WATERFORD FC have revealed their new jerseys with a logo supporting the campaign for round-the-clock cardiac care services in the city.
They wore them for the first time on Friday when they played Bohemians at the RSC.
General Manager Jack Power told RTÉ News that the Blues didn’t want to sell their jersey space short.
“We said, look, we’re going to take a different direction this year and we’re going to do a bit of goodwill and the cardiac campaign took our eye,” he said.
we’re looking after the town as well as the soccer club
The reaction has been “very positive” from the footballing public across the South East, he said. “I think it’s great now for people to see that we’re looking after the town as well as the soccer club.”
The move has been given the all-clear by the FAI. It bans political slogans but the cardiac care campaign is not considered political.
