GMHBA Stadium to host inaugural Respect Cup

In a matter of days the stadium will be hosting its first Community Event since COVID 19; and it’s a monumental day for many.

There won’t be a 30,000 strong crowd creating a deafening roar.  The pies won’t be hot and the car parks won’t be full but for the Kardinia Park Stadium Trust (Trust), it will be one of our most significant events this year.  Significant for our community and for the message we wish to share.

The Trust is honoured to host the inaugural Respect Cup next Tuesday 2nd March in the lead up to International Women’s Day.  The Respect Cup is a free community event featuring Geelong and Ballarat students.  The males from St Joseph’s College and St Patrick’s will play prior to the feature match between the Sacred Heart College and Loreto College.  On this day, at this iconic stadium, the female match is the marquee match.

We are proud to partner with the participating schools and event partners Leisure Networks, Times News Group and Morris Finance, to spread the important message #choosetochallenge.  Together we are all choosing to challenge inequality, celebrate women’s achievements in sport and help create an inclusive world.

The Trust is committed to challenging the status quo to create an environment that is truly inclusive to all and welcomes diversity.  The Respect Cup represents all this and more.
