Fitzroy FC Lunches for 2015

Fitzroy FC is a cracking community club based at the beautiful Brunswick Street Oval, with its cityscape backdrop, its autumnal cum winter-bare plane trees, and its grand old stand. There is a great sense of history at the ground and among the people.

Each season the club hosts home-game lunches. As an expert in lunch, I can tell you these are some of the best lunches in footy. If you would like to attend, please contact [email protected] in the first instance.

Here’s this year’s program:


25 April      (v Ajax) Anzac Day theme – Reds Foundation

May 2          (v Mazenod) Afternoon Tea at 1/2 time – last year was our first and it was a huge success.  Supporters are asked to bring a plate.  $5 entry.  (no lunch that day)
