One week to go until Media Owners v Agencies in The Big Clash

Thursday 09 February, 2017

Rival media owners and agency heads will put the media game aside next week, when they take to the field for the return of the “The Big Clash” – a special 20/20 charity cricket match for UnLtd.

While media agency executives usually go in to bat against each other over clients and campaigns, agencies will unite for the day against a team of combined media owners at Sydney University Oval on Thursday 16 February.

Registrations for players and spectators alike are open and everyone is encouraged to dig deeply to donate to the event and secure their tickets. The Big Clash kicks off at 2.00pm with entertainment, food and drinks thrown in. A host of prizes will be up for grabs on the day and each donation gives participants a ticket into the raffle. An auction will also be held with some amazing prizes on offer including a weekend away in Jervis Bay, VIP hospitality tickets to Adele on 10 March valued at $1,200, two nights’ accommodation in South Yarra and much more.
