It's the iconic charity footy match that sees local musos and radio names battle it out on field in an effort to raise much-needed funds and awareness for disadvantaged Aussies via Reclink Australia. And on Sunday, June 16, 31 years after it was born right here in Melbourne, the much-adored Reclink Community Cup returns for a huge 2024 instalment.

This year's Cup will transform Victoria Park into a community celebration of epic proportions, as a 10,000-strong crowd flocks to catch the ​​Megahertz (familiar voices from Triple R 102.7FM and PBS 106.7FM) and the Rockdogs (a team of brave musicians) go head to head.

As always, the off-field antics will be plentiful, with a stellar lineup of line tunes courtesy of Floodlights, Kaiit, Ross Wilson, Teether & Kuya Neil, The UV Race and Whistle & Trick. At least whichever team loses can drown their sorrows in some top-notch music.

Every dollar raised from ticketing goes towards Reclink's efforts to improve the lives of Victorians 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.

Gates open at 11am, with kickoff at 2.25pm and everything ending at 7pm.
