The Boort Legends Game

slide01
Welcome to the official website of the most epic event in the history of all things legendary – the Boort Legends Game.

From all corners of the globe, the team mates of yester-year are coming home to show us how it’s done. You’re not gonna want to miss this! Roll up roll up Boort locals, because the boys are back in town!

The count- down begins. Set to tear up the turf on Sunday 3rd May 2015 this footy match will be played at the Boort Football ground in country Victoria. Past players from the Boort Football Club will be making their way back home to ‘dust off the footy boots’ and play against old mates. This flash-back event will not only be the sporting event of the year, but also raise much needed funds for the local hospital.

Why a Legends Game?

Many people move away from Boort to start new journeys, but no one ever forgets where they came from. This Legend’s Game brings the community back together again to reconnect and celebrate.
The Legends Game will work to promote:

• Community building
• Local family fun
• Local hospital support
• Reconnection with the town and people you grew up with
• Healthy competition and sportsmanship
• Leadership and integrity – because everyone is capable of making a difference
