Why are we wearing pink?

For the fifth consecutive season, the Mariners will dedicate a Hyundai A-League home match to supporting Pink Ribbon Day – an annual initiative organised by Australia’s Cancer Council.

Since 2012 the Mariners have raised almost $70 000 by donning pink jerseys, followed by an online auction of the kits along with bucket collections and other collaborative fundraising initiatives between the Mariners, Cancer Council NSW – Central Coast and Brightfield Group Services.

Who are Brightfield Group Services?

Brightfield are the match day sponsor for Sunday’s game for the third consecutive season!

Brightfield offer flexible, specialist facilities management solutions tailored to each individual client and business – will have their brand re-appear on the Club’s pink kits and team up with the Mariners to help raise awareness and funds towards the prevention of women’s cancer.

Brightfield are also calling on Mariners Members & fans to follow them on social media! If Brightfield can manage 200 followers on Twitter and 200 likes on Facebook they will donate $500 to Cancer Council NSW – Central Coast so make sure you get around them!

Any Mariners or Sydney FC supporter that books a domestic or commercial pest treatment before 31/03/2017, Brightfield Group Services will donate 20% of the Invoiced Price to Cancer Council NSW!

Don your best pink kit!

The Central Coast Mariners, Cancer Council & Brightfield are calling on all Mariners supporters to wear pink in support of women’s cancer research, prevention and support services.
