Sydney FC To Support Bushfire & Drought Appeals


Reigning Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League Champions Sydney FC are throwing their full weight into supporting those affected by the bushfire and drought disasters hitting the country.

Coinciding with the league’s fundraising appeals, the Sky Blues will also set up a series of initiatives to help generate funds for support and give back to the communities that have been hardest hit.

The Sky Blues will launch an online auction featuring some of the best memorabilia from our recent seasons, before hosting a telethon from Sydney FC HQ with the club’s Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League stars manning the phones.

Both of these efforts will then culminate in the Sky Blues’ Westfield W-League clash against Brisbane Roar at Leichhardt Oval on Thursday 16 January (kick off 7:30pm AEDT), with a $2 donation from each ticket sold, and monies being collected by volunteers at the game, being pooled together to support Rural Aid.


All donations will go to Rural Aid who are supporting fire affected farmers, their families and communities.  

Sydney FC Chief Executive Officer Danny Townsend said these initiatives were the least the club could do for those in need.

“Our hearts go out to everyone affected by these tragedies, and as a club we feel it’s our duty to help,” he said.

“We pride ourselves on our community work and these initiatives are the least we can do to give back and support those that also support us.”

Details regarding Sydney FC’s fundraising efforts, the links to donate, and how you can participate will be confirmed later this week. For now, we encourage all Sydney FC Members and fans to visit Rural Aid to donate today.
