Melbourne Victory Managing Director, Caroline Carnegie said she was pleased to have the support of Hejaz Financial Services in one of football’s most incredible stories, and that the presentation of the team in their newly branded jerseys at half time of the Melbourne Victory v Manchester United friendly this coming Friday would be a highlight of the year.
