Parking in Yarra ParkDue to expected demand, car parking space in Yarra Park will be limited.
Peak hour traffic in the Melbourne CBD and surrounds will lead to congestion in the MCG precinct. We therefore recommend fans avoid driving all the way to the MCG.
Please note: After the final siren, vehicles parked in Yarra Park will be held back for a period of time until pedestrians have safely cleared the precinct. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
Avoid the queues - arrive earlySecurity procedures such as bag checks and patron scanning will again be in place.
This process will take time, so please arrive early to ensure you are in the seat at the first bounce.
It is highly recommended that you are at the stadium by around 6.30pm, as those who arrive later may miss the start of the match.
Motorbike parkingPlease note that there are changed arrangements for motorbikes parking near the stadium concourse.
