Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Sunderland Association Football Club and The Nelson Mandela Foundation are delighted to announce a partnership, which is set to be a first for world football.

The partnership aims to help promote the former South African President’s legacy, through the global reach of the Barclays Premier League and complements the current work of SAFC in Africa. Sunderland AFC will be a Legacy Advocate for the Nelson Mandela Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation established in 1999 to support the former South African Presidents’ ongoing engagement in promoting his legacy of social justice outside the purely political arena following his retirement.

Across the next 18 months, Sunderland AFC will support a number of fundraising initiatives on behalf of the Nelson Mandela Foundation, including a Gala dinner planned for later this year. The club has also designated its forthcoming Barclays Premier League game against Manchester United on March 30th 2013 as ‘Nelson Mandela Day’. The game will celebrate the partnership and kick off the initial fundraising drive.
