Anzac Day is quickly approaching and Brisbane Roar is proud this season to be supporting Legacy.
Legacy is a great Australian not-for-profit organisation providing life-changing support for over 43,000 partners and children of veterans who have given their lives or health serving Australia.
Founded in 1923, Legacy has a long and rich history in Australia.
The Roar are joining forces with Legacy for our Anzac Day clash against Melbourne Victory at Moreton Daily Stadium on Monday, 25 April (2:05pm KO). The club will raffle off two signed jerseys for Legacy in support of veterans and their families.
Brisbane Roar will also be providing Legacy and Australian Defence Force members 50% off tickets for the game, and fans attending the game can make a gold coin donation upon entry to the venue.
“Brisbane Roar is thankful for the sacrifices made by our service men and women and we are pleased to be supporting Legacy this season for our Anzac Day match at Moreton Daily Stadium,” Brisbane Roar CEO David Pourre said.
“We are proud and privileged to host an Isuzu UTE A-League game on Anzac Day as we acknowledge and commemorate the past and present service people who dedicate their lives to protecting and serving our great country.
“Legacy is a great Australian charity and the work they undertake is crucial for former Australian Defence Force members and their families.
“We are encouraging Roar fans to get behind the jersey raffle we are running to support Legacy and we hope to see a strong turnout at our Anzac Day match.”
As part of the partnership, Brisbane Roar is excited to be supporting Legacy in its many campaigns and key events throughout the year including Run Army, Canungra Combat Challenge, and Giving Day.
Legacy Brisbane CEO Brendan Cox said the partnership with Brisbane Roar would make a big impact on the lives of veterans’ families who are suffering after the death or injury of their loved one.
“The Brisbane Roar partnership will help us raise awareness as well as much needed funds which is so important after a tough couple of years due to the financial impact of the coronavirus,” Mr Cox said.
“This partnership will help Legacy continue to provide a range of health and social benefits, underpinning our promise to look after the dependants of our fallen or incapacitated veterans.”
