A Showdown of a different kind will take place at Adelaide Oval when cricket and football will unite to raise funds for the SA Bushfire Appeal. Players from both the Adelaide Football Club and Port Adelaide Football Club will join some of cricket’s biggest names in a special T20 cricket match.
The Bushfire T20 Showdown will be held on Sunday, February 2 at 2:30pm with all funds raised going to those affected by the recent and ongoing bushfires in South Australia. All tickets will be sold as general admission: adults $20, children $5 and family tickets $40.
100% of net proceeds from ticketing, catering, sponsorship and all other donations for this match will go to the state’s bushfire appeal, which will raise vital funds for people directly affected by bushfires in Cudlee Creek and on Kangaroo Island.
Port Adelaide players Tom Jonas and Travis Boak and Adelaide players Rory Sloane and Taylor Walker are among the sporting superstars involved in this match, which promises to be an entertaining afternoon for the whole family.
Quotes from Premier of South Australia Steven Marshall:
“It’s incredible to see the continual outpouring of generosity and support from the South Australian community to support those affected by the devastating bushfires.
“Now we have the sporting community banding together to put on what will be a fantastic and entertaining event to raise money for this great cause.
“The show of community spirit has been overwhelming and we will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with those affected and help get them back on their feet.”
Tickets will go on sale through Ticketek at 9am on Tuesday, January 14.
