Big League partners with the NBCF

Big League, the official magazine of the Telstra Premiership, will this week donate 10 cents from every copy sold to the National Breast Cancer Foundation as part of its support for the One Community Harvey Norman Women in League Round.

The Round 14 Big League magazine, featuring ‘Pink Panther’ Petero Civoniceva on the cover, is on sale now at newsagents and will be available at each Telstra Premiership game.

“Big League has always been a valuable information source for fans and its support of the Women in League Round and the National Breast Cancer Foundation reflects the magazine’s commitment to the game,” NRL Director, Community Relations, Trish Crews said.

“It is the first time ever the magazine has donated money from its sales and it reflects how important it is that we pay tribute to the tens of thousands of women who play vital roles in the game from grassroots level through to the Telstra Premiership.”

As the build-up to the Women in League Round continues, today in Brisbane more than 180 women will gather for the Harvey Norman Women In League luncheon at Customs House.

It follows on from successful functions in Melbourne and Sydney with the fourth and final Harvey Norman Women in League function to be held on the Central Coast on June 17 with the NSW Aussie Blues squad among the guests attending.

Other initiatives this round include:

- The Panthers wearing pink on-field kit and the Dragons’ traditional red V going pink. The clubs will auction every jersey for the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the Joanne MacKay Breast Cancer Foundation respectively;

- Pink match balls in every match except the Panthers v Sea Eagles (the colour of the jerseys on the day makes their use impractical);

- The pink footballs will be signed by each team and auctioned off by the NRL, with all funds raised going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation; and

- The video referee’s board featuring pink LED themed images.
