Reclink Community Cup 2018

Pick a side. Don your colours. Take no prisoners.

Sydney's rockstars will go head to head with the bigwigs of community radio, at the seventh annual Reclink Community Cup. In a dance as old as time — otherwise known as the mid 90s — muso team the Western Wailers will take on local media and radio royalty, aka the Sydney Sailors, in a highly entertaining and heckleworthy game of amateur charity football with a year's worth of bragging rights on the line.

Played at Henson Park in Marrickville, proceeds from the Sunday, August 19 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 the Wailers will be looking to keep the cup, while the Sailors will try to snatch it back. Your local MP Albo will be tossing the coin, and the match will be bookended by a series of live performances by the likes of Scabz and Bachelor Pad — 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 SCG.
