Please post in here if you plan on travelling over east for a game or two this season or for those of you already over east whether you plan on coming to any games @ Subi etc.

I reckon this might be the year that I do the trip to Melbourne for a weekend of footy. Only problem is my knowledge of Melbourne is not that good, as whenever I've been there before, I've been pretty much chauffeur-driven around and put up in hotels around various parts of the city at the company's expense.

So a travelling partner who knows their way around would be handy...

I'm hoping to attend my first match at Subiaco against Geelong in round 11. I've never even been to Perth/WA. If all goes to plan i will be in town for 5 days.

Sadly, I have to miss the Brisbane trip this year. I think last year is the only time I have seen a losing game there, so the Gabba has pretty fond memories for me. But I have Sydney and Adelaide (Port) locked in already. And three Perth trips locked in, Hawthorn , Adelaide and Brisbane. I may even sneek over for the North Melbourne game at the last minute if I can squeeze a shift change. Does Geelong count as a trip from Melbourne ?

Gotta keep the freq flyer points up somehow. :D

heaps of easy transport in melbourne so its not that hard to get around without a car. How far in advance can you purchase footy tickets online?

Going to try and get to Brisbane for round one, and if the travel gods are smiling on me, I should get to the shifting surface for the Collingwood match. By the way, how bad did that field look after AC/DC?

For Eagles H&A games in Melb it's probably not necessary to buy game tickets in advance, I would have thought ... maybe good insurance, but if it's anything like Subi games, you can only get them a couple of weeks in advance.

I am pretty sure reserved seats for games in Melbourne go on sale 3 or 4 months before the game,(got front row seats last year for Collingwood v Essendon),and most games involving the Eagles would be walk up on the day,but Collingwood,Carlton or Essendon at Etihad,I would recommend reserved seating.
