What do I need to bring?
There is no grandstand at the venue, and only a few benches to sit on. As a result, we suggest you bring your own folding camping chair to sit on during the day. Please also bring a hat and sunscreen.

I’m Bringing 3, including Me!
As you know, it is going to be a much better experience if we play in front of a decent crowd at the Harmony Cup. We are asking each player and official to bring not only yourself, but 2 other people as well. They can be your parents, partner, kids, mates etc. Remember, it’s free entry to the event. Thanks very much, appreciate your help in making sure we have a great crowd (and great atmosphere) on the day!

Can we bring a team marquee?
Yes. Please remember that, due to Council requirements, marquees can’t be secured just via rope and peg, they need to be weighted down as well.

Is there food & drink on sale?
Yes, the Cranbourne Football Netball Club will be selling food & drinks. The club has bent over backwards to support the event, so please support them throughout the day.

What can I not bring?
Please do not bring any alcohol. The Football Club has a liquor license and you can purchase drinks from the bar during the day.

If you are taking photos and posting on Instagram on the day, it would be great if you could include the hashtags #aflinternational and #harmonycup. Thank you!

What is the weather forecast?
As the Harmony Cup approaches, you can keep an eye on the weather here.

What do I do after my last match?
There will be 3 great grand finals to watch on Field 1, and you can purchase a cold beer from the bar and watch some great footy. Let’s create a great atmosphere for the teams in the finals.
