With over 50 companies taking part, this year’s ‘Big Clash’ cricket tournament is set to be the biggest yet.

Now in its fourth year, the annual cricket event brings the media, marketing and advertising industry together for a fun afternoon of cricket, music and entertainment, all while aiming to raise $100,000 for young people at risk.

This year, the first game sees the Techies pitted against the Media Owners, followed by the Creatives against the Media Agencies.

The tournament kicks off this Thursday (8 February) in Sydney, followed by the final leg in Melbourne on Thursday 15 February.

UnLtd is encouraging everyone in the industry to come down on the day to cheer their team, enjoy free drinks and food and to meet some of the UnLtd charity partners for what will be a fun and highly competitive afternoon.
