MCG Rite of Passage

Action from MCG Rite of Passage in 2011Now in its 10th consecutive year and still as popular as ever, the MCG Rite of Passage is back!

The MCG Rite of Passage event aims to introduce children to the MCG and have access to the ground as their parents did.

This annual event on the MCG calendar also provides older generations with an opportunity to introduce and share the MCG experience with younger generations, retelling their memories of what it was like when they were young.

This year, Rite of Passage will be taking place at the MCG on Saturday May 17, 2014 prior to the Richmond v Melbourne match.

As in previous years a random, computer-generated draw will be used to select the lucky participants.

YES, we know. New Zealand is on a record ten-game winning streak and beat Australia in the pool stage. But here’s why the World Cup final is a different story.

IMAGINE if Shane Watson won the man of the match award in the World Cup final. It could redefine his entire career. The masses might have to — gulp — applaud him.
