Share your passion for the Melbourne Football Club by becoming part of The Demon Army - the official cheer squad of the Club. The Demon Army is one of the most visible and recognised sectors of the Club’s supporting community, and has been so since at least the 1950s.
Cheer squad members have the privilege of being as close to the action as you can get as a supporter. Located behind the goals in a family friendly environment, the Demon Army adds to the voice and colour of match days. The Demon Army also shares the responsibility of preparing the weekly run through, and representing the Club Australia wide.
New members are always welcome! We want to see the Demon Army grow, and we encourage you to join us and enjoy the benefits experienced by our current members. Cheer squad members must hold a 2017 Melbourne Football Club membership to be eligible to join.

Basic food and drink is provided.
Demon Army Committee
The Demon Army is headed up by a three person committee consisting of Ryan Sinclair, Suzanne Considine, and Sophie Galer.
These three fanatical Dees fans work in conjunction with the MFC and Demon Army advisor John Trotter (MFC board member and previous cheer squad member) and will happily work with anyone and everyone who wishes to be involved in the Demon Army.
The vision of this group is ‘to be an unashamedly positive reflection of the Melbourne Football Club, through the enthusiasm, passion and unity of its supporters.’
The Demon Army is a supporter group for the most fanatical of Melbourne supporters - a supporter group run by Melbourne supporters, for Melbourne supporters. It will be somewhere for the passionate and fanatical to meet like minded people. During the year, there will also be social functions and discounted travel.

The most important role of Demon Army is to turn up at our games and cheer on the team – however, there are many more ways in which you can be involved. It doesn’t matter if you’re a lawyer or housewife, a student or a doctor. If you’re a fanatical Demons fan, then we need you.
