Join our pre-game fundraising lunch, which is not just a meal; it’s an opportunity to connect, learn, and be inspired. You’ll be surrounded by fellow supporters all coming together for a common cause, with guest speakers sharing their unique stories and perspectives. The lunch time entertainment will be provided by none other than AFL music legend, Mike Brady (Up There Cazaly)!

This is an excellent opportunity to network and forge new connections with people who share your passion for football, community engagement, and making a difference. 

Then at 2.05pm, you can watch the game from the comfort of our private spectator space. 

Tickets for the game will be available at the gate, and for those who like a bit of excitement and the chance to win incredible prizes, the raffle is not to be missed. With an array of fantastic prizes up for grabs (including a 75″ TV!!), the funds raised will go towards Big Group Hug, making it a win-win! 

It will be a day to come together, have fun, and cheer on the North (or the west) and support Big Group Hug. 

So mark your calendars, gather your family and friends, and join in on the excitement as the Northern Bullants take on the Footscray Bulldogs for an unforgettable day of community, sport, and giving back.
