Get your MCG Grand Final poster!

Sep 18, 2012

To commemorate grand final day at the MCG, the Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) has again commissioned Australian artist Bob Shields to create a magnificent poster of footy moments that have captured the imagination of fans throughout the 2012 AFL season.

The MCG grand final poster is truly a collectors’ item. Some of the notable events highlighted include:

  • Mick Malthouse's appointment as Carlton coach 
  • Alistair Clarkson's hand in plaster
  • Australian Football Hall of Fame inductees
  • Goal review introduction
  • Travis Cloke's contract signing saga
  • Chris Judd's chicken wing tackle
  • Multiple pre-season coach changes
  • Buddy Franklin's 13-goal game against North Melbourne 
  • Paul Kelly as grand final entertainment
  • Vale, Jim Stynes
  • Addition of Greater Western Sydney Giants
  • Melbourne's Jeremy Howe and his attempts at mark of the year
  • An eagle perched on the roof to deter seagulls.

The free poster will be available inside Gate 3 at the MCG from Monday September 24, as well as at Federation Square. 

“The MCG grand final poster is a light-hearted look at the many notable events of the year,” said Lisa Trainor, MCC general manager commercial operations.

“Bob Shields has once again created a work of art for the enjoyment of thousands of footy fans.”
