It's that glorious time of the season again, when the tinnies, chants and team colours come out for the Reclink Community Cup. For just five bucks, you get to watch musicians and media types lay their mics and guitars aside for an afternoon, as they engage in a serious match of Aussie Rules.
The Cup has been running in Melbourne for 21 years and, on August 2, hits Sydney for the fourth year running. For the past three years, the journos, whose team is named the Sydney Sailors, have ruled supreme over the musos, aka the Western Walers.
All money raised goes to Reclink Australia, a not-for-profit that uses sport and the arts to assist disadvantaged people. Their clients include those experiencing mental illness, disability, homelessness, substance abuse, addiction, and social and economic hardship. During the past year alone, Reclink's 300 member agencies, dotted all over the country, have brought more than 10,000 sport and arts activities to more than 100,000 people.
Food and drinks will be available onsite, to keep you fuelled for heckling.
