New Major Sponsor - Jaguar CONFIRMED

Recommended Posts

Their foray into formula 1 was not that successful.

Lovely logo though and it's nice to have something on the jumper that people actually know.

Took me years to work out who in the hell SEW were on the Hawks jumper !!

Almost bought one  a couple of years back. Out of the West the luxury cars were going relatively cheaply after the mining boom came to an end.

The F1 team was bought out by Red Bull, so they had part of it right  still use the same factory  

Probably never put in the top $$$’s

but Tom Walkinshaw had huge success

Ever seen inside a Jaguar Dashboard from the 80’s with the top off?

Scary Stuff :)

A mate had an XJ6 for years, she was beautiful to ride in, but a nightmare if the electrics went dodgy!!

C'mon guys, why cant we all just support our new sponsor without the negatives.

I have been waiting for Jaguar to sponsor us just so i have an excuse to buy the worlds best sounding car.  The Jaguar F-Type SVR

I ordered this after the announcement.....

Feast your ears on this little beauty.

 

 

 

Ok, so the claim about ordering this is a total lie, but it sounds epic dunnit??????

Welcome to the MFC Jaguar !!!!

 

575 HP All wheel drive

Their logo and iconic name looks great on the back of our jumpers.  I welcome their coming on board.

I agree beeb but as a car they are ok, Opel build nice cars.  Ford did a much better job of phasing out local production, it helps to have the Mustang. Anyway the Opel sponsorship is moot.

Grateful to all sponsors so welcome Jag, still would have been funny had it been a Range Rover sponsorship.

Would we all have been forced to get constant updates on the club website about the 2013 MFC administration and about how he was right in the end if Rangey had sponsored the club? ;)

Does anyone know the commercial terms?

Great news to have the BOJ sponsor secured prior to Round 1. It shouldn't be difficult, but it has been.

according to some media types, it has to be a minimum 7-figure deal per annum in order to get around the afl's no-compete clause for their official major partner, toyota

so even if it's a one-year deal it's still of a greater value than the i-select deal, which was rumoured to be about $1m for both aflw and afl boj co-major partner sponsorship

I'm pretty sure the captains got cars from AHG. I wonder if they'll get a JAG out of this sponsorship. Incentive to get into the leadership group.

I would imagine it’s not easy to get any company to invest $1m+ per annum in a sponsorship these days.  Well done to MFC.  Hope it turns into a longer term deal.

Yep, can't wait for the "We win, you win" promo. A Jag would look very nice in the car hole next to the Austin-Healey.

Much better than the iSelect orange box.

Could see a few jumpers sold this year ;)

Good news, it's just a shame it's only one year because we need out get out of this cycle of not having a sponsor when retail jumpers are made for the upcoming season.

Practical point of view and it makes good sense, Clint. Overall, I'd like the Club jumper to traditionalise - similar to the earlier days of the 70s and 80s - with advertising if one must to meet the costs associated with footy these days as sponsors do much for our current circumstances. I'd really like to buy a MFC jumper for each of my grandsons to wear (for about 2 years as they will grow out of them so quickly) but as you say, sponsor on, sponser off, new sponsors, old or passed sponsors make this similarly confusing and redundant for such a purpose - and for brand recognition associated with the MFC. Them's the breaks!

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.

    CASEY VS THE AUSSIES by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons played an exhibition match against an Australian Under 19 team at the MCG on Easter Saturday but the game was played with more than half an eye on the fact that whilst their senior counterpart was taking part in their AFL Round 5 game against St Kilda later that afternoon, they also had an assignment just four days later against Richmond.  The team, with 10 AFL Demons, opened strongly and dominated the first half to lead by four goals at the main break before taking most of

    EASTER BUNNIES by George on the Outer

    Easter is supposed to be an occasion of hope, revival and ultimately celebration.  But for the Demon supporters it was none of these as yet again their team was made Easter Bunnies by the Saints. With the exception of Christian Salem, there was not a single winner on the ground.  The danger for the Demons was giving the Saints their own hope and enthusiasm by conceding early goals.  That is exactly what happened in the first quarter, although with some ridiculous frees from the umpires clos

    MARCHING IN by The Oracle

    The most embarrassing loss of the 2018 season (perhaps aside from the Preliminary Final) for Melbourne was the one it suffered in Round 15 against lowly St Kilda. The Demons came into the game as a red hot favourite but were embarrassed by the Saints' speed and willingness to take the contest right up to them for virtually the full four quarters. It was a defeat that they were to bemoan for the remainder of the season. Their arrogance in going into the game and taking an opponent lightly was a c

    RELENTLESS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons returned to the winning list with an emphatic 54 point victory over a limp North Melbourne VFL combination at Casey Fields on Saturday. Smarting from last week’s thrashing at Box Hill, the Demons came out of the blocks intent on redeeming themselves for their embarrassing start to the 2019 campaign.  After a brief early bout of inaccuracy, the goals flowed as a result of relentless pressure applied to the visitors who were constantly forced into error.

    TO A “T” by George on the Outer

    Thursday night football - not something Melbourne FC are accustomed to doing, especially after barely garnering a Friday night game for years. Yet with this opportunity, the Demons soundly beat the Swans at the SCG and put their season back on Track. This was not only a game of mental toughness, since the Demons had so far failed to win a game in 2019 and faced possibly a season ending prospect of 0-4, should they have failed in Sydney.  History was against them, and Buddy Frankli

    SWANSONG by Whispering Jack

    They said that in 2019, the Melbourne Football Club was going to take its game to another level but we were never prepared for the level the club is reaching as it approaches the fourth round of the season holding up the entire AFL ladder in a match that could be its swansong for the year.    We were meant to be premiership contenders, not playing off for a wooden spoon which is what will be the case unless there is a sudden and dramatic turn around in our fortunes!    And whilst there

    A DAY TO FORGET by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons started the 2019 in unimpressive fashion with a 62 point loss to the  Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval. It was a total contrast to their 2018 opening when they monstered the Coburg Lions but the circumstances were entirely different. Twelve months ago, the Demons were able to go into the match with a large contingent of AFL listed players while yesterday, they went into the game with 12 Melbourne players, mostly inexperienced.  They were also hampered by the AFL sc

    2019 IS NOT 2018 by George on the Outer

    Seems like an obvious statement doesn’t it?   Yet the MFC coaching staff/team seem to have forgotten to change their calendars on January 1st. A 3 goal loss against the equal bottom side in the competition and now with a 0-3 record for the current season, it should be obvious that things have changed from 2018.  Not so on the field, as Melbourne continue to play the style which got them to a Preliminary final.   Once again the Demons saw 20 goals scored against them for the game.

    THE NIGHT OF THE TORTOISES by The Oracle

    Friday night sees two clubs of which a great deal was expected in 2019, facing off in the battle of the slow starting tortoises. Both have had calamitous starts to the season and are sitting at 0-2. One of them will, by the end of the evening, be seeing their season slipping away from their grasp.   Both clubs are playing without confidence and without purpose. The Demons, who had the best-performed attack of all clubs last year, managed to convert 73 entries inside their forward 50 metre a

    THE CAT RUN by George on the Outer

    It truly became a “Cat Run” with an 80 point win to the home side, an outcome that had us wondering what happened to the Demons of 2018 when they got to a Preliminary final on the basis of their “brand” of contested football?   Well that part hasn’t changed any, since the likes of Clayton Oliver can win the ball 44 times in a game including 15 clearances, Angus Brayshaw racks up 33 touches with Jack Viney chipping in for 27 of this own.  In the ruck Max Gawn had 53 hitouts on the night, and

    REDEMPTION? by the Oracle

    How much should we be making out of Melbourne’s opening round loss on its home ground against an unfancied team from interstate in Port Adelaide?  The game was barely over before the excuses were coming out that about the lack of preparation of the team, the fact that some players were playing injured or unfit and unable to handle the humidity and the heat, the team’s lack of run and spread, the lack of experience and having too many key players injured or (in the case of Steven May) suspen
