Member for Lismore, Thomas George MP, announced yesterday that the NSW government was supporting Lismore City Council in securing a pre-season football match between interstate rivals Brisbane Roar and Melbourne Heart.

‘This is a great win for Lismore,’ said Mr George. ‘The game between Melbourne Heart and Brisbane Roar will be played on Sunday August 25 at Oakes Oval.’

Mr George says the match will be one of the first hit-outs of the 2013 season for the two clubs and promises to be football superstar Harry Kewell’s first appearance in Melbourne Heart colours. ‘In addition to this important pre-season match, players and support staff from Melbourne Heart and Brisbane Roar will be staying in Lismore, enjoying our renowned hospitality.’

The Melbourne Heart team will be based in Lismore for a pre-season training camp from August 24 to 28. Fans will be able to see the Heart in action at a series of school camps, open days and signing sessions. ‘Lismore comes alive with a huge number of family-friendly festivals and events throughout the year,’ says minister for tourism and major events George Souris. ‘As well as the pre-season game between Melbourne Heart and Brisbane Roar, visitors to Lismore can also enjoy horse racing at the Lismore Cup in September and the National Lismore Show in October.’
