On Saturday 25th August, at the Sydney Cricket Ground, both Hawthorn and Sydney Swans Football Clubs and their respective playing groups will auction off their match worn guernseys to raise much needed funds for 'Footy for Drought Relief' as a part of Rural Aid Australia’s 'Buy a Bale' campaign.
As a part of 'AFL Footy for Drought Relief', the playing group will wear a unique & limited edition 2018 Away 'Buy a Bale' adidas guernsey in an effort to help support Australia's rural communities and Aussie farmers. Providing tangible resources to drought affected communities – Stock feed, money and volunteers.
Every dollar generated will go directly to Rural Aid Australia’s ‘Buy a Bale’ campaign to fund livestock feed and household essentials for drought affected families and communities in every impacted state. All player, club and relevant stakeholders contracted benefits will be gifted as a part of this project. Across the country there are thousands of farmers who need our help.
All guernseys are match worn*, unwashed, featuring a sublimated player number with authentic individual signed signature in permanent black marker front and back.

This will be the last time this particular away guernsey will be worn.
