RELIVE THE RIVALRY
Relive the Rivalry is a charity football match played annually between a Tasmanian team made up of former VFL/AFL and past state-wide players againist a Victorian/All-Stars (VAS) team made up of past VFL/AFL players from all-round Australia.
The concept was the devised by Jaimes Wiggins who, after being heavily involved with Football administration, always thought Tasmania deserved its own Legends Game to see some of the stars of the past and also an opportunity for Tasmanian’s to rub shoulders with these greats.
The son of a close friend of Jaimes’s was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy in 2007 and for sometime Jaimes had wanted to raise awareness of this cruel conditiion and hopefully raise some good money for the Tasmanian based charity.
Relive the RIvalry fills both these dreams – a football match and support for Muscular Dystrophy.
The first game was played on Saturday 24th March 2012 at the traditional home of football in Tasmania – North Hobart Oval.
Almost $30,000 has been to donated to Muscular Dystrophy Tasmania along with loads of public awarenesws of the condition.
2016 will be the fifth year and the game will be played on the 15th October.
