MCG Community Day a big success

Oct 04, 2010

A happy family enjoying 2010 MCG Community DayHundreds of fans, young and old, enjoyed a kick on the famous MCG turf and posed with the premiership cup as part of a highly successful MCG Community Day on Sunday October 3.

Retracing the same steps the Collingwood premiership players took only a few hours earlier, fans stood on the dais that propelled the Pies into the history books and held aloft a replica of the premiership cup.

The MCG Community Day ticket price included entry into the National Sports Museum - Australia’s only multi-sports museum, containing thousands of sporting objects and interactives and situated beneath the MCG’s Olympic Stand - and a ’behind the scenes’ MCG Tour - something for all the family!
