‘These players are heroes for our young children’: Bulls unveil Sony Foundation jersey

Macarthur FC is throwing its support behind Sony Foundation Australia with the launch of its 2023 charity kit, to be worn next week.

The Bulls will raise funds for one of the largest Australian youth charities this month by donating proceeds from jersey sales to the Sony Foundation, supporting health and wellbeing programs for children with disabilities.

The pink and navy blue strip will be worn on Sunday March 19 when the Bulls host Melbourne City in Round 21 of the Isuzu UTE A-League at Campbelltown Sports Stadium. Match-worn jerseys will be auctioned with all proceeds going towards Sony Foundation. Macarthur FC is encouraging Bulls fans to support the cause with $20 from sales of Sony Foundation jerseys going towards the organisation.

“To have a team like Macarthur FC wear jerseys in support of children with disability is incredibly powerful,” Sony Foundation Australia chief Sophie Ryan said.

“These players are heroes for our young children, and ambassadors in our community for an inclusive society. We know the fans of Macarthur FC will bid generously to win a limited-edition jersey worn by their favourite Bulls players, and in turn, can feel part of greater social impact knowing these funds will provide a holiday of a lifetime for a child with disability in their community.”

The launch of the kit is the latest step in a long partnership between the Bulls and Sony Foundation, with Macarthur FC players participating in Sony Foundation Holiday Camps and providing youth participants of Sony Foundation with an all-access experience.

“We are proud to partner with an organisation like Sony Foundation which has a major positive impact on the lives of young Australians in need,” Macarthur FC chief executive Sam Krslovic said.

“Funds from every jersey sale will go towards supporting Sony Foundation’s work in the community. We will also be auctioning the players’ match-worn jersey with all sales going directly towards Sony Foundation.”
