Roar making March purple in support of Epilepsy QLD

-

Brisbane Roar will mark International Epilepsy Awareness Day on March 26 when they face second-placed Western United at home.

They’ll use the match to raise awareness for their charity partner, Epilepsy QLD, and epilepsy in general through Epilepsy QLD’s #MakeMarchPurple campaign for 2022.

The Roar and their charity partner are raising awareness for the world’s most common neurological condition, epilepsy.

The club is asking fans to: “Turn it Upside down for Epilepsy! Every 33 minutes a person’s life is turned upside by Epilepsy.”

If fans want to get involved they can post an upside-down photo of themselves on social media using the hashtag #TurnItUpsideDown.

The Roar is also promising “special coloured smoke in The Den”.

A supportive home atmosphere at Moreton Daily Stadium will go a long way for the Roar to regaining the home form that saw them win three matches in a row recently.

Roar coach Warren Moon will hope his side can overcome their mid-week 2-1 loss to league leaders Melbourne City.

Western United are also having a stellar season, hot on the heels of City sitting three points behind in second place.

Saturday’s match gives Moon’s side another chance to show their steel against a top-four opponent and measure their status in the league.

The coach will hope his side can return to their purple patch from earlier in March to finish out the month.

With Saturday’s game being the first in Brisbane’s final 10 games of the season, players and fans alike will hope they can finish the season stronger than they started it.
