Millions unite Sydney and Melbourne

Millions and millions and millions.

The word of today from Sydney and Melbourne is millons, lots of them.
“Football is played by millions of children around the world and by more young Australians than any other sport.

“We are delighted to have young Australians participating in this important FIFA event in Australia, “said FFA CEO Ben Buckley promoting the opening of the FIFA World Congress tomorrow.

And in Melbourne....
Millions set to watch Melbourne Victory face Juventus.

Melbourne Victory CEO Geoff Miles today confirmed that millions of viewers will join a massive crowd at Telstra Dome when the club takes on Italian giant Juventus this Friday.

Less than 5000 tickets remain for the blockbuster friendly and will be available at the gate prior to the match.

“We still have some good seats left and we’re very confident that there’ll be a massive crowd at Telstra Dome tomorrow night,” Miles said.

“There are now seats available from $34 for adults, so we encourage Melbourne Victory fans, Juventus fans and sports lovers to be at Telstra Dome for this special event.”

Juventus’ legion of supporters, which totals over 170 million worldwide, will also be able to watch the match, with 24 broadcasters set to stream to 99 countries.

“We’re thrilled to confirm that the television coverage for the game will be huge.

“The game will be broadcast to 99 countries throughout the world, including Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Africa and America, and of course through Fox Sports in Australia.

“It’s a great opportunity to promote our beautiful city throughout the world to an audience of millions, reinforcing Melbourne’s position as the premier sport and event city in the world.”
