Event :: Sydney Community Cup

August 10th 2013

2013 Reclink Community Cup


Working in radio can make you real angry. Like when you forget to press the on-air button, or you mispronounce an obscure band name… Over time, this shit can really get to you. The only way we’ve found you can release some of the built up crazy ‘legally’ is in the wonderful world of sport, where a rough tackle equals celebration rather than an AVO.

This method of anger management has proved pretty successful. The studio-sea legs of the Sydney Sailors are steady as she goes and the scurvy-dogs are defending champs… Just sayin’. 

The teams for the aussie rules Sydney 2013 Community Cup may sport some familiar faces from gigs or familiar names from your broadcaster of choice. But despite their differences and insatiable thirst for victory and enemy blood (this shit is insane) they’re all united for a damn good cause.

Reclink provides programs and support for disadvantaged youths, and the gold coin entry to the game will help them continue the good work. The Melbourne version, which the Sydney event is based upon, raised more than $100,000 for the charity this year. Check out more of Reclink’s worthy projects here.
