Betfair To Donate To Bush Fire Appeal

Today, we are announcing that for every match an Australian wins at this years Australian Open, we will donate $500 to help those affected by the bush fires in Australia.

With the guidance of Tennis Australia, we have elected the Red Cross as our charity of choice, pledging $500 to the cause with every win by an Australian in the Men’s Singles and Women’s Singles draws at the Australian Open.

Ash Barty enters the tournament as the #1 seed in the Women’s Singles draw while Nick Kyrigios is seeded in the Men’s Singles draw. With plenty of local hopes, cheer on our Aussies as we look to make a big donation by the end of the tournament.

If you’d like to donate to the Red Cross and the amazing work they are doing to support bush fire affected areas, head here.

Our donation tally will be updated on this page at the end of each day.


We have decided to double our donation.

Final Tally: $18,000
