As part of the NRL’s annual Harvey Norman Women in League Round, Lottoland will be giving up their naming rights of the venue to the McGrath Foundation, with the ground becoming McGrath Foundation Stadium for the week.
“This is something really special for us here at Lottoland,” said Lottoland Australia Marketing Director, Mr Matt Brinckley.
“Charitable work is something that is part of our fabric at Lottoland and to be able to partner with one of the hardest working and most successful charities in Australia such as the McGrath Foundation, is really exciting.
“To be in a position to work with the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles community to generate a positive impact on the charity is a wonderful outcome. I encourage all fans of Manly and the NRL to get behind this initiative by turning up to the game.
“As fans, you can all contribute by simply by walking through the gates. We are proud to support another fantastic initiative of the NRL."
The Sea Eagles will wear special Women in League jerseys for this match against the Bulldogs. These jerseys will be available in the coming months for sale to Members and fans in men’s, women’s and kid’s sizes with kid’s jerseys featuring the McGrath Foundation logo across the top back position.
“This is truly a remarkable moment for our Club,” said Sea Eagles CEO – Mr Lyall Gorman.
“We have such an iconic stadium on the Northern Beaches and to change the name to represent something as powerful and as strong as the McGrath Foundation will enable us to have a very special afternoon. We want to align our brand with extraordinary organisations such as these.
Tracy Bevan, McGrath Foundation Ambassador & Director said: “The support of the community is incredibly important to the McGrath Foundation and it’s only through this support that we’re able to continuing placing McGrath Breast Care Nurses in areas that need them most.
“We’re enormously grateful to Lottoland and the Manly Waringah Sea Eagles for supporting us through this initiative,” she continued.
