Sydney FC – kicking goals for medical research

Fifteen men took their shirts off in the name of genetic research and we just wanted to say a big thank you!

Sydney FC raised more than $10,000 to support CMRI at their annual shirt auction.

The specially designed jerseys were worn by the team in their 2-1 win over Brisbane Roar earlier this year.

The number 10 shirt worn by striker Alessandro Del Piero, who scored the first goal of the game, raised the most money with a bid of $4,800, followed by Brett Emerton’s number seven shirt, which sold for $1,420.

“The amount of money raised was excellent and to know it will benefit a truly magnificent cause makes it all worthwhile,” Sydney FC Executive Tony Pignata said.

All of the one-off shirts were signed by the players after the game.

Del Piero – $4,800.00                                                Antonis – $730.00
