The Brumbies hope to triple home crowd numbers for their next Super Rugby home game!
They hope to get 15,000 people at GIO Stadium for their clash against the Sunwolves on June 3 – as part of a new charity initiative.
If they reach those numbers, the club will donate $15,000 to Lifeline Canberra, OzHarvest and Give Me Five for Kids – with each to get $5000.
Our guys had just over 5000 people at their most recent home game against the Rebels earlier this month.
“We recognise this is a challenge and to succeed we need your support, and we ask you to encourage your friends and families to do the same,” CEO Michael Thomson said.
“We are hoping all of Canberra and Southern NSW get behind this initiative and come out to our afternoon game on 3 June.”
Brumbies hooker Josh Mann-Rea said the guys are looking forward to playing in front of a big home crowd.
“It would be great to see as many families and fans at the afternoon game against the Sunwolves. 15 for 15 is a great initiative to support our region, local charities and getting behind the boys,” he said.
Let’s get behind our team Canberra! Make sure you head to GIO Stadium on June 3 to cheer on the Brumbies and show your support!
