AFC Asian Cup marks 100 days to go!

AFC Asian Cup Australia 2015 will be hailed as the centrepiece of the biggest summer in Australian football history when sporting, government, business and media leaders gather to mark the tournament’s “100 days to go” milestone on Wednesday October 1.

Asian Cup local football ambassadors including Socceroos great Brett Emerton, former AFC Asian Cup winner and recently recalled Iraqi national team player Ali Abbas of Sydney FC, and a host of football media luminaries will attend the lunch.

In Kuala Lumpur, headquarters of the AFC, representatives of the 16 Asian Cup finalists will be attending a meeting finalising details of the biggest football tournament ever held in Australia.

“One hundred sleeps to go. We are now literally counting the days until the biggest football tournament Australia has ever staged,” said Michael Brown, CEO of the Local Organising Committee.

“Excitement levels will go through the roof when the 16 teams assemble soon for the first Asian Cup on Australian soil.

“With more than half a million expected to watch the action live, and hundreds of millions more watching on TV around the world, this will be a summer never to forget.

“We have never had anything like it before. The whole country will be buzzing with anticipation at seeing the best Asia has to offer, and whether the Socceroos can lift the trophy for the first time after showing such promise at the World Cup or whether Japan can go back to back and claim a fifth title.”

 

Ed Hollis appointed as new WPL Coach

Tuggeranong United's new Women's Premier League Coach Ed Hollis is one of Canberra's most experienced and respected women's football coaches.  Ed arrives at TUFC after a short break from the game, before which he led the successful Woden Valley WPL program, winning two WPL grand finals and a Federation Cup.

After a long playing career in the lower leagues of Sydney, Ed first started coaching the way many coaches do, when his eldest daughter Ellie began playing as a 6-year-old.  As well as his local coaching Ed has also coached as part of the Coever program in Spain, Japan and Singapore.

Ed's appointment demonstrates the Club's intention to build strong and competitive premier league programs in both men's and women's competitions.  He believes the 2014 squad had the players to be a top four team, but a lack of depth when injuries hit hurt those aspirations dearly.  In 2015 Ed is looking forward to strengthening the squad in a few key areas and his aim is for Tuggeranong United to finish in the top four, whilst still developing the up and coming talent at the club.

Ed is no stranger to TUFC, "I have always admired Tuggeranong teams which always play with great character, teams that never give up and play hard tough football to the very end."

"In the short time I have been involved with the club I have certainly been impressed with the professionalism and management  expertise exhibited all of the club officials I have been in contact with - Tuggeranong certainly appears to be a club that is moving forward  in leaps and bounds."

 

Our night in the spotlight

  

On Tuesday 16th September Australian football came to Tuggeranong, and what a special night it was.  It wasn't the result we dared to dream of on the field, but our players did us proud and put on a great show for the fans.  It was special for so many reasons.  The current players got to play in front of over 5000 people against what is probably the best team in Australia with several current Socceroos.  Our young junior players saw a glimpse of what they can genuinely achieve playing at TUFC and beyond.  We got to show off the Tuggies club spirit that many of us knew was always there.  We promoted existing business partners and made new ones, as well as raising our profile for future sponsors.  Everyone in Australia learnt how to pronounce Tuggeranong!

We have a multitude of thanks to give to many who contributed to making the night successful.  It was by far the largest and most complex event TUFC have ever run.  The Club volunteers who spent countless hours over the past couple of months coordinating our FFA Cup campaign, particularly Jon Thiele and Craig Toole.  The small army of volunteers that rolled up their sleeves as soon as we drew the Victory and especially on the night.  Our Cup partners Priority One Mortgages and Peter Blackshaw Tuggeranong, as well as our existing sponsors The Burns Club, Trussme, The Good Guys Tuggeranong, Canberra Clothing and Accessories, Kingston Physiotherapy  and new partners Gemini Accident Repairs Kingston and Storage King Kambah.  Our corporate visitors from Allhomes, SG Fleet and Bradley Allen Love.  The FFA and Capital Football for their operational support, FoxSports for selecting our match and giving us such a great wrap.  We have inevitably left some groups out and we thank them too.  The Club community pulled together for this event and it was beautiful to see.  Thank you.
