Around 30 babies born at Werribee Mercy Hospital last week have been gifted with membership to the Western United Football Club (WUFC).

The club announced that infants born on Thursday, October 14 would all be offered the opportunity to join the “green and black family” through free baby memberships.

WUFC head coach John Aloisi, Olympians Lachlan Wales and Dylan Pierias and A-League stars Ryan Scott and Ben Garuccio also sent video messages of congratulations to the new parents.

As well, Western United chairman Jason Sourasis welcomed the newest members to the club.

“As a father to two girls under the age of three, I know the joy that the birth of a baby brings,” he said.

“I would like to congratulate the new parents and wish them and their babies all the best.

“Our mission at Western United is for every baby born in the west to be born into the green and black.

“I’m very passionate about geographical tribalism and the togetherness that being part of a football club brings.

“As we start the new season, I want to put the call out to everyone in the west to jump on board the green and black and come with us as we build the future of Australian football.”

Thousands of WUFC fans have already renewed their memberships for the season that is set to kick off on November 20.

Western United will take on Melbourne Victory at the GMHBA Stadium in Geelong for its first home game of the season.

Crowds for the match are expected to be at a 5000 person capacity, with the game to be one of the first live sporting matches to host a crowd outside of the Spring Carnival.

In the meantime, club memberships on offer include platinum, premium, general and active membership as well as a new seven-game membership.

Each of these membership categories will include a complimentary 12-month Paramount+ subscription to ensure fans don’t miss a single minute of the football action.

Memberships are now on sale for the 2021-22 Isuzu A-League Men’s season.
