Melbourne's rockstars will go head to head with the bigwigs of community radio, at the 24th annual Reclink Community Cup. In a dance as old as time — otherwise known as the mid '90s — muso team the Rockdogs will take on the combined forces of PBS, Triple R, SYN FM, 3RPP and 3MBS, aka the Megahertz, in a highly entertaining and heckleworthy game of amateur charity football with a year's worth of bragging rights on the line.
Played at Victoria Park in Abbotsford, proceeds from the Sunday, June 24 match will be donated to Reclink Australia and used to improve the lives of people suffering from disability, homelessness, substance abuse and economic hardship through participation in sport and the arts.
Reigning champs Rockdogs will be looking to keep the cup, while the Megahertz will try to snatch it back. The match will be bookended by a series of live performances by the likes of The Aints!, Cable Ties, The Cartridge Family, Hiatus Kaiyote, Kutcha Edwards and Rudely Interrupted, all of whose musical credentials are a lot more impressive than their footballing ones. Hey, if you want to see professional athletes, go to the MCG.
