Macarthur FC fans mark Sunday, November 21 in your calendars because that’s when the Bulls will kick off their second season in the A-League.
The draw for the first six rounds has just been released by the League, and it has the Bulls at home for the season opener.
Macarthur FC will host Wellington Phoenix at Campbelltown Stadium on that date, with a 6pm kickoff.
The Bulls, who have also just unveiled their new kits for season 2021-22, will be away to Sydney FC in round two.
But our boys will be back home at Campbelltown for round three when Macarthur FC will host Central Coast Mariners on Sunday, December 5, with a 4pm kickoff.
The following round the Bulls will head to Parramatta to take on Western Sydney Wanderers, before returning home to host the Newcastle Jets on December 19.
But round six is what will really get Bulls excited and get them cow bells fine tuned.
Campbelltown Stadium will host, for the very first time, a Boxing Day blockbuster when the Bulls clash with Sydney FC on Sunday, December 26 with a 7.45pm kick off.
The Bulls will be sporting their new kit, which was designed in consultation with the club’s apparel partner, leading Italian sportswear manufacturer Macron.
The home jersey draws inspiration from traditional football outfits while honouring the colours synonymous with the region, the classic black and white, says the club.
Touched with ochre piping to highlight the black vertical stripes, the eye-catching pattern incorporates a modern twist with a white slash across the chest.
The club’s away jersey is a bold design featuring a full ochre colour palate, paying homage to the region’s rich indigenous past, as a traditional colour of the local Dharawal Aboriginal people.
“The club engaged with local indigenous representatives when the club colours and identity were formed,’’ the club told the South West Voice in Macarthur.
Both jerseys feature the club’s badge forged from raised silicon, while an embossed bulls head has been pressed into the rear of each jersey.
