Welcome to the Transplant Australia Football Club
Transplant Australia is excited to announce the creation of a new active initiative for our members and friends – the inaugural Transplant Australia Football Club.
This new venture invites transplant recipients, those awaiting transplant, and donors to join our football team. We’ll compete against other soccer clubs across Australia and possibly the world.
Our aim is to raise awareness for the need of organ donation in Australia and also to highlight the positive lifestyles that can be achieved with the greatest gift, the gift of life, by participating in one of the world’s most loved sports – football – or soccer as we call it in Australia!
Currently we’re forming:
- A Men’s Team (Competitive)
- A Mixed Team (Social / Be Active Group)
Into the future we’d like to establish a competitive junior team and a competitive women’s team as well. However it will be dependent upon on the level of interest and support these initiatives attract. If you’d like to get involved, please let us know.
The club has appointed David Sargeant as Club Coach and Ciaran McSherry as Manager/Assistant Coach.
Our aim is to hold matches in every state commencing in 2016. The first we have lined up are as follows:
- Sydney – 3rd March
- Melbourne – May
- Brisbane – 28th July TBC
- Gold Coast – 6th October
- Italy – 8 Nations Invitational Tournament – October
