News HFCA's Melbourne supporters join our annual Collingwood Rotary Fair Play fundraiser

The Collingwood Rotary Fair Play community football tournament was launched in March 2007 and HFCA were delighted to organise the 18th version in Clifton Hill, Melbourne.

Local teams with underprivileged youth representing Richmond, Collingwood and Fitzroy public housing estates took part alongside teams from Ivanhoe Grammar School and many more.

''The Rotary Club of Collingwood is proud of its association with the Fair Play competition.  Fair Play brings together young sportsmen and women from all walks of life in a friendly, but spirited competition.  As they all get to play several games they get the opportunity to mingle with each other between games and watch how their competitors play.''
Bruce Shaw, Collingwood Rotary President
