Here’s How To Be A Part Of Sydney’s First Ever FightMND Big Freeze Clash

The long weekend in Sydney is about to get a whole lot more exciting thanks to two huge AFL matches. 

If you're looking to kick your long weekend off with a bang, the Sydney Swans will take on Hawthorn at 7.50pm this Friday night. The best part is you can score four adult tickets for just $99* using the promo code FRIENDS (*conditions apply). At less than $25 a pop, this one’s a no-brainer. 

But perhaps the most exciting part of the long weekend is the fact that for the first time ever, FightMND’s Big Freeze is being played in Sydney. 

If you’re unfamiliar, FightMND is a not-for-profit charity co-founded by former Essendon great, Neale Daniher, shortly after he was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in 2013. The charity aims to raise awareness of the disease within Australia in the hopes it can lead to both better care for those affected by MND and increase funding for vital research into finding a cure. 

This Sydney first sporting experience serves as a great opportunity for fans in New South Wales to get involved in what is an incredibly special day on the 2021 Toyota AFL Premiership Season calendar. Join the crowd full of blue beanies at the SCG on Monday afternoon to support Neale Daniher’s fight against motor neurone disease and see the Melbourne Demons taking on the Collingwood Magpies in Nathan Buckley's final match as their coach.
