THE exclusion of a $462,000 payment to disgraced former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner in an official Australian document has again come into sharp focus.

AUSSIES Thanasi Kokkinakis and Bernard Tomic have left their mark at the French Open after an epic five-set match which Tomic says he “screwed up”.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter says he can’t be blamed for the corruption scandal engulfing the organisation, claiming he can’t “monitor” every official.

FORMER FIFA vice-president Jack Warner has left a jail in Trinidad by ambulance a day after he was charged in the USA corruption case.

QPR’S Aussie signing Massimo Luongo says the prospect of regular football was the key factor in his decision to snub a move to Premier League side Aston Villa.

Women in Football Function

Our football event is held during the AFL football season. This popular function can be a lunch or dinner depending on our availability. Held in the MCC Committee Room with a capacity of 120, we invite both female and male members as well as their guests.

Dining in the Committee Room is a privilege extended to us each year for this event and an experience not to be missed.

Our function includes canapés on arrival, a specially selected main course with full beverage service, traditional half time footy-fare and a reserved seat on Level 2.

This event provides us the opportunity to showcase the contributions made to football by women across all aspects of the game.

We have wonderful raffle prizes donated by our many supporters to assist with our fundraising efforts and also have door prizes to add to the excitement of the event.

This function sells out every year so please keep a look out for the invite and get in early.
