Melbourne City Loyal is a Rangers Supporters Club based in the Central Business District of Melbourne, Australia. Our original aim was to create an atmospheric, enjoyable experience which would accommodate all the Bears and Bearettes that live in, travel through and visit the city of Melbourne.
Since the start of the 2010/2011 season, we have been located at the Imperial Hotel on Bourke Street, making it our very own Bear only venue for each game throughout the season!
After an extremely successful 1st season for the MCLRSC, we are always looking out for new members to join and look forward to seeing new faces each week. Club membership fees come in at $10 per season.
From the start of the 2011/2012 season, a club membership entitles you to Membership Card in which during match times, you can receive 25% off drinks at the bar as well as various other offers whilst at The Imperial Hotel.
You can sign up on this website to receive regular club updates. Alternatively email firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed on our club email distribution list or sign up to our club Facebook page.

I have been lucky, lucky in those who were around me from the boardroom to the dressing- room. In time of stress, their unstinted support, unbroken devotion to our club and calmness in adversity eased the task of making Rangers FC the premier club in this country.
To be a Ranger is to sense the sacred trust of upholding all that such a name means in this shrine of football. They must be true in their conception of what the Ibrox tradition seeks from them. No true Ranger has ever failed in the tradition set him."
Our very success, gained you will agree by skill, will draw more people than ever to see it. And that will benefit many more clubs than Rangers. Let the others come after us. We welcome the chase. It is healthy for us. We will never hide from it. Never fear, inevitably we shall have our years of failure, and when they arrive, we must reveal tolerance and sanity. No matter the days of anxiety that come our way, we shall emerge stronger because of the trials to be overcome. That has been the philosophy of the Rangers since the days of the gallant pioneers.
