Football fans can register for free entry to the first W-League game at Coopers Stadium since 2018, thanks to a grand gesture of support from a local business.

In outstanding news for South Australian football fans, Adelaide United has partnered with My Money House to bring W-League football back to Coopers Stadium.

Fans will not have to spend a cent to attend, with My Money House pre-purchasing all tickets for the match against Western Sydney Wanderers on March 21 in an extraordinary show of support for the women’s game.

“Integrating with Adelaide United and supporting the Women’s team at Coopers Stadium provides our business with a range of unique opportunities,” Chief Operating Officer of My Money House Andrew Porter said.

“We want to be seen as a company that backs the sporting community amongst women in South Australia.”

Supporters will need to register via this link and will then be emailed on Wednesday, March 10 where they will be able to redeem their tickets.

My Money House have also revealed that all who enter that are over the age of 18 will go in the running to win an upgrade to a corporate viewing experience, valued at $3495, provided they register before March 18.

Adelaide United CEO Nathan Kosmina has welcomed the partnership and recognises its importance ahead of the 2023 Women’s World Cup.

“We are very excited about this initiative and delighted to partner with My Money House in what is a fantastic demonstration of support for our Women’s team by a proud South Australian business,” he said.

“It is great our Westfield W-League team will be back at Coopers Stadium ahead of the imminent redevelopment of the venue with the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 fast approaching.

“We encourage all of our members, fans as well as the wider sporting public to attend and get behind this wonderful team for our final home game of the regular season.”

United are hoping that this partnership will result in breaking the attendance record for a stand-alone, regular season W-League match, which currently stands at 3105, achieved in round one of the 2016/17 season.

On the pitch, the Reds are flying, with their latest victory over Canberra United seeing them soar to third on the ladder.

Captain Dylan Holmes has been a large part of that success and says that the team is thrilled to be back at Coopers for the first time since 2018.

“So exciting. This stadium is the true home of Adelaide United so we’re really honoured that we get the chance to play here and can’t wait for the 21st of March,” she said.

“It’ll be a huge day and hopefully we get a really good crowd.”

Landing the 2023 World Cup was a landmark achievement for the country and naturally since then, venue selection has been front of mind.

With a planned $45 million upgrade to the stadium looking to take place ahead of the World Cup, SA football fans will be desperate for Coopers to be selected by FIFA as a host venue.

“I think it’ll be an amazing showcase of women’s football and hopefully will prove that Adelaideans will get right behind it when the World Cup is in Australia,” Holmes said.

“It’s a good chance to prove ourselves to stadium selectors and for fans to get right behind it.

“At Marden we’ve been averaging over a thousand most of the home games so that’s probably the best crowd figures we’ve had in a while which is amazing.

“The dream would be a sold-out Coopers Stadium, but if we could break the attendance record, which I believe is 3000 for a regular season W-League game, that would be amazing.”
