Gold Coast throw open doors once more
Queensland's richest man, Clive Palmer, has pitched in to aid the state's flood relief efforts by throwing open the gates of Skilled Park for Gold Coast United's A-League match against Newcastle on Saturday week.
In exchange for free entry, club owner and chairman Palmer has asked fans to make donations to assist victims of Queensland's flood crisis.
The entire stadium, also opened up last month for the Coast's match against Central Coast, will be accessible for spectators on January 22.
"What we have witnessed recently in Queensland is almost beyond belief and I'm sure everyone who has been fortunate enough to escape being affected by these floods feels deeply for those who have," said United chief executive Clive Mensink.
Fourth-placed Gold Coast play their next match, against North Queensland, at Skilled Park on Friday night.
