To the Tiger Army,
No matter where you are, we can hear your roar.
The unwavering support and commitment you give our Club, and the players, is something we truly feel every time we take the field.
Winning finals and making Grand Finals is so special because we get to do it with our fans. Even though we cannot see you, just knowing you are all there - 100,000 strong - means the world.
You have always been on the ride with us, and this year is no different. Even though it has been a season like no other, some things will never change.
The support from our fans in Queensland, and those who have been lucky enough to be able to cross state borders to join us in the Sunshine State, has been nothing short of phenomenal. You may be small in number, but your roar is loud.
And to our fans back home in Victoria, particularly those still in lockdown in Melbourne, we are thinking of you, your families, and your friends. It is because of your unwavering support that we are still able to run out and do what we love.
On Saturday, we know you will be watching and cheering for us, like you always do. The current restrictions mean you will not be able to watch the game with the people you normally do. This will no doubt be tough. But know that we will be able to gather together, the Tiger Army as one, in the not too distant future.
We hope we have brought some joy to your living rooms at home this year and we will do everything we can to bring the premiership cup back to Melbourne with us.
We want to paint the town (and your lounge rooms) Yellow and Black, so we have designed fan party packs especially for you! If you visit our Finals Hub online richmondfc.com.au/finals, you’ll find decorations, posters, digital wallpapers and drawing activities for kids.
We’d love to hear from you too, so send a message to the team, or create your own finals photo frame and add it to our fan wall – we’re giving away a team signed footy to our best dressed fans.
Make sure you all stay safe and look out for each other this weekend. Victoria is almost through these difficult restrictions so do the right thing.
Show the world how you are supporting the Yellow and Black and we will do all we can to the bring the ultimate prize back to Tigerland.
