Magpie Club




Within the Collingwood Football Club there are various Official Coteries working behind the scenes to assist and support and we are very proud to be one of them.

We were formed in 1979. We are a group of likeminded individuals who have the best interest of the mighty Pies at heart and we consider ourselves to be proud and passionate supporters of our footy team.

Magpie Club Coterie Members must join the Collingwood Social Club and we are able to assist in this regard.

We offer various Packages which can be structured to cater to the individual Member or Business. These can include Sponsorship, Business Patron and Game Day packages. Some conditions apply including dress code.

We also have the facilities to cater for Corporate entities on game days at a negotiated rate per table.

Members are encouraged to bring their wives, families, friends and business associates as guests and enjoy the game with fellow supporters in a dining room atmosphere.

Our major sponsor is Warren and Brown Technology Group who specialize in supplying telecommunications infrastructure. Either Neil Domelow and/or Steve Normoyle are in attendance at all games.

Other sponsors include, Berwick Toyota, Clarke Nicholas Constructions, Melbourne Cool Runnings, Steven Gilbert & Co Furniture Design, PG Floors, Pegmar Industries, Q Industries, Tripolymer, and Briner Ads.

Our venues are located in the Jack Ryder Room A on the second level of the MCG and the Endeavour Room at Etihad Stadium.

At each home game a couple of young Players attend our luncheon, if able, dependent on match day commitments, and give us a brief insight into their progress at Collingwood.

Match days are very busy with Member draws, Ladies Mystery Prize, raffles, and much more.

We have our own resident emcee, Brodie Young, who keeps it lively and interesting.

The basic Member package (including one guest) offers:

- Ground entry passes, swing tags
- 3 course meal, including beer, wine and soft drinks
- Afternoon tea at half time
- Football Record
- Official area car parking on request at cost
- The option to bring along extra guests at cost is also available.

Children are also welcome in our room and can come along in all their footy finery.

A couple of highlights during the year are our annual Seafood Dinner and our Children’s’ Day.

We are renowned for the Seafood Function, which is the main fundraiser for our Coterie, this is one not to be missed and in fact is mandatory for our members. Present and past players are always in attendance at this Function.

The Childrens’ Day, is another popular game with players attending, other activities include a handball competition, face painting, clowns, mascots, gifts for the children and showbags with lots of Collingwood goodies to take home. Check out our website for pictures of these events.

The option to attend other Coterie events is available to our members and we can also organize bookings for major Collingwood events.

Amongst these would be the Season Launch, Business Lunches, Golf Days, Coaches Night, Waislitz Ball, Copeland Trophy, Events scheduled with the Players and Past Player Functions.

For away games we have the facility to book and allocate tables in the Lou Richards Lounge at the MCG for members if desired.

We also attend as many of the VFL games as we can at Victoria Park and organize after match refreshments for whoever would like to come into our room under the Sherrin Stand after the game.

This gives an ideal opportunity for all supporters of both our Seconds and the opposition on the day to meet the players and coaches.
