Coach, Peter Tsekenis, features in Football NSW’s COVID video campaign


Football NSW is set to roll out a campaign by various football representatives urging the community to vaccinate via a special video message.

Head coach of the Marconi Stallions FC, Peter Tsekenis, features in the campaign and can be heard encouraging people to get vaccinated against COVID-19 so we can “do the things we love” sooner.

Joining Tsekenis in the video campaign are a number of other prominent football identities as well including, former NSW Premier and now Football NSW director, Morris Iemma, Mayor of Bankstown City Khal Asfour, former Socceroos coach, Les Schienflug, football presenter, Mariana Rudan, and Football NSW director, Stephanie Brantz.

They all urge people “to give COVID-19 the boot.”

This campaign comes after news emerged that a number of club facilities across the state have been offered as mass and pop-up vaccination hubs to assist with tackling COVID-19 head on in the state.
