A message to our fans ahead of the Melbourne Derby

There’s nothing quite like the Melbourne Derby. 

We circle them in our calendars as soon as the fixtures are released. We ride the waves of emotion. It’s ecstasy when we win. It’s painful when we lose. We live for these games.  

More than ever, your City boys need you in the stands at AAMI Park on Saturday night as we look to extend our lead at the top of the A-League Men ladder. 

Derbies are never easy, but we’re stronger with you behind us, so bring the energy and bring the noise, but remember there’s no place in our sport for anti-social behaviour.  

Football should be inclusive, safe, and enjoyable for everyone, so if you see something – including the intended use of flares – say something. 
You can anonymously report anti-social behaviour via text message to 0481 615 684. 

We’ve shared a lot of great memories over the years. Alex Terra securing a win in the very first Derby. Erik Paartalu’s stoppage time goal to break the deadlock in 2014. Tim Cahill’s famous long-range volley. And more recently, Jamie Maclaren’s bag of 5 goals. 

Get behind our boys on Saturday night, bring the noise and let’s make it a night to remember for all the right reasons. 
C’mon City!
