Australian A-League club Sydney FC, the current club of Italian and Juventus legend Alessandro del Piero, will be wearing a special one-off “Community Strip” in their next game on Sunday against Brisbane Roar. The shirt was designed by a Sky Blues member and will help raise money for Sydney FC community partner – Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI).
The shirt is mainly white with blue pin stripes and royal blue sleeves. It was designed by Cove member Adam Walter and selected from over 1,000 entries submitted through an adidas miteam facebook competition.
The shirts will be a limited edition and the shirts worn by the players will be auctioned next week through the Sydney FC website.
“The Community Strip is the culmination of a cooperative approach between Sydney FC, adidas, Webjet and CMRI, which is one of the highlights of our 200th Hyundai A-League celebrations,” said Sydney FC CEO Tony Pignata.
“The strips will be sold and auctioned with some of the proceeds going to CMRI, allowing our fans to own a slice of history and help raise money for CMRI, whose scientists are world leaders in the areas of cancer, epilepsy, birth defects and gene therapy.”
