Young Launceston soccer fan Jordan Enright hit the target when his favourite sport came to town.
With Tasmania set to host A-League fixtures for the first time in seven years, the 13-year-old made sure he was front of the queue for tickets.
"We bought a festival of football pass and apparently were the first to do that so they came and delivered some goodies," explained Jordan's dad, Brian.
Jordan, a St Patrick's College student who plays under-15s for Launceston City Devils, was delighted when United defender Ivan Vujica turned up to deliver the pass plus a bundle of club goodies including a signed shirt.
"He was absolutely rapt when he got all the stuff and thrilled to meet an A-League player," Brian added.
"He's been playing soccer since he was six and absolutely loves it.
"We go to Melbourne and watch Victory and City games but he has not been able to see Western United yet because of COVID so he was champing at the bit to go and see them.
"This will be a highlight of his year to be able to go to these two games. If they are taking the time to come down to Tassie it's great to support them."
United, which joined the national competition in 2019, will play Central Coast Mariners on Saturday and Wellington Phoenix five days later at UTAS Stadium.
