Marong and Mitiamo are fierce competitors in football and netball.
However, both the Panthers and Superoos will band together for the annual Annette Grant Memorial Round.
Each year in memory of Marong life member Annette Grant, who passed away from pancreatic cancer, the club's players don purple socks to raise awareness and funds for research.
Annette Grant's son Andy, current senior football coach of Mitiamo, was proud to see his mother's legacy live on.
"Mum was involved heavily with both Mitiamo and Marong so each year we hold a memorial round," he said.
"Both clubs go above and beyond to embrace the round and when it comes down to it football and netball scores are irrelevant on the day. It's all about raising funds to support pancreatic cancer research so hopefully one day we can find a cure."
Annette Grant served for over a decade on Marong's netball committee in addition to taking on roles as both secretary and treasurer.
On the netball court she coached and played 151 games, which included two premierships and a club best and fairest.
Her name might be a regular on the honour boards at Malone Park, but it was her influence at the club which has been remembered the most.
Andy said despite the round not going ahead in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, interest in the event had been increasing.
"Year by year it's getting bigger and bigger with more funds being raised," he said.
"Social media certainly helps spread the word, but overall it's great to see so many people contribute on the day."
On the day there are several items for sale including scrunchies, Purple 4 Pancreatic Cancer beanies and wristbands with profits going to support PanKind, Australia's peak organisation dedicated to improving outcomes of diagnosed individuals.
From 2pm-6pm there will also be a ladies day which includes cocktails and a grazing table.
The senior football match starts at 2.15pm, while the A-Grade netball clash is off at 3pm.
"The weather might not be that kind to us, but we're looking forward to the challenge of the game," Andy said.
Mitiamo head into the football match undefeated, while Marong are 8-2.
Superoos have shown dominance this season, but will face a strong Panthers side which has won all four games since the season restart by an average of 135 points and kicked 96 goals to 13.
"We're all just excited to get out on the park for a good match and have a great day while remembering mum," Andy said.
