What a fantastic end to the 2016 AFL Grand Final with that nailbiting win by the Western Bulldogs!! Reminds us why we love the game so much!
It’ll come as no surprise that the man behind Motive Travel, George Michalczyk, is a huge fan of both travelling the world and a great many sports. From horse racing to cricket to golf, our George laps them up, but there’s one sport in particular which really stirs his passion: Aussie Rules Football!
He’s lived and breathed AFL from the day he was born, playing the sport from the moment he could pick up a ball. Throughout his life, he’s been an influential player, most notably as a link man, before hanging up his boots and turning to coaching new generations of players.
What’s more, he’s a lifelong member of the East Perth Football Club, so it’s fair to say that George is a massive fan of the sport, first and foremost.
George managed to combine his two passions when he joined Motive Travel, with AFL at the forefront of his new venture. To this end, he’s been selling awesome packages to the AFL Grand Final for well over 40 years, and he himself has been to over 40 consecutive finals – there aren’t many people in Australia who have been to more!
Our Katrina has been organising group AFL packages for 29 years, and 24 of them have been with us at Motive. She’s a woman who knows what she is talking about, having seen a great raft of changes take place with how football tour packages have been arranged over the years. This means she’s the perfect person to organise your trip to Melbourne – she’s heard every story, and is very flexible to any situation and requirements!
Unfortunately, tickets to the match itself can only be purchased through the AFL event office or an authorised on-seller, but don’t fret – we can help you organise these tickets if you like!
The 2017 AFL Grand Final may be some time away but if you’d like to plan early, which is a wise thing to do with such a hugely popular event, be sure to contact us.
