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.

It's a damn fine looking logo that's for sure.

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!

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle

    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.
