults, $10 for concession, and free for children 13 and under.

Your South Melbourne membership will not get you into this match, and neither will your FFV season pass. FFV media pass holders will be OK.

Tickets are available for purchase online via Ticketmaster. Despite the booking fees attached, it will provide the least problematic way of getting into the ground.

Keep in mind that purchasing tickets at the gate at Lakeside can be a very slow affair, so if you are planning to buy your tickets on the day, allow yourself ample time to purchase a ticket by arriving early. Hopefully FFV, having now had ample prior experience with this venue in its current incarnation, will have instructed the venue operator to pre-print tickets.

FFV has stated that only the one grandstand will be open on the day, but don't let that dissuade you from coming - hopefully more than enough people turn up that they will be compelled to open the opposite side. 

Live stream
For those who can't be there, FFV will be providing a live video stream of the game. Visit this link for further details.

Final training session
The final training session will not be open to the general public.

Before the game
As per usual some South fans will be gathering at the Limerick Arms on Clarendon Street. We'll be there from 12:00 until 2:00, and all South fans are welcome to join the regulars.


A few notes on comments.

We've had a lot of fun over the years with my freewheeling comments policy, but all good things must come to an end. Therefore I will no longer be approving comments that contain personal abuse of any sort.

Still, if your post doesn't get approved straight away, it's probably because I haven't seen it yet.

As usual, publication of a comment does not mean endorsement of its content.
