Canberra United are delighted to welcome Gift of Lift to the family after the organisation committed to become Back of Shorts Partner for the 2023/2024 Liberty A-League season.

“We are delighted that Gift of Life have joined the Canberra United family as Back of Shorts partner for the forthcoming Liberty A-League campaign,” Capital Football Chairman, Angelo Konstantinou, said of the announcement.
“They are a vital organisation in Australia, providing community awareness via major events and activities during the year. We are hoping that our partnership can assist this drive to create even more awareness about the important role they play.”

“We would encourage the fans of the club to take the next step and register to be an organ and tissue donor and have the conversation with your family.”
