In a special initiative, Adelaide United FC will raise awareness of Zoos SA and Adelaide Zoo-s major attraction, Giant Pandas Wang Wang and Funi, at this Friday night-s home game against the Newcastle Jets.

The Reds will display the ‘Panda- logo on the front of the playing shorts for the match to build further awareness and exposure of the Adelaide Zoo and the pandas. Adelaide United FC is proud to bring together two of South Australia-s iconic and most recognised entities which rely on public support.

The initiative is not based on any financial outcome but as a means of exposure and reinforcing Adelaide United-s strategic direction - ‘Our Team, Our State-.

The area on the ‘front of shorts- is a highly visible area on the playing strip which provides Adelaide United with the opportunity to promote a South Australian business for the greater good of the community at large.

Zoos SA through the Adelaide Zoo has been subject to extensive public scrutiny of late. As the pandas are dear to the hearts of South Australians, Adelaide United hopes that this form of promotion encourages more patrons to visit Wang Wang and Funi.

Adelaide United striker Bruce Djite and midfielder Osama Malik made a special visit to the Adelaide Zoo to see the two pandas, the Reds duo delighted to have the opportunity to acknowledge the work of the zoo and raise awareness of the endangered species.

To accentuate Adelaide United-s support of the initiative, following the game the Reds players will sign their playing shorts with the panda logo and they will be auctioned off online with funds going to Zoos SA. This will be a unique item of sporting memorabilia with the funds going to a great cause.
