Melbourne United will compete in a Good Friday blockbuster at John Cain Arena against the Cairns Tiapans – a historic moment for the NBL in Australia.
The first ever Good Friday Clash will support the Good Friday Appeal with one dollar from every ticket sold will go towards the Royal Children’s Hospital.
Melbourne United’s CEO Vince Crivelli said the club was proud to represent on the day.
“The Good Friday Appeal raises funds for such an important cause, and we are so proud as a club to be able to support the appeal by donating a dollar per every ticket sold to our game against the Taipans on Good Friday,” he said.
“Melbournians always enjoy a public holiday, and what better way to spend the afternoon than by experiencing live basketball at its best, all the while knowing you are supporting the Good Friday Appeal at the same time.”
The Good Friday match will begin a three game series against the Taipans with the next game set to take place in Cairns before returning to Melbourne for the final match of the mini-series in Round 13.
Following the mini-series against the Taipans, Melbourne United will be on the road for the next two matches.
