THERE will be plenty to play for when Carlton runs out to face Collingwood this Sunday for the 27th Peter Mac Cup.
The two sides will go head at the MCG in Round 18, the Blues looking to defeat the old enemy to take home the cup in a time-honoured tradition.
The Peter Mac Cup is the longest running charity match in VFL/AFL history, the first clash taking place in 1993.
Occurring whenever the two sides meet for a Collingwood home game, the clash aims to raise awareness and funds for Melbourne’s Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
While the record tips in the Blues favour since its inception – 14 wins to the Pies’ 12 – it was the Pies who reclaimed the trophy in 2018.
The Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre is a world leading cancer research, education and treatment centre and Australia’s only public health service solely dedicated to caring for people affected by cancer.
Over 700 researchers are dedicated to lifting the standard of cancer care for all Australians, continuously innovating and conducting research that breaks new ground in cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Bluebaggers can show their support by joining with thousands of Peter Mac supporters who will unite virtually in October for Unite to Fight Cancer.
This event will raise funds for life-saving cancer research and giving hope to all people affected by cancer. Get more info at unitetofightcancer.org.au.
Sunday’s clash kicks off at 3.20pm at the MCG.
