The Adelaide Lightning is an iconic women’s basketball team that competes in the WNBL. The team is one of the most successful in WNBL history winning five Championships. Despite the amazing success on the court, unfortunately, commercial revenue is limited for female sports, especially in non-eastern states, leaving the team short each year of around $500,000. Without your support the Lightning risk not being able to compete in the WNBL beyond the 2019/20 season.
How you can help….
Adelaide Lightning is a club that values inclusion and is a proud member of the South Australian community. We want to be a club that represents the community and give YOU some ownership of the team. For the team to remain sustainable we need the help of the South Australian community. That is why we want you to put your name or your business name on the playing singlet and help keep the women in the building! Losing elite pathways also impacts participation in the sport so you will also be helping to keep young girls active and motivated to stay in the game.
The Adelaide Lightning has partnered with the Australian Sports Foundation so all donations of $2 or more to the Be The Fabric of the Lightning – Put Your Name on the Singlet project are tax-deductible. You can be the fabric of the Adelaide Lightning by making a tax-deductible donation. We will recognize our donor’s names in the design of the regular home playing singlet, so up close you can see your own name and the players will be literally wearing your support. For the design to work, spots on the singlet are strictly limited to the first 1,000 donors who make a voluntary donation of $500 or more.
