G’day Everyone


The Almanac is a community of writers and readers who love life – especially sport. We’re actually like a sporting club. Which is why we have memberships.


By becoming an Almanac member for 2021, you will help us cover our ever-expanding costs, especially when it comes to looking after the website which takes our (paid) editors a lot of time.


There is one membership category for 2021:


The membership fee is $100.


(Student rate is $50)


Membership includes:


  • a book – choose from our 2021 book (whatever it is), The Tigers Almanac 2019, The Eagles Almanac 2018, The Women’s Footy Almanac 2018, The Tigers’ Almanac 2017, The Doggies Almanac 2016, any other edition of The Footy Almanac 2007-2015, Footy Town, Play On (by John Harms)
  • priority booking to all events (including Grand Final eve lunch)


And, as a member, you will be able to post pieces on free of charge, while non-members pay a fee to be posted.


If you are interested in becoming a member please contact us via [email protected] and we’ll email you a membership form.


Thanks for your ongoing involvement and support,



Become a Patron


We have a number of patrons. They are wonderful supporters who make an annual contribution to help keep the Almanac ticking along. This especially allows us to develop projects. For example:


Peter Stirk makes a contribution towards paying a student who is an emerging writer/historian/journalist a fee to have a stint as an intern on our website. He also pays a number of memberships, especially for those trying to make their way as professional writers.


Hayden Kelly also makes a contribution towards paying a student as an intern.


Steve Earl makes a personal contribution which goes towards paying for special memberships.


Our volunteer editors give their time every week. They include David Wilson, Luke Reynolds, Dave Brown, Smokie Dawson and others.


You can also help us to support a student journalist/writer/historian by creating a scholarship/internship. If you would like to make a contribution as a patron please email John Harms.


Sponsorship and advertising


We also welcome support through sponsorship and  advertising. These give your company/organisation presence on our website, in our printed publications, in our e-newsletter and at our events.


To find out more about becoming a sponsor/advertiser please email John Harms.
