The Perth Reclink Community Cup is back

Thursday 19 July, 2018

WA musicians to face off against community radio for fourth year. 

The Reclink Community Cup Aussie Rules football charity match that pits musicians against community radio, is back for its fourth year in WA.

This year's local edition, The Perth Reclink Community Cup will feature the Bandgropers vs The Newshounds taking to the hollowed grounds of Fremantle Oval, Sunday September 9th.

From its humble pub-led beginnings, the event is now a hugely successful event on Melbourne's annual musical (and sporting) calendar.

The Community Cups' achievements are now being replicated around the country, with community radio stations and local media in each state going head to head with local musicians in a family-friendly day of grassroots football and live music.

"The Reclink Community Cup is the one day of the year when Perth's community radio and local musicians, everyday people, connect and come together to help Reclink Australia raise much needed funds that enable us to deliver sport, recreation and arts programs, which make a huge difference to the lives of the neediest in our community." said John Ballis, CEO, Reclink Australia.

The Bandgropers will feature Tenille Elkins (Elk Bell, APRA AMCOS) and Leon Ewing (Beaverloop, Sonnenmasse), while The Newshounds
will be led by current WA Treasurer and football tragic Hon Ben Wyatt MLA and RTRFM presenter Marnie Richardson. 

The Bandgropers squad includes musicians from Sugar Army, The Tommyhawks, FOAM, The Love Junkies, Little Lord Street Band, Scalphunter and others.

The star-studded Newshounds include media identities from RTRFMABC,Channel 10, Channel 9, Noongar Radio, The Music and Xpress Magazine.

All profit for the events go to Reclink Australia, who use sport and the arts to enhance the lives of people experiencing disadvantage. Reclink supports some of the community's most vulnerable and isolated people – those experiencing mental illness, disability, homelessness, substance abuse, addiction and social and economic hardship.

Sunday 9th September, Fremantle Oval, Fremantle.
Full band lineup and sponsors to be announced in the coming weeks.
Gates open 12pm, No BYO.
