Come see the legendary Reclink Community Cup hit Brisbane as local media face off with local musos in a charity match raising funds for Reclink Australia. The annual match is heading to Brisbane for the second time after becoming a staple in the calendar of sports and music lovers in Melbourne since it kicked off in 1993 to raise money for Reclink Australia’s work with disadvantaged communities.
Games will be held in six capital cities across Australia this year with local teams the Brisbane Lines and the Rocking Horses facing off at Leyshon Park in Yeronga on Sunday July 30th.
This year’s theme is based on the iconic Go-Betweens song and default Brisbane anthem ‘Streets of Your Town’, making this a fitting time to show the rest of the country what Brisbane’s got. There will be plenty of live music on the day as well as footy, so keep your eyes peeled for an announcement soon.
