The University of Canberra Brumbies will play in a one-off, Anzac Commemorative jersey next Friday when the ACT-based side takes on the Chiefs in an Anzac Day, Super Rugby Final replay at GIO Stadium.
Celebrating the contributions of both Soldier On (Match Day Charity) and the Australian War Memorial, the UC Brumbies strip will feature iconic images on both the front and back of the jersey with the gold trim replaced by sky-blue for one night only.
Available for retail sale through the UC Brumbies Bruce office or at brumbieshq.com.au, the club has already handed out almost 100 of the special edition jerseys and expects plenty more to sell over the next week.
UC Brumbies Merchandise Manager, Kirsty Norwood, said she was excited to be offering UC Brumbies fans an opportunity to take home a part of the club’s history.
“The new strip features iconic imagery from both our Match Day Charity, Soldier on and the Australian War Memorial, so we are pleased to have such a firm link there for our Anzac Day clash with the Chiefs,” Norwood said.
“We’ve had strong feedback from the public and already there have been plenty of people come in and purchase the jerseys.
“Canberra is always the heartbeat of Anzac Day celebrations so it’s nice for the Brumbies to have a tangible link through the jersey.”
The 23 match-day worn jersey from next Friday’s game will be auctioned at the conclusion of the game, with some of the proceeds going towards the UC Brumbies Anzac affiliates.
For retail purchase, the public are encouraged to visit brumbieshq.com.au or come to Brumbies HQ at Bruce:
Trevor Pearcey House,
Fernhill Technology Park, Bruce
The match worn jerseys will be available on auction and open for bids at allbids.com.au.
