Sidebottom dropping in

David Lee September 20, 2017

SHEPPARTON footy fans will get the chance to have a beer with Steele Sidebottom at the Murray Football League Grand Final, thanks to Carlton Draught’s Community Cans initiative.

In line with their long history supporting regional footy, Carlton Draught will be creating a Grand Final Front Bar at Murray Football League’s Grand Final match on Saturday to help foster regional footy in Victoria.

The Front Bar will be set up on the side of the field, where footy fans will be able to come in, have a beer and enjoy the game with Collingwood star, Steele Sidebottom.

Head of Classic Brands at Carlton & United Breweries, Tim Ovadia said Carlton Draught was thrilled to be supporting regional footy clubs.

“We’re very excited to be launching this initiative. Football is a huge part of Australian culture, so it’s important that local leagues and clubs are able to grow and thrive.

“We want to ensure that everyone’s coming down to show their support and enjoy the game, but more importantly, we want to deliver assistance where it’s needed and just make playing footy the best experience it can be, which is where our Community Cans initiative comes into play.”

The Front Bar will be up and running at Rumbalara Football Grounds in Shepparton on September 23 for all footy fans at the game to enjoy with proceeds from every Carlton Draught sold being donated to the Murray League.
