Believe there are some Stirling Makedonia fans flying over from Perth for the game. That's community ties

Traditional music and oro at Preston Makedonia on Saturday. Optus Sport was at the game filming Preston fans for the Macedonian section of their documentary on next year's Euros.

Optus Sport piece on the Macedonian community and Preston Lions here in Australia, in case some haven't seen it.

It's still the best installment they've done, absolutely fantastic. It puts all over community's and clubs to absolute shame, listen to that "MA-KE-DONIJA"

I agree I think so far that it was the most interesting episode in the series. Macedonians really are passionate when it comes to their football clubs, great support!

We are, though support for the clubs in Australia has noticeably declined

I know, it really is quite sad! Even though the Macedonian clubs still have decent support compared to majority of clubs I have noticed the last 15 years people don't attend football as much as they used to when it comes to the semi professional leagues. Going back even to the 2000's crowds were still solid!

I know that the only time my brothers will come with me to a Bankstown City Lions game is when I force them to come with me, otherwise they're at home playing games, watching Netflix or doing anything else related to using technology. They also seem to not care about leaving the house much in general, going to the park or anything of that nature which was really popular when I was younger.

I feel as though technology for all it's benefits has also made us more recluse and forget about all the other things we could be doing with our time. Even though it's not the only factor I think its a big reason as to why you see less people at football games, in particular the younger generation.

I think its sad but it seems to be the way things are these days, technology has given us so many other means of entertainment.

No doubt technology does play a role to an extent, but in the case of Bankstown City (old Sydney Macedonia), I would say it's more because the club really went downhill for a while there and is only just starting to find its feet again. The emergence of the A-League also just really seem to hit the traditional clubs in Sydney harder than other cities

That's definitely true, when things are going great, club is in the top division, winning, making finals people want to be there.

This was the case with Sydney Makedonia who had two decades of success with great support and still among the most successful clubs of NSW, then when the wheels fell off people stopped going. I guess it's just how people are, you see it with most clubs, majority of people want to be there through the good times but don't want to support and stick it out through the challenging times.

End of the day, the loyal ones will be there through it all and it will be even more sweet for them when the club gets back to where it should be. Clubs like Preston and Bankstown both belong in the top division and I hope they both achieve it soon enough.
