Football fans are set to flock to Liverpool’s Macquarie Mall when Australia takes on Argentina this Sunday, with Liverpool City Council announcing the match will be broadcast live from the public site.
Mayor, Ned Mannoun said Macquarie Mall was set to become the Federation Square of Sydney, providing a place for football fans to gather together during the momentous occasion of the Socceroos making Round 16 of the World Cup.
“It was amazing watching the Socceroos make history for the second time this morning and Sunday is sure to be both incredible and nerve-racking for us all,” the Mayor said.
“The golden generation made history in 2006 and hopefully the Socceroos can go one better.
“Here in Liverpool we come from many different countries, but when it comes to soccer, we are all Australian so Sunday will be a wonderful opportunity for us all to unite and cheer our team on together.”
The soccer match will be broadcast on the big screen at the Moore Street end of the Macquarie Mall.
“And, while most of us in Liverpool will be cheering on the Aussies, I’d like to extend an invitation to the Argentinian supporters to join us too!” the Mayor said.
“That’s because everyone is welcome in our great city. Even Argentinian soccer supporters,” he joked.
