Two-millionth footy fan through the gate
Aug 19, 2013
The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) reached the two-million patron mark for the 2013 AFL season at last Friday night's match between Hawthorn and Collingwood.
Melbourne supporter and MCC member Leesa Walton, from Windsor in Victoria, was the lucky two-millionth AFL patron when she scanned in at the Gate 2 turnstiles prior to the game.
Leesa wins a “Nestle Peters Footy Pack”, which includes an MCG Superstore gift voucher to the value of $400 as well as dining for two people in the MCC Members Dining Room at an AFL home and away game, thanks to EPICURE.
The MCG has attracted 2,140,128 people through the turnstiles from 41 matches so far this AFL season at an average of 52,198 per match.
Eleven matches have registered attendances above 70,000 this season, including 93,373 recorded on Anzac Day.
