The Richmond Football Club is seeking expressions of interests for the club’s bandwagon.
The bandwagon is in excellent condition and has recently been serviced, after tens of thousands of people got off it in a hurry.
Richmond CEO Brendon Gale said the bandwagon had been used ‘off and on’ over the years but never for any long period of time.
“It has mainly been used by a bunch of fans for a couple of rounds each year then in storage from the first weekend of September,” said Mr Gale.
“Short usage and then a lot of time just sitting in the garage gathering dust.”
The bandwagon would be perfect for a young up-and-coming club who has drafted well and appointed Luke Beveridge as coach.
The bandwagon features:
- Multiple microwaves
- Shatterproof glass
- A waterproof interior
- Decades of broken hopes and dreams
- Several copies of Terry Wallace’s 5-year plan
- A framed Kevin Bartlett poster
- Matthew Richardson
- Multiple exits with emergency slides
- Lots of sawdust on the floor
“It’s sad letting this go,” said Mr Gale, “we’d had it recently done up, as we expected to get a lot of use out of it this year.”
“Now that we obviously won’t be needing it we could frankly use the cash to pay out an employee we accidentally extended recently.”
Interested clubs should send their best offer scrawled on the back of a napkin to ‘Brendon Gale, Richmond Football Club, Punt Road.’
