Melbourne’s Community Cup – a charity Australian Rules football match between Triple R/PBS presenters and local musicians – is headed to Sydney.
The event, which has a 20-year history in Melbourne, will take place in Sydney for the first time on March 18 at Henson Park in Sydenham, home to rugby league team the Newtown Jets. Organisers are now calling for expressions of interests from players, as well as artists who want to perform on the day.
Adrian Panozzo, CEO of Reclink Australia – charity partner of the event since 2009 – said the Community Cup helped raised more than $120,000 for the disadvantaged last year. Taking place at Elsternwick Park, the event attracted more than 12,000 people, with performances by the likes of You Am I and Tumbleweed (full report here).
“The music industry in Melbourne have historically banded together to put on a great event in partnership with Reclink Australia,” he said. “For Sydney, we are looking to bring together the same team format to do battle on the paddock, have fun, and unite a mass crowd in a great cause.”
The Sydney Community Cup website will launch in early February. In the meantime, interested parties should [email](mailto: firstname.lastname@example.org) Kim Carter at Rockstar Management.
