The teams have been picked, the grass is cut and the industry excitement is building for the biggest Big Clash yet!

The fourth instalment of The Big Clash is bringing the media, marketing and advertising industries together for a game of highly competitive cricket while aiming to raise over $100,000 for UnLtd’s charity partners.

This year, the event is expanding to feature four teams – Media Agencies, Creative Agencies, Media Owners and Technology Firms – and is also launching in Melbourne. Each team is aligned to one of the UnLtd charity partners helping children and young people at risk.

UnLtd CEO Chris Freel said: “What a great way to start 2018. UnLtd exists to bring the industry together to do good, and this event brings this mantra to life. If you haven’t attended before, you have to come down and experience it for yourself.

“With over 50 organisations confirmed to play, this year’s events are going to be fantastic. Where else do you see 12 media agencies all playing on the same team?”

The banter amongst the teams has already started, with PHD’s Mark Coad saying: “With a strong Aussie contingent in our [media agency] line-up, we are very confident of doing what our baggy greens just did to the Poms!”.

ARN’s Rob Atkinson, who will be representing the Media Owners, said: “We’re looking forward to the challenge. It’s great to be supporting such great causes while having a lot of fun at the same time.”

“I’m hoping the pitch does more for the bowlers than the Ashes ones did!”
