What's the location of the Saints family on Big Footy? Can anyone beat me for being further away from the club's base, and who is nearest i.e. open your door and you can see the players training?

It's a role reversal for the Aussie Manchester United fans :D. A bit of fun, which Sainters win the nearest and furthest awards?

I'm in Armadale - 11.4km from Marvel Stadium and 11.2km from Moorabbin - smack bang in the middle :moustache:

Funnily enough Paddy McCartin lives up the road from me too.
A massive 11 Kms from the club? Glory hunter, George. Something which has never been said to any Saints fan ever :tearsofjoy:

I'm 16,962 Kms away. There's the challenge.....

I'm tipping you win this one brother

I'm in Highton in Geelong.

81km to Etihad
97km to Moorabbin

Grew up 350km from Melb. The only other Sainter I knew outside my family back then was......

3580 kilometres. Drove it once to catch a game and it was such an awesome trip. We were based out at Seaford at the time and visiting Moorabbin was a little underwhelming. Still it is one of my favourite holiday adventures, with lots of enduring memories. Australia is so beautiful. When the new Moorabbin facility is built I'm going to do it again

Grew up in Patterson, 1.8 kms from the Moorabbin Oval. About a 15 - 20 minute walk to the game. Walk home would take between 30 - 240 minutes depending on amount of beers consumed and whether or not my cranial GPS was working as I exited the legendary oval.

Like Kegs I am now domiciled in a suburb of Geelong which puts me 73 kms from Marvel Stadium and 87 kms from RSEA Park (Moorabbin).

Match day travel is now via regional rail with takes just over an hour.

Pfffff.

According to the internet my nearest airport and Moorabbin airport are 17,128km apart, plus 9kms from Moorabbin airport to the club and 12km from my home to the airport.

17,149km.

It's a bit easier to get to Marvel, thankfully. A mere 17,121km.

At about 9700kms away, that match in Shanghai has to be considered my home game!

The closest I have ever lived to the club was the 17km between it and my house in Richmond North/North Richmond, not that I visited the eastern suburbs much. The closest I've lived to Docklands was the 4km I used to regularly ride on my bike between my share house in Carlton and the Docklands. As shit as the stadium was when it was built, that bike ride was a lot better than catching the train out to bloody Glen Waverley!
