Had a great night at AAMI tonight with my 5 year old daughter at the footie. Cheap season tickets, free transport to and from stadium. Face painting, balloon making, bouncy castles. Lots to interest the kids. Then the footie. We have always loved it. Great night out for the family, in my opinion. Yes, I got an interest in the game originally from my interest in Gaelic Football in Ireland but I have also been a season ticket holder with a premiership team for years and this experience is much more pleasant and reasonably priced. Yes, they do rip you off for food and drink in the outlets inside the stadium but bringing your own snacks and drinks diffuse this.
I know there is a perception that the Aussie game does not compare well with Soccer but I highly recommend it as a really good family day out. Daughter fell happily asleep in my arms on the bus home at 23.45 tonight! Although her mum was not happy at this!
