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.

A number of AFL stars were present on the day, including James Frawley (Melbourne), Eddie Betts (Carlton) and Jack Gunston (Hawthorn). 

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 Adelaide 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.
