There’s no doubt about it. Footy brings people together. And Sunday’s MAIN Game was no exception.

There was a wonderful community spirit among the 300+ crowd as they cheered on the Rockatoos and the Radio Galahs at the historic Camp Reserve in Castlemaine for MainFM’s annual footy match fundraiser.

The game didn’t disappoint, with both teams going head to head for a close finish. Reubin Williams from the Rockatoos sealed the deal with a set shot in the last quarter to win by 10 points, the first victory for the side since both teams first met in 2018.

After a two-year hiatus, the MAIN Game was a huge success for local radio station, 94.9 MainFM, and comes off the back of a successful music festival fundraiser, REVIVAL, held in April.

As a not-for-profit community organisation, the station now prepares for its annual subscriber drive, Radiothon – Radio Recharge, from June 17-25. Proceeds from all fundraising initiatives go towards keeping the station on the airwaves. Visit to pledge your support.
