Cricket and football unite for Bushfire T20 Showdown 🏏
A Showdown of a different kind will take place at Adelaide Oval on Sunday, 2 February 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.
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.
We are honoured to host this great initiative for such an important cause, which brings together cricket and football in one of the most legendary rivalries in South Australian sport – the Showdown!
Like everyone witnessing these tragic events unfold, we have been wanting to do something meaningful to help. This event is something we hope will bring the whole community together to raise money and support for those affected by the devastating bushfires.
Further information about how you can donate time worked on the event day or alternatively a dollar amount, will be provided in the coming days.
We hope to see you all there!
Tickets to the Bushfire T20 Showdown will go on sale Tuesday, 14 January at 9:00am through Ticketek.
All tickets will be sold as general admission tickets and will be priced at $20 for adults, $5 for kids (14 years and under) and $40 for families (2 adults, 2 kids).
The State Government has also announced that it will be providing free public transport to all those attending the match.
