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.

The hallowed MCG turf welcomed footy fans keen to relive the thrill of the most significant day of the footy calendar.

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. 

Before heading out to the ground, a visit to the National Sports Museum interactive Game On space allowed fans to perfect their kicking and handballing skills, which were then be put to the test in front of the mighty MCG goal posts.

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!
