Reclink Australia Acknowledge Support of Victorian Government for #CommCup22

Following a successful afternoon on Sunday, Reclink Australia would like to acknowledge the commitment of the Victorian Government for ensuring Melbourne’s iconic Reclink Community Cup continues to showcase the best of our live music scene, while supporting the work Reclink does for Australia’s most disadvantaged.

The pre-game formalities at Victoria Park on Sunday featured the announcement of a landmark $100,000 funding boost from the State Government supporting the event’s live music line-up and production costs.

The Victorian Government is supporting Reclink with more than $8.5 million for programs including ActiVIC, which offers opportunities to people experiencing barriers to participating in healthy sport and active recreation; Move the Dial with a focus on engaging young people; and AAA Play, which promotes accessible activities for people with disability.

This funding ensures money raised through the Community Cup can be directed to Reclink’ s important work, while delivering continued support to the state’s live music industry.

It comes on top of the $9 million On The Road Again program, which is bringing a wide range of live music gigs, festivals and events to audiences across Victoria.

Minister for Creative Industries Danny Pearson said:

“The Reclink Community Cup showcases the best of Victoria’s community spirit with music and footy coming together to raise money for a great cause.”

“This new funding ensures that support from Victorians will go to those who need it most, while backing our amazing live music industry.”

Reclink Australia CEO Dave Wells said:

“It was great to be back at Victoria Park for the Reclink Community Cup and re-connect with our fabulous community music and sport family.

Days like we experienced on Sunday are vital for our souls, hearts, health, and minds – and for the work Reclink does with some of the most disadvantaged Victorians.”

Reclink Australia looks forward to continuing to work with the government on ensuring the long-term viability and success of the Community Cup; which ultimately provide life-changing programs and opportunities for disadvantaged members of the Victorian community.
