We will meet at Olympic Park Oval (Collingwoods Training Ground, Next door to AAMI Park) at 10am for a 10.30 start.
Officially official now so an ammended OP for the thread.
Last year’s charity match went down an absolute treat, with everyone keen to make it a regular thing - so here we is!
Should we be able to go ahead with a game this year (ie assuming there are no more restrictions) we will be raising money for Mens Line Australia.
As we know, COVID has hit a lot of people hard over the last 12 months and companies that deliver mental health services are criminally underfunded - these guys do incredible work, so let’s get around them.
Standard of footy: Low, bottom shelf, mega gimp. Think EJ Whitten Legends vibes but without people who used to be good.
(Honestly, just come along. It truly doesn’t matter how unfit/unco/hungover you are, no one cares - it’s heaps of fun.)
Venue: TBC, although Olympic Park is looking the most likely
Time: Team selection at 10am, so get there beforehand if you wanna warm up a bit and dust off the cobwebs. Kick off is at 10:30am.
Clothing: Keep it to white t-shirts/singlets. We’ll hand out bibs to split up the teams. Ditch the footy boots and stick to runners.
Fees: No set amount, just donate whatever you can to MLA here: Donate to our helplines, counselling & mental health services | On the Line
Otherwise, just bring along some cash on the day!
Ring-ins more than welcome. All ages, genders, hair colours, etc are invited. Many pub beers to be had afterwards.
