What are you doing this Friday night?
Nothing? Not Sure? Undecided?
We’ve found five reasons why you need to spend it at AAMI Park with us.
1. The best game day experience in Australia
Imagine this – 10 minutes before kick-off the lights go out. 20,000 people suddenly cast into total darkness. They then start to stand on their feet, cheering at the top of their lungs as anticipation and atmosphere reaches fever pitch around the stadium. Then in a blaze of fireworks and flashing lights your Melbourne Storm emerges out of the tunnel, lead by their captain Cameron Smith. 80 minutes of blistering rugby league action follows with a half-time show thrown in for an added dose of entertainment. If you’ve never been to a Storm game, you are seriously missing out. It is an experience that stacks up with the best in world sport, check it out it for yourself.
2. The only way to whet your sporting appetite
If you’re a sports fan in Melbourne what else are you going to do this Friday night? The MCG is empty, Docklands is a ghost town and every other sport is in their winter hibernation. But for Melbourne Storm things are just getting started. If this city is Australia’s sporting capital then AAMI Park will be its epicenter on Friday night. So if you’re looking for a reason to get off your seat, cheer loudly and help prove why our city’s sports fans dwarf those in Brisbane and Sydney, follow the purple lights and head to AAMI Park to cheer on the boys against the Broncos.
3. Up close. In your face. Action
Forget big grandstands where you are 50 metres away from the play and trying to watch the game without succumbing to your fear of heights. At AAMI Park there is no such thing as a best seat in the house, they all are. Whether you are on the bottom level, top level, sideline or behind the uprights, you’re never far from the action. See Cooper Cronk kick a field goal, Cameron Smith convert from the sideline or Suliasi Vunivalu leap over four blokes to take a hanger. At our ground the action follows you wherever you go, make sure you don’t miss out.
4. Silverware up for grabs
A Storm win on Friday night means a piece of silverware for our Club. Melbourne needs just one more win to secure the 2016 minor premiership and the boys are aiming to do that against the Broncos. Should they succeed it will be the Club’s fifth first-placed finish in the last 11 seasons. What better excuse to come along and support the only team in Melbourne as we chase for a place in the history books.
5. Support the greatest rugby league team in the world
No other rugby league team has been as consistent for as long as Melbourne Storm. They boys represent this city with pride week in week out and they love nothing more than running out into a packed house at AAMI Park. The purple pride buzzing, the fireworks booming and the Storm faithful cheering as loud as they can. Melbourne Storm is a club built on family and that means sharing the journey with our fans every step on the way. Our boys need your support in their pursuit for success – be there to help make a difference.
