The "Dizzy" Smith Cup
Join us for the Annual Police Fire and Ambulance Charity Football Games. Vehicles from all services on display during the day. Food and Drinks available.
Dizzy Smith Cup - men’s game between MFB/CFA and Victoria Police
Emergency Services Cup between MFB/CFA, Victoria Police and Ambulance Victoria.
The day starts with the men's game between the MFB/CFA and Victoria Police at 12pm.
Following that at 2:15pm the Emergency Services women's game consisting of teams from Victoria Police, Ambulance Victoria and the MFB/CFA.
Both the games will be played at Benteigh Recreation Reserve, Arthur St Bentleigh. Will be a cracker of a day!!
This game is a great opportunity for emergency responders from all agencies to come together and help support the community they work so hard to protect.
The first ever women’s match was a historical occasion for the state’s emergency services and we know it will go from strength-to-strength as the teams mature in years to come.
MFB has a proud tradition of digging deep to support the community and we have no doubt a bit of friendly rivalry between the services will go a long way.

Over the past decade the event has raised more than $80,000 for various charities including Reclink, The Light House Foundation, Royal Children’s Hospital, St Mary’s House of Welcome and the EJ Whitten Foundation.
