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

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!

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo
