HOT FM and Wild Turkey Bourbon

Hot FM and Wild Turkey Bourbon have joined forces to give over 18’s Aussie sports teams the bird with the inaugural ‘The Turkey 10’ season now offering ten local teams a shot at the big time via Southern Cross Austereo’s national radio network of Triple M

‘The Turkey 10’ involves an on-air hunt for grassroots sporting teams that may not sit on top of the results ladder but have spirit, guts, flair and strength of character – and are not afraid to show it.

Rhys Holleran, CEO for Southern Cross Austereo said,


Campari Australia’s Regional Director, Shane Richardson

, the Turkey 10 presents an outstanding opportunity for over 18’s local sporting teams to have the chance to feel like they are part of the ‘big league’.

"Many local teams struggle to get the support they need to help their team achieve greatness. In conjunction with Triple M, we are excited to be able to offer this fantastic opportunity to a number of

local sporting teams. The final Turkey 10 teams will have the unique experience of gaining access to a number of Australian sporting legends and sporting professionals to assist them throughout the season. In addition to the sponsorship package, we also have a couple of ‘surprises’ for a few of the lucky teams who make the final Turkey 10.

"We encourage all local over 18’s teams to enter for their chance to be part of this extraordinary opportunity," Mr Richardson added.

Hot FM and Wild Turkey are calling out for entries via the national Southern Cross Austereo metro radio network of Triple M (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide) and Mix (Perth) plus Triple M Localworks regionally.

Over 18’s teams in any sport are urged to head to to submit a video pumping up their local club as the best choice to be included in the coveted ‘The Turkey 10’ – entries close Sunday April 15.

According to

Brazen teams that earn their way into ‘The Turkey 10’ will receive a $10,000 sponsorship package in addition to encouragement on the field and on-air from local radio celebrities, ex-players and additional sporting experts. There will be Turkey 10 merchandise, BBQ’s, Ipads to relay video content and an end of season celebration – everything that a sports team could desire.
