Forrester’s Guide to a Successful Game Day

Our Top 5 Tips For A Great Game Day At Forrester’s

Rally your mates and get ready to enjoy game day in Surry Hills favourite pub!

If you’re a big footy fan, then you’ll understand that being well hydrated, fueled and ready for a big game, is just as important for the fans, as it is for the players.

As a Sydney Swans friendly venue, we recognize the importance of being fully prepared to cheer on our team to victory.

From bringing together your mates, wearing your team colours and staying well-hydrated, keep reading to find out our top tips for a successful game day.

Wear Your Team Colours

Wearing your team colours during a match isn’t just about showing support—it’s about joining a vibrant community of fellow fans, turning every game into a celebration.

Throw on your team jersey and get ready to cheer them on to victory! For us, it’s all about the red & white! Go the Bloods!

Bonus! Wear the red & white or show your game day tickets to one of our staff, to feast on $1 chicken wings and jugs of White Bay Beer Co. XPL, the official sponsoring beer of the Sydney Swans.

Gather The Crew

Rally your mates together to help cheer on your favourite team.

Whether they bleed footy colours or just enjoy the game, the more, the merrier.

Get Fuelling

A successful game comes down to the preparation, not only for the players but also for the fans. Grabbing a feed and a few cheeky beers before heading to the game, will ensure everyone is fueled and ready for a big game.

Swing past Forrester’s for an epic smashed cheeseburger, or go all out and get a Big Yorkie.

Get Your Head In The Game

While you’re physically prepared for the game, there’s nothing that will get you ready for the big moment until you’re in the stadium.

Our reccomendation is to get to the stadium early to score the best seats, enjoy the game, but don’t forget to pace yourself for all the action!

Keep The Celebrations Going

Whether you’re celebrating or commiserating, there’s always an excuse for post-match kick-ons.

No need to wave a taxi down, simply stroll down the hill from the SCG and pop your head into rehydrate.

At Forrester’s we believe, win or lose everyone deserves a beer!
