Please note: As a mark of respect, MCG entry gates and catering outlets will pause operation during the Last Post and national anthem . We ask patrons to remain silent during this time.
Avoid the queues - arrive early!Security procedures such as bag checks and patron scanning will again be in place as fans make their way into the stadium. This process will lead to minor delays, so it is recommended that you arrive by around 2.00pm, as those who arrive later may miss the start of the pre-game ceremony.
Plan your trip - Swan Street Bridge worksWork has commenced on an upgrade to Swan Street Bridge. Lane closures on the bridge will lead to traffic congestion and additional travel time. We therefore recommend fans plan ahead and take an alternative route, or avoid driving all the way to the MCG and catch public transport instead.
National Sports Museum Get to the game early and visit the National Sports Museum before you watch your team run out. Only on game days, receive 50 per cent off entry to the NSM during event mode.
