    So that thing with the ownership seems to be their line now - but then WTF was with the "Property of Central Coast Council" sign that they felt compelled to put up on the screen last year?
    Is it just that a working screen belongs to them, and a broken one to CCM?

    Good to hear re the pitch.

    Story seems to change about the screen every few days. Can they offer a timeline regarding replacement?

    I think it's a poor excuse re the pitch. Did we see any other pitch with sand all over it? Just poor timing by the council and shows that its not a priority. As for the screen.........well.

    Hey guys.
    How is everyone? Haven't posted in long time but without other social media these days I'm just looking for assistance on how to get a customised jersey?
    The club answered via emailed that they don't have and aren't planning on giving the service.
    Had anyone got this seasons strip with players name and number? If so how'd you achieve it?

    Obviously cool with this to be moved to a more appropriate thread is there is one @mods?

    Believe you have to go through rebel sports but I thought the club was going to provide the service e eventually?

    Cheers Scott.
    I had a quick email exchange for the club today in which they said they have no plan to provide the service.
    Rebel sport is. My dollars to them and not the club I guess.

    Yep it's actually talked about at length in this thread if you want to go back a few pages. Shaun explained that it was not financially viable for the club to provide the service due to where the money goes and rebel is the only place you'll get that done. Unfortunate but understandable.

    Ahhhhh! Thanks for the clarification and info Scott.
    Will be making a trip to Rebel this week.

    On another note,
    I guess fair weather fans say it all the time but I've been there since day dot. Went to every home game first season and travelled a few times also but moved overseas before season two for a couple years.
    I've lived in Sydney since then and made it back for games when work has permitted.
    I can honestly say this is the most excited I've been for a season since winning the GF!
    Pretty keen to forget last week and start fresh this round!
    Carn your Mariners!!!!

    Christ they're a useless mob... By the time they actually start work, the season for their main tenant, has been going for 2 months...
    Hopefully the new council will do better..

    The Central Coast Mariners are proud to be one of only three clubs in Australia to have its academy accredited with ‘2 Star’ status under a new Football Federation Australia (FFA) system designed to provide more high-quality coaching to a larger number of potential talented players.

    Central Coast Mariners, Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers have become the first Hyundai A-League clubs to have their academies accredited with ‘2 Star’ status under a new Football Federation Australia (FFA) system designed to provide more high-quality coaching to a larger number of potential talented players.

    The Mariners Academy represent the Central Coast from the under 9’s through to senior men and train locally on the Central Coast.

    In addition to the male programs, the Central Coast Mariners Academy are also the only club of the three ‘Two Star’ accredited academies that have female programs from under 10’s to senior women.

    The Central Coast Mariners Academy is made predominantly of homegrown talent with 86% of all players originating from a junior club right here on the Central Coast.

    FFA CEO David Gallop says 2 Star accreditation of the first three Hyundai A-League club academies is a landmark occasion for football in Australia.

    “The development of top tier club academies is a major focus of the 20 year Whole of Football Plan,” said Gallop. “Over the past 10 years our player development path has been very narrow. The approach we have been working on for the past couple of years is to put our Hyundai A-League clubs and National Premier Leagues clubs at the heart of player development with support and guidance from the FFA and our Member Federations.

    “We are now seeing this become a reality,” he said.


    Central Coast Mariners CEO, Shaun Mielekamp expressed his excitement of today’s announcement.

    “This is a huge moment for our Academy and a testimony to the quality and dedication of everyone involved in player development at the Central Coast Mariners,” Mielekamp said.

    “As we look to grow the program and keep raising the bar there is no doubt that the pathway provided for young players will only result in more talented kids getting opportunities that were previously not available.

    “The Mariners have always, and will always, be dedicated to giving youth a chance which is why this announcement is so exciting,’ Mielekamp said.

    Now all we need to the W League side.

    I commented last week that I wondered how many fans would turn up to watch the boys on NYE, after the crowd's reaction to the VAR debacle against WSW. We now know that 9,100 turned up, the only time we've been below 10,000 for this event.

    I did some (very cursory) research. I was stunned at how our NYE crowds have fallen over the years. I don't know how many fans we lost this year due to the VAR 'decisions', or if it is because we haven't been competitive, or perhaps it is in line with general attendances throughout the A-League etc. I'd be interested in the thoughts of others on this subject.

    I've listed the figures below, taken from press reports of the games - note that some figures are estimates only.
    2005 11,612
    2006 >15,000
    2007 18,686 Record attendance
    2008 15,546
    2009 11,137
    2010 12,409
    2011 ~15,000
    2012 14,591
    2013 12,919
    2014 - Am I correct in saying that we did not have a NYE game that year?
    2015 >10,000
    2016 ~11,000
    2017 9,110 Lowest crowd, in a year that Shaun, DDTMM & team have achieved record membership...

    Took me a moment :p
    Great post, if somewhat depressing.
    I wonder how much our opposition has influenced the crowd figures...
