Central Coast Council has congratulated the Central Coast Mariners on their triumphant victory in the weekend’s Isuzu UTE A-League Grand Final. 

The Council said the Mariners’ journey to the championship had captivated and inspired the entire region, showcasing the team’s resilience, dedication, and exemplary sportsmanship.

The 3-1 victory in extra time marks a historic achievement for the Mariners, as they have not only reached the pinnacle of Australian football including winning back-to-back grand finals but have also brought immense pride and joy to the Central Coast community, said Council Administrator, Rik Hart.

He praised the Mariners for their exceptional season and remarkable Grand Final win against Melbourne Victory, saying their unwavering determination and outstanding performance throughout the season has cemented their place in the hearts of fans and has highlighted the unifying power of sport.

“We are immensely proud of their achievements, including securing the Asian Football Cup and the way they have represented the Central Coast on the national and international stage.”

Mr Hart said the Central Coast Mariners’ success had ignited a wave of excitement and celebration across the region. 

“They have won the Treble, which has never been achieved in Australia in either the men’s and women’s competition and have shown what can be achieved through commitment and a strong sense of community spirit,” Mr Hart said.

“The 20,059 supporters in attendance at the game, and the fantastic crowd at our Grand Final Live Site on Saturday night highlighted the unifying power of sport. 

“Council continues to look forward to continuing to support the Mariners and celebrating their future successes.”
