Other information

Estimated attendance


Car parking closed

For safety and security reasons, there will not be any public parking in Yarra Park. However, there will be a limited number of spaces available via Gate 3 for disability permit holders from 2.30pm.

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.

MCG conditions of entry

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.

There are approximately 130 bike hoops in Yarra Park, with most of those close to the concourse.
