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 this weekend, 19 years after it was born right here in Melbourne, the much-adored Reclink Community Cup will return for a huge 2022 instalment.

On Sunday, June 19, this year's Cup will transform Victoria Park into a community celebration of epic proportions, as crowds flock to catch the ​​Megahertz (familiar voices from Triple R 102.7FM and PBS 106.7FM) and the Young & Jackson Rockdogs (a team of brave musicians) go head to head.

This year's festivities have been given the theme of 'Let Love Rule', in honour of celebrated Gunditjmara/Bundjalung singer-songwriter Archie Roach AM and one of his best-known songs.

As always, the off-field antics will be plentiful, with a stellar lineup of line tunes courtesy of Cash Savage & The Last Drinks, Ausecuma Beats, Izy, Parsnip and Private Function. At least whichever team loses can drown their sorrows in some top-notch music.

Since its inception here in 1993, the Reclink Community Cup has spawned plenty of interstate versions, now running in Sydney, Adelaide, Fremantle, Hobart, Brisbane and Canberra.
