Sydney Game at the SCG

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone knows whereabouts at the SCG I should buy tickets if I wanted to be near the Melbourne cheersquad? Which end do they sit up?

Thanks!

It's seems a long time since we played at the SCG. I'm going and wanted some advice about best 

seating for Melbourne supporters. Will general admission do it for me? Went there a long time

ago and had a great time Fantastic atmosphere especially if we win.

If you have an interstate membership, then tickets are free.  I just ordered mine by following the link in an MFC email and they are, as mentioned above, in Bay 2... so I assume this means most Dees supporters will be in that area.

Woohoo - been so long since I’ve caught a Dees game at the SCG.  Just up the road for me....   Getting my complimentary (interstate member) tickets as soon I know who else in my family is coming.  

 

Otherwise if I go to a swans game I go to the alcohol free zone which is a smallish section - then you don’t get peeps squeezing past every 5 minutes to get beers.

I assume you mean you reside in NSW !

I'm heading up also... Looking at tickets at the moment. I prefer to sit up higher so looking at category 2 or 3 in & around the 310-312 bays. $71 for a category 2 ticket does seem a bit steep

Sydney prices - usually costs this much for a ticket to the SCG

When’s the last time we even beat Sydney seems a lifetime ago? Wasn’t back when Bails was coaching and we smashed them by 70 was it: I remember that one don’t remember beating them since....

Yep, 2010. Incredible day at the G back when we could dispatch any non-Vic side at the G by 10 plus goals before copping a loss of a simliar magnitude ourselves the next week.

Closest we've come since then was a draw in 2011.

We're way overdue.

I guess I will be entitled to a ticket as an interstate member. If anyone wants it, (subject to me confirming I can get one) PM me and I'm happy to pass it on. I have a reserved seat there.

And so many times since they've beaten us in scrappy wet games at the G holding us to 5-6 goals, frustrating! About time to get a couple back

Last time I was there Brad Miller played his best game for the club on Hall and Cam Bruce slotted the winning goal. Great to catch up with the cheer squad at Bass Hill caravan park too!

Know wonder, footy in Sydney struggles for attendances.   Rugby League etc.  Who can afford that, week on week ?

I can’t remember when we last won at the SCG. I’m thinking it could be as far back as the 90s. Anyone know? It’s been a hell hole for us for quite a while now. 

In particular, I recall flying back from Hong Kong especially to watch a game at the SCG in about 2010, to sit with all of my Swans supporting mates and watch us get belted by around 100 points.

Round 5, 2003, was also memorable. We were up by about 50 points at three quarter time, and my mate was started singing out ‘percentage’ every time Neita kicked a goal, which was super obnoxious behaviour given we were sitting in the Swans’ members section. We eventually lost that game by about 2 goals. Another sweet experience at the ground for me.

A few years ago, when it was literally pouring, we kicked about 5 goals all day. Only highlights were Christian Petracca and the final siren.

I’m feeling positive year though. Time to break this hoodoo.

We most recently won at the SCG v Swans in R5 2005 and R4 2006.

    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
