Hobart United fields strong teams this season

HOBART United Football Club, which is an incorporated not-for-profit organisation founded seven years ago, is going from strength to strength.

This year the club will field a number of teams: men’s div 1, men’s div 1 reserve, women’s div 2, boys under-13s [existing] and new in 2009 women’s div 1, youth under-18s and girls under-14s. Through football, renowned as ‘the world game’ (more commonly known as soccer), the club promotes friendship and builds racial harmony, peace and social integration across communities within Hobart and Brighton areas.

If you are interested to be part of this campaign as a player (men’s or women’s) join us at our training on every Monday and Wednesday at Rugby Park from 6.30pm til 8pm.  Fee for season 2009 is $220 for adults, $180 for youths (aged 14-17) and $80 for juniors (under-13s boys and under-14s girls).

All Hobart United home games will be played at Thompson Oval (Saturdays – for men) and Seymour Oval (Sundays – for women). For more information, you can also log on to club website: www.hobartunited.com

Meanwhile, during this season the club will also be raising the profile of breast cancer through football, in its ‘Score a GOAL against Breast Cancer’ awareness program

The new women’s division one team will wear a brand new pink LEGEA jersey and the reigning men’s division one team will don a pink away LEGEA jersey.

The club will donate $5 for every goal scored by the Women’s and Men’s Division One Team for Season 2009. The club will seek businesses or individuals to sponsor (either by matching the $5 per goal as committed by the club or increase the donation per goal scored) for this awareness campaign.

Throughout the season the community will be able to make a donation by supporting the club barbecue’s, portion of gate takings and other fundraising events. More details will be posted on the website at www.hobartunited.com

All proceeds are being donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation is the only national not-for-profit organisation that is dedicated to supporting and promoting high-quality research into the prevention, detection and treatment of breast cancer.

Initiatives such as the Score a Goal against Breast Cancer make a vital contribution towards allowing the Foundation to continue its work.
