Local sports clubs’ chance to share in $10,000 in TAB Melbourne Cup Sweep

Greyhound Clubs Victoria, in conjunction with Greyhound Racing Victoria and the Sandown Greyhound Racing Club, has announced a state-wide community sports clubs’ sweep for the next week’s running of the TAB Melbourne Cup at Sandown Park.

The TAB Melbourne Cup is considered the world’s greatest greyhound race, attracting premier greyhounds from all over Australia, all vying for a share in more than $650,000 in prize money.

The community sports clubs’ sweep provides regional greyhound racing clubs an opportunity to partner with their local community sports clubs to provide an engaging and exciting linkage to the world’s greatest greyhound race. 

With heats on Friday, 20 November 2020, regional community sports clubs from across Victoria will have greyhounds in the Melbourne Cup heats randomly allocated to them.  The eight-heat winners will make it through to the TAB Melbourne Cup final.

Clubs whose greyhounds progress to the Final of the TAB Melbourne Cup on Friday, 27 November 2020 will have the chance of winning a share in the $10,000 prize pool (1st $5,000, 2nd $1500, 3rd $1000, 4th-8th $500)

This fantastic initiative is bringing the TAB Melbourne Cup to regions across Victorian and supporting local community groups. 2020 has been a difficult year for Community groups regarding fundraising, and the prize money will go towards their projects in 2021.
