Dear Matildas, 

Geelong has opened our hearts to you and now we invite you to enjoy our hospitality. 

With a new stand, our GMHBA Stadium will look magnificent full of 40,000 soccer fans cheering you on for your next Olympic qualifier versus Uzbekistan on February 28. 

We are a famously proud and passionate sport-loving community with thriving girls’ and women’s competitions.  

Your recent World Cup and Olympic qualifying games have inspired a new generation to embrace soccer. Now we want to welcome and thank our heroes in person. 

Geelong is ready to cheer you on Matildas. 

We look forward to seeing you.
