DRAGON’S JOIN THE BATTLE TO END HOMELESSNESS ON THE COAST
Gosford City Football Club is delighted to announce a ground-breaking new partnership with Coast Shelter.
The club is immensely proud that it will be the first-ever club Central Coast club to carry the name of a local charity on the front of its’ Men’s Premier League shirts for season 2016.
The partnership offers the opportunity to raise greater awareness for Coast Shelter, rather than selling the front of shirt rights to a traditional corporate partner.
Gosford City Football Club President Col Seggie believes that the partnership with Coast Shelter is reflective of the clubs push to provide social development benefits to the wider community.
“The partnership with Coast Shelter is a result of our clubs commitment to creating a club that our players and members can be proud of, a club that demonstrates humility and respect and is driven to succeed on and off the pitch,” Seggie said.
“We are devoted to providing opportunities for players and community members to be involved in our great club, including programs to assist those experiencing financial hardship. These values are shared by Coast Shelter who provides services which are essential in assisting those experiencing financial hardship, and we are delighted to provide our assistance in helping Coast Shelter to end homelessness on the Central Coast,” Seggie continued.
“Gosford City Football Club is a not-for-profit club and although forgoing a traditional corporate partner as our front of shirt sponsor will result in the club taking a financial hit, we believe that it is our obligation to play an active role in the community in which we operate,” Seggie concluded. This landmark collaboration will raise greater awareness for the programs and services offered by Coast Shelter, as well as providing opportunities for Gosford City Football Club members to raise much needed funds for the organisation and the people they service.
Coast Shelter CEO Laurie Maher was thankful of Gosford City Football Club and its support of the local community. “It is indicative of the wonderful sense of community spirit here on the Central Coast. It is a fantastic show of support from the Club and we are so honoured to be involved in the partnership,” Maher said.
Gosford City Football Club kick off their 2016 Battlewin Premier League campaign with a grand final rematch against The Entrance Football Club on Sunday 3rd April at Pat Morley Oval.
