Guide Dogs Australia will be front and centre at the SCG on Saturday when the Sydney Swans host Port Adelaide.
To celebrate the Swans and QBE’s 30-year partnership, the Guide Dogs Australia logo will be proudly on display as the players prepare for their Round 20 match.
Ahead of their clash with the Power, Sydney Swans players will warm-up in special t-shirts featuring the logos of 11 different charities as well as the No. 30 on the back. The t-shirts will be signed and auctioned to help raise vital funds. QBE Australia chief executive officer Tim Plant said the campaign is about recognising the important work done by those who do so much to support the community.
“QBE’s 30-year partnership with the Sydney Swans has put QBE front and centre at every Swans game,” Plant said.
“In QBE’s Week of Giving we want to celebrate our partnership by showcasing our charity partners, as well as raise some important funds along the way.
“The charity runout t-shirts will be worn by Swans players during the warm-up as well as for the much-anticipated traditional curtain-raiser between the Sydney Swans Legends and QBE brokers.
“We’ll also use the SCG big screens to help raise awareness of these organisations and showcase the important work they do.”
Sydney Swans Managing Director and CEO Andrew Ireland said the Swans are excited to help QBE give back to the community.
“QBE has been part of our Sydney Swans family for the past 30 years. It’s a wonderful milestone that we’re looking forward to celebrating in Round 20 at the SCG,” Ireland said.
“For QBE to use this match to highlight the work of charities speak volumes about the kind of organisation QBE is – they’ve supported us for 30 years and also give to the community through their Foundation and charity work. We’re really looking forward to being part of QBE’s Week of Giving.”
QBE will also host special guests of the charities in a unique match-day experience in the QBE Clubroom at the SCG.
