The Swans Blog is creating Sydney Swans Podcasts, Blogs, Columns, Stories, News and More

A passionate Sydney Swans supporter launched The Swans Blog back in October 2016 and grew a sizeable following over 2017 and 2018. We've been steadily adding more content each year, match reports, player ratings, injury reports, match previews and more, but in 2019 we're hoping to fund The Swans Blog properly, so that we can continue to bring more of that quality content that you love.

So you're here, looking at our Patreon site with paid content and asking, if the site will remain free, what will I get here?

That's a great question - you'll get articles unique to Patreon that you won't find anywhere else. This could be opinion pieces, player profiles, interviews and more. We're still developing our content and deciding what will land on Patreon. We don't want to throw everything on here and hope you'll pay for rubbish - that's not our style. We've been creating quality content for years now and we want to maintain that standard.

The Swans Blog doesn't generate revenue from advertising and we're going to keep it that way. We want our supporters to have their say in the type of content that we create, tell us if our ideas are dumb, or if we absolutely must write something. When we want to survey our supporters, our Patreon supporters will be the ones we throw too.

If you enjoy what we create, what we do and you want to show your appreciation, sign up as a Swans Blog Supporter

Everything that we already do on The Swans Blog remains free, the same as it has always been. But if you sign up to become a Swans Blog member on Patreon, you get a little bit more, with some podcasts and writing that won't be available anywhere else but here.

The cost is just $5 per month - the cost of a coffee in Melbourne, even less than a pot of your favourite Australian brew, and a third of the cost of a chicken parma.

Become a supporter to get access to our extra short-form content, created just for you!


For the cost of a short-black coffee, your support helps keep our lights on and our servers ticking!

This is $5 USD, with conversion and transaction fees it's close to $6.50 a month.

Swans Blog Squad
$7.50 or more per month

This is $7.50 USD per month, so with all the costs, you're looking at about $9 AUD per month, less than a boring healthy salad.

Swans Blog Mega Member
$10 or more per month

You get everything a regular Swans Blog Squad Member would get, and have your input in the content that we create. You will have your own opinion column on the blog, and general input into what we do.

Swans Blog Coaching Box
$30 or more per month

You get everything the other members get. You get to shape our content and enjoy the horrors of being the Blogs' coach. You say jump, he doesn't get to ask how high.

Swans Blog Benefactor
$50 or more per month

Far out. Everything. You get it all, everything.

We haven't even thought of content yet! Want to come on our podcast? You got it, done!


Want to share a burger and beer on Mr Blogs in Melbourne, or when he travels for the Swans? Lock it in! We'll watch a game of footy at a pub with you.


I don't know what I'll offer, I have no clue, but clothes will remain on and dignities intact! We're offering up Mr Blogs' time as if he was an intern -  you can surprise him, whenever you want.


Please note, this is $50 in USD, so conversion and fees, this is more like $72 AUD per month. You'll be our hero on this level, we'll love you forever.

Swans Blog Master of the Universe
$100 or more per month

Pie in the sky here, but honestly, to keep our quality content ticking over on a regular day-to-day basis, we need a few of these. We're hoping that a few of you are doing well enough, and love us enough, to become patrons of old.


Mr Blogs will take you to a game in Melbourne of your choice, or watch a game with you and your mates. He'll will write a footy article on your topic of choice, or gladly sit down and talk footy with you. You'll get access to our Redback Membership seats at the SCG for a game of your choice.


You'll also get listed as a patreon on any e-books or content that we publish during your patronage, and we'll add you to our top-tier supporters page.
