    what station would I be able to watch the only game the AFL grand final on at MUI NE .

  2. You’ll have to find a place that gets “Australia Network”. It’s the only network that matters on Grand Final Day.

    i heard vietnam swans been talking about a pie shop in hcmc, yet no one has been able to give me an address. could some one be kind enough to share it with me. 3 years without a meat pie!!! looking forward to one.

    • Big JOE said

      The pie shop you’re looking for is Crumbs which is located at 54 Truong Dinh in District 1, 08 3825 7199.

      If you’re in Vung Tau, The Great Aussie Pie Shop is just over the road from the ferry terminal. 144 Ha Long, Vung Tau, 064 352 1984. They also do a great serve of fish and chips.

    My son and I flying into Hanoi next Friday afternoon (18th Sept). Does anyone know where we can watch the mighty Saints and the Bulldogs on TV there? GO SAINTS!!!!

    • mick singleton said

      Hi Joe you will be able to watch it at Jaspas, 4th Floor Hanoi Towers, 49 Hai Ba Trung Street.

      • In Hanoi, we are getting special vouchers printed that will give you a $5 discount and will also give the Club $5.

        The poster is on this website – check the “Grand Final Parties” tab – and print one off for the discount. Or, alternatively, if you can’t print it, tell JASPAS that you saw the voucher on the Swannies’ website.

    Any idea of where we could see the GF in Nha Trang?

    • Hi Will
      At this stage, we’re not aware of anyone who is screening the GF in Nha Trang. If we hear of a place, we will post it on our website. If you hear of a place, let us know and we’ll post it on the website.
      You could always go to Hoi An, Hue or Saigon and then return to Nha Trang. Grand Final Day is probably the biggest day of the year…

    Hi how can I reserve 4 tickets to The Cage for the Grand Final? We will be arriving in Saigon on Thursday.

    • Hi Laurie
      Fantastic that you’re wanting to come along to the Vietnam Swans AFL Grand Final Party in Saigon.
      Tickets are no won sale at Phatty’s Bar located at 40 Ton That Thiep District 1(behind Sunwah Tower Office Tower in Nguyen Hue Street) or at The Cage, 3A Ton Duc Thang Street, District 1. Alternatively, contact to try and organise a delivery somewhere else such as the Commonwealth Bank’s premises in D1.

    We will be having Hues 2nd ever grand final party this year. After the huge success of last year, and the mighty pies going on to win their 2nd grand final in 20 years, we are expecting a huge one. Free entry, super cheap beers and home made meat pies.
    Hope to see a heap of people there.

  12. Andrew said

    Hi I’ve been in Saigon a year and went to the Sheraton last year for Grand Final day and had a brilliant day. Would love to do something similar again this year. Are there still tickets available and is it a similar deal as far as food and drinks are concerned(all you can eat & drink). If so I would love to watch the grand final again and I know a few other people who would love to go.

    We aren’t Aussies but absolutely loved the atmosphere last year.

    • Hi Andrew

      Last year, while you were at the Sheraton, the Vietnam Swans were at the Cage in Ton Duc Thang Street.

      This year, the Vietnam Swans will be hosting our Grand Final Party at La Cantine – On the 6, at 6 Dong Khoi Street, District 1 and it should be a cracker.

      The tickets are being printed at the moment and we are expecting that they will go on sale on Friday 27 August. They will be USD35 for pre purchase. Have a look at the “Grand Final Parties” tab on this website for the poster with the full details.

      While you’re not Aussies, would you be interested in becoming more actively involved in our footy club? As you can see from this website, we have truckloads of events coming up of which the Grand Final is just one!
