Ever wanted to see your favourite bands kick a few goals, and help support a good cause at the same time? For the past 25 years, the Reclink Community Cup has been turning musos into footy players for an annual charity Aussie rules match, with the Melbourne game drawing more than 10,000 people and raising over $100,000 each year. Sydney's been going strong for years too, with the game finally coming to Brisbane in 2016 — and now it's back again for a fourth round.

Come Sunday, July 28, the city's music community will descend upon Enoggera Memorial Park to put their sporting prowess to the test. Two teams will take to the field: The Rocking Horses, featuring players from an array of Brissie acts, and the Brisbane Lines, filled with a crew of journos, industry staff general music-related folks. Members of The Church, Powderfinger, Violent Soho, Dead Letter Circus, YesYou, Sweater Curse, Tape/Off and Flangipanis fall in the first camp this year, while staff from 4ZZZ, the ABC, Double J, street press, Oztix and QMusic will field the opposition team.

Plus, the Community Cup isn't just about getting another dose of the live AFL action, as ace as the prospect of more footy is. Given that rock stars are involved, of course live music is part of the proceedings. And, food-wise, expect food trucks ready to fill your ravenous stomachs. Watching bands play both music and footy is hungry work, after all.

Every dollar raised from ticketing goes towards Reclink's efforts to improve the lives of Queenslanders suffering from disability, homelessness, substance abuse and economic hardship through participation in sport and the arts. Yep, whoever emerges victorious from the game, a heap of deserving folks will be the real winners.
