Donation and Player Requests

The Central Coast Mariners are proud to support the local coast community. 

We welcome requests, however do ask that you consider all guidelines before submitting your requests. Please note that we do receive a high volume of requests each month, and are unable to assist everyone. A priority will be given to Central Coast Mariners members and supporting businesses, as well as local football clubs and those who contribute to the footballing community on the Central Coast. 

AUTOGRAPH REQUESTS

Due to the thousands of requests the Central Coast Mariners receive each year, under no circumstances will the club accept any item of merchandise to be signed.

Any items that is sent to the club for this purpose may not be returned, and the club takes no responsibility for these items. 

PLAYER APPEARANCE REQUESTS

Players are made available for a limited number of appearances during the season. As there is a high demand for the Mariners players to attend charity events, corporate functions, schools and junior sporting club events, and combined with a demanding training schedule and existing community commitments we cannot guarantee that we will be able to facilitate your request.

Any local football clubs requesting a Player Appearance are to contact their committee, and formally request a player via their Club Ambassador.

All applications must meet the following criteria before being considered:

  • Applications must be submitted in writing at least six (6) weeks prior to the requested date
  • Applications must be on the letterhead of the organisation and accompany the correct Player Request Form.
