Donation and Player Appearances
Central Coast Mariners players and staff are out in the community every week visiting schools, clubs and communities.
The Central Coast Mariners are proud to be part of our local community, and show their support by attending local events throughout the year.
PLAYER APPEARANCE REQUESTS
To request a player appearance, the Player Request form must be completed in full and returned to the club no later than 6 weeks prior to your event.
Due to the large demand for players to attend local events, along with the training requirements of a professional sporting team, we are not always able to fulfil every request.
All applications must meet the following criteria before being considered:
- Applications need to be in writing at least six (6) weeks prior to the requested date
- Schools must provide documentation as to their support for or involvement in Football
- Where possible, individuals/groups are encouraged to provide documentation as to their support for or involvement in Football
The Player Request form must be completed in full – no incomplete forms will be considered so please check your application before submitting.
To assist with planning, players are not available for appearances:
- On match day or the day before game day
- During players annual leave at the end of season
A very minimal amount of player community appearance time is allocated to weekends, we understand many of our players have families and with a busy training schedule through the week it is important for our players to have personal time.
Should your application be successful, the club will decide which player will attend based on availability. The club cannot accept responsibility for last minute cancellations due to injury/illness.
We thank you for your interest in having a Central Coast Mariners player appear at your event and we appreciate your continued support of the team.
