a payment is made to the ANZAC Day Proceeds Fund in the case of the sport being held within the metropolitan area, or the RSL Patriotic Welfare Fund through the RSL State Branch Headquarters or local sub-branch for sport in country areas.
Clubs should contact their respective peak sporting organisation or association to seek information about submitting a request for the Minister’s approval to play sport on ANZAC Day.
Following consultation with your relevant peak sporting organisation or association, applications for the Minister’s approval should be forwarded by 19 April 2017 to the:
Sport and Recreation Victoria
Department of Health and Human Services
GPO Box 4057
Applicants should consult the local sub-branch of the RSL on the protocols, requirements and appropriate commemorative activities for ANZAC Day.
Sporting events to be held on ANZAC Day that do not charge an admission fee, or seek a donation from spectators, do not require the Minister’s approval. It is still recommended that relevant clubs discuss appropriate commemorative activities that can be incorporated into their ANZAC Day sporting events with their local RSL sub branch.
