NRL clubs supporting Special Olympics

Get behind NRL as the Clubs support Special Olympics – grab a special ticket offer for the Special Olympic Cup game played on 10th August 2017 & be one of the first to hear about a sponsorship opportunity for 2018.

You may be aware that the dVT Group have been proud sponsors of Special Olympics Australia for over 9 years, where we have been actively involved in supporting and raising funds for this great initiative.

This makes us very happy to announce that Special Olympics has become the world’s largest sports organization for people with an intellectual disability, with 4.4 million athletes in 170 countries.  We are very grateful to all the individuals and companies who support Special Olympics in many different ways.

In 2012, the dVT Group initiated the Special Olympics Cup which has been played every year since then between the Canterbury Bulldogs and the South Sydney Rabbitohs. The idea behind the Cup is to not only raise the necessary funds but to also increase awareness of the work that Special Olympics do in the community.

So what is the Special Olympics Cup?

NRL heavy weights – South Sydney Rabbitohs and Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs – clash at ANZ Stadium on Thursday, 10 August 2017.  They will be playing for the Special Olympics Cup.  This year marks the 6th edition of the Cup, with Souths holding the advantage at three games to two. The event is proudly supported by ambassadors Tom Burgess from the Rabbitohs and Adam Elliott from the Bulldogs.

In addition to the annual fixture, each club also conducts a mini-Olympics day, where they provide fun sports activities for Special Olympics Australia athletes.

We encourage you to get out to the ground early to see a torch run featuring local police officers and Special Olympics Australia athletes. Volunteers will also be shaking buckets at the ground before the game. We encourage all fans to get out to ANZ Stadium to show their support.

Tickets are available for the game at with a portion of sales going towards supporting this wonderful organisation.
