Melbourne Heart opened its pre-season account in Shepparton on July 25, giving the Greater Shepparton community a taste of A-League football during the off-season break.

The Club was made welcome in Shepparton and the local community opened its arms the Red and White, with nearly 3000 spectators turning out to watch the friendly hit out against a GNEFA All Stars team.
