The Code joins the Central Coast Mariners as they embark on the most anticipated season of A-League football in its eight year history. Over-shadowed commercially by the high-price purchases of their closest geographical rivals, the Mariners venture headfirst into the season as defending minor-premiers. But their best kept secret – the Yellow Army of supporters and the ‘marquee’ fan base – may be enough to pull the community-centric team through the challenges of the season and emerge at the summit of A-League success.
The cameras follow three sets of fans, all of whom have a unique approach to their beloved Mariners and the match day experience. A young family, two wise old friends and the coaches wives are under the fan spotlight, as they talk through their relationship with football. We watch as all three live through a tense encounter with Adelaide United. As the finals series approaches, the team must handle the challenges of suspension, injury and the additional games of the Asian Championship League. At the club, the Youth team are setting their sights on the Youth title – the club’s development program is the envy of the league and as such is well admired and well supported. The game against the Wellington Phoenix produces a vintage performance.
