Green will be the colour when Dennington meets Nirranda to play for the Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Warrnambool Cup on Saturday.
It's the second year the clubs have played to raise money to find a cure for muscular dystrophy.
The fundraiser at Dennington Recreation Reserve has been organised by Blues past player Ashley Gillin and Dogs past player Tom Brady who used to play against each other.
"Last year we played at Nirranda and it came home with the goods so it's Dennington's turn this year to have a go on its home turf," Gillin said.
Football and netball teams will don green laces to help raise awareness for muscular dystrophy with funds going to the Save Our Sons Duchenne Foundation and Muscular Dystrophy Australia.
Green shoe laces, stickers, loom bands and knitted beanies will also be for sale at the match on Saturday.
Gillin's sons Chris and Aaron are famous around the region for starting the green laces campaign in 2016.
Gillin said players from all grades would compete for the MDA Warrnambool Cup.
"Whoever has the most wins on the day takes the cup home," he said.
The green laces campaign has been embraced by many teams in the community and started off as a match between Warrnambool and Camperdown in 2016.
Gillin, who does maintenance work at Brauer College, said it was great to see the community support the campaign.
"It's amazing going around to different venues, like the speedway, and you see people walking around with them (the laces)," he said.
"You get a buzz out of seeing that."
Gillin, a former back pocket, said he enjoyed some success when he played with the Blues.
"I played with Nirranda in late '80s and won a reserve flag and that was my highlight," he said.
"I had a knee operation and came back for the last six games in the reserves and I stayed there and played in the reserves flag."
He also played under 18s football for Deakin.
He said that a knee injury ended his playing career at 22 but he has been a trainer with Warrnambool Football Club in the Hampden league for the past 20 years.
Despite his knee injury, Gillin has given a variety of sports a go.
"You name it, I played it," he said with a smile.
The long list includes basketball, netball, football, volleyball, tennis and golf.
Gillin and his wife Mandy also encouraged their boys to get involved in sport and indoor cricket was a favourite.
He said Chris also collected stats for the Warrnambool senior footy coach about 15 years ago.
Chris told The Standard earlier this year that his mum and dad brought them up to "enjoy every day and live each day to the fullest".
It shapes up as a great day of football and netball with both Dennington and Nirranda chasing their first wins in the senior footy.
The netball grand final rematch between the Dogs and the Blues is touted as the match of the round.
