Football Federation Australia praises Australian fans

FFA Chairman Steven Lowy and CEO David Gallop have praised Australian fans as the Socceroos take on Denmark in their second FIFA World Cup™ match.

With over 6,000 travelling fans expected to be in the Samara Arena today to cheer our boys on, it is a testament to the Australian spirit that so many fans have made the effort to get to Russia overcoming travel, accommodation and logistical challenges along the way to show their support.

“The magnificent level of support at our opening match against France in Kazan has already won us a lot of friends in Russia,” said Steven Lowy

“The camaraderie and spirit that exists amongst the cohort of travelling Australian fans has been outstanding throughout the event so far.

“I’m sure that same level of support will be on display in Samara today,” concluded Lowy.

Socceroos fans

David Gallop echoed Steven Lowy’s comments.

“Speaking to many fans throughout the group stage so far, there is a great sense of national pride.

“From all reports, our fans have really embraced the local culture and have enjoyed the Russian hospitality.

“Looking towards today’s match, when the Socceroos walk out onto the pitch today they will definitely get a lift from the sea of gold and vocal support within the stadium. Go Caltex Socceroos.” concluded Gallop.
