ADELAIDE STRIKERS SA BUSHFIRE APPEAL MATCH

To show our support for those affected by the terrible bushfires, SACA has dedicated this match as a major fundraising event for the SA Bushfire Appeal.

We want to raise as much money we can for the appeal and our major partner, People's Choice Credit Union, have opened the batting with an incredible $50,000 donation! They are also challenging the Adelaide Strikers to a huge game on the 26 January by donating for every six, boundary and wicket they get!

SACA and the Adelaide Strikers have also committed to spending $50,000 to assist community cricket clubs in affected areas as part of our bushfire relief support plan.

Keep an eye out during the game for ways to get involved in the fundraising, including a live tally of donations to the appeal.
