AFL Executive General Manager Customer and Commercial Kylie Rogers said it was a great opportunity for fans in New South Wales to enjoy the long weekend and get involved in a special day on the AFL calendar.

“The annual Fight MND Big Freeze match is a favourite on the football calendar, and whilst we’re unable to hold the match at the MCG, it’s great to have the support of the NSW Government to host the match at the SCG and give people in NSW the opportunity to share in the fun and excitement that the Big Freeze match brings,” Ms Rogers said. 

“There’s a number of great ticketing packages for the whole family, so there is no better time to grab your friends and family put on a Big Freeze beanie and secure your tickets to the Big Freeze match over the Queen’s Birthday holiday.

“The iconic blue Big Freeze beanies are synonymous with the Queen’s Birthday clash, so I’m looking forward to seeing the SCG painted blue as fans and the wider football industry continues to support Neale Daniher and the tremendous work Fight MND do to find a cure for this disease.”
