THE West Coast Wolverines will go blue for autism awareness on December 21.

The club’s three gridiron squads will host the Perth Broncos for its first Autism Awareness Round to raise funds for the Autism Association of WA.

The under-19s will take to the field at Warrandyte Park in Craigie from 3pm, followed by the women’s team at 5pm and men’s team at 7pm.

“This is a cause close to our hearts at the Wolverines and especially myself as my four-year-old son has autism,” sponsorship manager James Szysz said.

The charity day will include limited edition merchandise such as T-shirts, singlets, wristbands, pins and sensory balls, and raffles.

Mr Szysz said the club expected at least 120 players as well as representatives from the Autism Association and other support groups in Perth.
