Sunday Funday in 2015 at the MCG

Sunday Funday at the 'G

Experience Sunday Funday this season at an AFL game! The MCG is offering families an unmatchable experience.

The MCG will offer kick-to-kick at 11 Sunday AFL matches in 2017, up from eight games last year, and free admission to the National Sports Museum for children at all Sunday games this season.

Kids in free in National Sports Museum

Children under 15 will be granted free admission to the National Sports Museum when arriving with an adult during event mode, which aligns with the “kids in free” initiative to all Sunday AFL games* in all sections of the MCG.

There will be special pre-game activities in the museum, with possibilities including book signings and cartoonists (details below).

With memorabilia from some of the biggest sporting heroes, highlights from our nation’s sporting history, from AFL to Olympics, and fun interactive displays, the National Sports Museum has something to entertain the whole family before the footy.

Pre-purchase your event mode tickets to the National Sports Museum here. Please note: you must have a ticket for the event to gain entry into the MCG. 

*Conditions apply. Visit for more information.
