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 early, as those who arrive later may miss the teams run out and/or the start of the match.

MCG conditions of entry

Some items are not permitted inside the MCG. Please read our conditions of entry before attending.

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

National Sports Museum and Tours

The National Sports Museum, located inside MCG Gate 3, will be open from 12.30pm-3.00pm for ticket holders (half-price entry).

MCG Tours will not be running during the day.
