Sydney FC joins forces with UNICEF

Official release from Sydney FC

Sydney FC has joined global football giants Barcelona and Manchester United in a partnership with UNICEF.

The Sky Blues are set to work alongside UNICEF Australia to help improve child rights in the ever-expanding Asia Pacific Region.

UNICEF is committed to improving child rights all over the world, striving to lower the number of child deaths from preventable diseases from 21,000 a day to zero.

The partnership will kick off this weekend when Sydney FC takes on Wellington Phoenix with UNICEF monthly givers admitted free of charge as a thank you for the work they do in supporting the rights of children and young people all over the world.

Sydney FC has also offered a ticket deal to ALL holders of a foreign passport, who will be able to purchase two tickets for $10 if they take their passport into any Ticketek outlet leading into Saturday night's clash with Wellington Phoenix at the Sydney Football Stadium.

Sydney FC Members will be given two tickets to Saturday night's game as a reward for their loyal support throughout the 2011/12 season and to celebrate the UNICEF partnership.

Sydney FC midfielder Brett Emerton will also join the likes of Lionel Messi, David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Thierry Henry and Dwight Yorke as a UNICEF Ambassador.

UNICEF is the world's most recognised charity organisation and Sydney FC CEO Dirk Melton said the Sky Blues were proud to partner with an organisation globally recognised for its ability to bring about social change.

"UNICEF is the world's largest international children's organisation and Sydney FC is honoured to be partnering with UNICEF to help improve the human rights and health of children all over the Asia Pacific region," said Sydney FC CEO Dirk Melton.

"UNICEF is the sixth Community Partnership undertaken by Sydney FC and, like all of our partnerships, we are committed to making a difference. This allows us to join UNICEF in projects not only within Australia but use football's global reach to help children across the Asia Pacific region."
