Watch the Megahertz and the Rockdogs battle it out for a good cause
Every year since 1993, the Reclink Community Cup sees two teams with questionable footy skills go head-to-head to raise money for Reclink Australia; an organisation that provides sports, recreation and arts programs to some of the country's most disadvantaged people. If you love footy, music and chilled-out fun times, then it's one of the highlights of winter; and for the second year in a row, the event is back on the northside, at Victoria Park in Abbotsford.
So here's the deal: you've got two teams: the Megahertz (made up of radio folk from Triple R and PBS 106.7FM) and the Rockdogs (Aussie musicians). Some are surprisingly skilled, and others not so much – but the main thing is that they put on a bloody great game to watch.
On top of that, the day is packed with live performers. This year get down to the Aints, Cable Ties, the Cartridge Family, Hiatus Kaiyote, Kutcha Edwards and Rudely Interrupted.
Everyone is welcome at this event (which, combining rock and footy, is basically the most Melbourne event ever created) – so bring your family, your dog and get ready to cheer. There'll be plenty of children's activities and food stalls, too.
