Melbourne for AFL

Congratulations to the Richmond Football Club on their 2020 AFL Grand Final Win!

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 football 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’s football influence has not been lost on his family – both his son, Nick Michalczyk, and nephew, Matt Johnson, have played for the East Perth Football Club and Matt’s brother, Ben Johnson, was recruited for the West Coast Eagles in 2019!  Not to mention his West Coast champion nephew Dean Cox!

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 helping football fans with their travel plans for the AFL Grand Final for well over 40 years, and he himself has been to 42 consecutive finals – there aren’t many people in Australia who have been to more!

George is not the only AFL guru on our block!

Our Katrina has been organising AFL group packages for 30 years, and 25 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!
