It’s back. The annual take-no-prisoners traditional clash between
Triple R 102.7FM / PBS 106.7FM Megahertz and the Rockdogs will be fought out at Elsternwick Park on Sunday 22nd June. This year’s catch-phrase of ‘Such A Perfect Day’ is based on the legendary song by much loved icon Lou Reed who sadly passed away last year. The theme also pays homage to the fact that the event is much loved by both sports loving, fun loving and music loving patrons alike and has been proudly grass roots from its very inception, annually promoting an all inclusive fun day out..... nay a ‘perfect day’.
The footy match between the community broadcasters and the Melbourne rock fraternity remains the centrepiece of the day, but the entire day promises to be huge. Preparations are well underway to make this family friendly fun day out, one for all Melburnians to embrace, and to carry on a tradition that has now been occurring for the past two decades. From what started out as a humble Australian football (AFL) match amongst the music fraternity, it is today an event which last year saw over $100,000 raised and well over 10,000 attend.
Today the Reclink Community Cup is very much part of the Melbourne music and sporting event calendar and in 2014 is proudly supported by Australia Post. Last year for the second year running the match ended in a draw in the final minutes, with both teams finishing on 28 points. Who will take the honour of winning the 2014 Reclink Community Cup? Or controversially, will it be another draw?
The event will raise funds for Reclink Australia, who use sport and the arts to enhance the lives of people experiencing disadvantage and targets some of the community’s most vulnerable and isolated people - those experiencing mental illness, disability, homelessness, substance abuse, addiction, and social and economic hardship. With a network of over 370 member agencies around the country, Reclink Australia encourages participation in physical activity in a population group under-represented in mainstream sport, recreational programs and associations. In the past 12 months Reclink Australia provided more than 110,000 individual opportunities to participate in over 12,000 sport and arts activities around the country.
Food and beverages will be available on the day, and there will be kids activities.
Entry is $10 for adults, and $5 for kids under 16. Stay tuned for more upcoming details.
