Following the launch of our 2021 Magic Weekend Shirt, we wanted to fill fans in on the plans around our shirt competition in association with Community Integrated Care.
The competition was launched back in March 2020, just before the beginning of the Pandemic and was open to entrants with autism or learning disabilities, and with the help of Community Integrated Care, an incredible number of young people from across the country took part and put forward their designs.
The reigning Betfred Super League Champions have again teamed up with local charity, St Helens Autism Support, and the leading national social care charity, Community Integrated Care, to deliver this unique project.
Following consultations with all parties and with commitments already being in place around the design of our 2021 Magic shirt, we have amended the prize of the competition, with the winner’s design now being chosen as a Warm-up Shirt to be worn by the players for the Magic Weekend.
This inclusive initiative reflects a long-term commitment by Saints to use the Betfred Super League’s Dacia Magic Weekend event as platform for raising awareness and funds to change the lives of people affected by autism.
The design will be produced in a very small quantity just for the players to use on matchday only and the player-worn garments will then be signed and auctioned after the event to raise further funds for the designated autism charities.
We will publish more details soon on the winning design of the Warm-up Shirt in advance of the Magic Weekend.
