What is ‘Oz Football Aid’?

Oz Football Aid Is a charity match involving former footballers and Australian celebrities designed to raise awareness for the nation’s bush fire recovery efforts.

How will Oz Football Aid help fire-affected communities?

Through the profile of the players and celebrities participating in the charity match, Rural Aid, Melbourne City FC and Professional Footballers Australia hope to unite Australia’s football community and fans to rally behind fire-affected communities.

The charity match will raise awareness for public donations to Rural Aid – an Australian charity which provides bush fire and drought assistance to farmers, firefighters, families and their communities affected. 

$2 from each ticket sold to the charity match will be donated to Rural Aid, while a host of other fundraisers will be conducted at the match, including a silent auction for a brand-new Hyundai car.
