FOOTBALL Wagga president Erwin Budde has described Monday’s FFA Cup fixture as the biggest soccer match to be played in the city in “recent living memory”.
The city’s new soccer franchise, Wagga City Wanderers, will play their first home game when they take on Western Condors in round four of the FFA Cup.
The game was originally scheduled for last Wednesday but has been moved to midday, Easter Monday at Gissing Oval.
Budde hopes a big crowd will turn out to support the Wanderers for the big occasion.
“We are expecting a huge turnout to the first home game of the new outfit’s short existence,” Budde said.
“Playing on a public holiday, kicking off at midday, in front of a home crowd will be an experience all the boys in the team will be looking forward to.”
“The game is by far the biggest competitive match witnessed in Wagga for a long time.
“To be playing in this prestigious tournament is what football is all about.”
