With a large crowd expected, car parking in Yarra Park is limited.

Drivers should arrive as early as possible, or seek an alternative transport method, as space will fill before match time.

Special offer: Footy fans can also park at Le Garage (114 Flinders St) at a discounted rate of $8 by scanning your event ticket at the pay station.

Arrive early

Security measures such as bag checks and patron scanning will again be in place as fans make their way into the stadium.

This process will take time, so please be patient - and limit the number of bags you bring. Each bag will be inspected, so the more bags you bring the longer it will take.

It is recommended that fans arrive by around 6.30pm-7.00pm, as those who arrive later may miss the teams run out and/or the start of the match.

Help us help you

Security and event staff are doing an important job, so please help them by co-operating at all times.

Be our eyes and ears: If you see something you think is suspicious, immediately inform event staff, a security guard or police.

Bicycle parking

Patrons are asked to refrain from locking their bicycle up on the MCG concourse, or in an area that is likely to cause an obstruction or is too close to congested queues or crowds of people.

Any bicycle deemed to meet the above criteria will be removed and stored inside the MCG for a patron to collect after the match.

There are approximately 80 bike hoops in Yarra Park, with most of those close to the concourse. View a map of bike hoop locations
