Pitch Perfect

The outstanding playing surface at Marvel Stadium was voted by the players as the best pitch in the A-League.

For the second season running the Melbourne Victory fans were voted by the players as creating the best atmosphere in the A-League, narrowly edging out the Wanderers fans.

PFA Executive Alex Wilkinson paid tribute to the Victory fans and the surface at Marvel Stadium.

“The atmosphere created by the Victory fans at every home game is truly electric and they are deserving of the players recognition,” said the Socceroos defender.

“I’d also like to congratulate the staff at Marvel Stadium on producing a fantastic playing surface. The quality of the pitch has a significant impact on the quality of play on it and Marvel Stadium allows players to be at their very best.”
