C U in green - part 1

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 15 February 2012 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

C U in green! Canberra United fans watch as their team goes on to win this W-League home game.

It was a hot summer's day so the plastic hazard suits and frog costume would have been quite warm!

United went through the season undefeated and thus won the right to host the Grand Final.

Congrats to the United girls. We are proud to see you crowned as women’s football champions for 2011-12!

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Cannot beat crazy fans for some fun photo opportunities. I'm surprised at how many look to have turned out for the game. Is women's football really popular in Oz?

15 Feb 2012 11:26am

@Curly: Small crowds of a few thousand. Playing games in cavernous stadiums does not help. Canberra has the best crowds and fans because our team has a smaller home ground that fosters a real sense of community.

Heinz from Hamm, Germany

Das sind echte Fans. Sehr schönes Foto.
