Fitzroy Football Club: Great football, Great community, Great culture.

Fitzroy Thirds Fan Day - 27 May


When the Thirds run out in Round 7, they are hoping for a large contingent of die-hard Fitzroy fans to cheer on one of their spiritual leaders in his 200th game.

The boys are expecting a crowd of 200 or more as they focus on traditional fan football for their first Fan Day.

Not to mention it's a celebration of one of their favourite sons, life member and 200-gamer, d-rock (aka Dan Ryan).

Put Saturday 27 May down in your diary and consider heading to Ramsden Street Oval for a bit of old fashioned community footy. The action starts from 11 with the game at 11.40.

Prime mover and Thirds social secretary, Keith Dimech said What's the point of taking spectacular marks and kicking the impossible goal if no one is there to see you do it?

Were well known to be the most entertaining, talented and flashy team at Fitzroy (were thinking he hopes Rory and co dont read the Red Roy), and we want your support to help us take on our traditional rivals The Monash Blues./p>

Keith says the Thirds are embodiment of community and inclusion at Fitzroy and they are keen to show off the bond they have at Ramsden Street.

Wear some red and some blue (and a little bit of gold) and help us as we challenge for the Flag./p>

The Fitzroy Thirds would like to welcome you to our first annual Fan Day! Ramsden Street is an amazing venue for watching football and it will be even better with you, the legendary Fitzroy supporters.strong> 

The big community day at Ramsden Street will include:

  • genuine 1990s tuck shop food and prices (Kerrys BBQ food, coffee and a canteen will also be supplied)
  • meat raffle
  • singing the Fitzroy song before and after the game (theyre confident!)
  • lots of calls of 'BALL'
  • the traditional trip out onto the ground at the quarter breaks to hear the coach's message and a kick on ground after the final siren.

After the game there will be enough time to get back to Brunswick Street for the second half of the Seniorsgame, as they also take on Monash, and the post-match celebrations which promise to be big.
