More than 1000 Victorians had the opportunity to take a screamer on the hallowed MCG turf at the seventh annual MCG Rite of Passage event held on Sunday July 22, prior to the AFL clash between Richmond and North Melbourne.

This much loved and eagerly anticipated event provided children with the opportunity to experience what coming to the football was like when mum and dad were kids.

Adding to the fun and excitement on the day were several AFL stars, including Jake King (Richmond), Josh Gibson (Hawthorn) and Hamish McIntosh (North Melbourne). 

Successful participants also received a football to kick on the ground and a fantastic show bag. 

Many families also took the opportunity to stay and watch the Richmond v North Melbourne match from their reserved seating area.

To commemorate this special family day, participants took part in a group photograph on the MCG arena, which will be published shortly in the Herald Sun.
