2011 Community Cup

The best AFL game in Melbourne isn’t about footy at all.

Each year the 2011 Community Cup brings together local musicians and community radio broadcasters to raise money for charity by playing a football match. While this might not sound all that exciting, very little attention is really given to the game at all. Instead it’s all about the bands, streakers and Mountain Goat beer.

This year’s bands are Tumbleweed, You Am I, The Mercy Kills and The Rebelles, and each one will be performing a Nick Cave song during their set.

If you want to watch a game of footy, drink beer and watch bands for a good cause, head to the Elsternwick Oval on 26 June. Also, there’s a high possibility Tim Rogers will be wearing footy shorts. If that doesn’t convince you, I don’t know what will.
