DIZZY SMITH CUP
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.

The Emergency Services Match provides an opportunity to raise funds for their selected charity.Throughout bushfires, torrential storms and a global pandemic – we’ve seen the incredible work that our emergency service volunteers do every day to serve and support their communities. This match is a great opportunity to celebrate their ongoing dedication and thank them for all they do.”
