The MCG looks forward to welcoming you to the Melbourne Football Club Premiership Celebration on Sunday December 5.

It will be the first time the red and blue army will get to celebrate the unforgettable 2021 AFL Grand Final win back in September, together with fellow supporters as well as players and coaches.

Tickets are free for all to attend however, for COVID-compliance and contact tracing purposes, all attendees will need to pre-book a reserved seat ticket to the event via Ticketek.

Fans will be able to redeem a ticket from 2.00pm AEDT on Wednesday November 24

Gates will open from 10.30am. From 11.00am, attendees will be able to relive the glory by watching the full replay of the historic match broadcast throughout big and small screens inside the MCG.

Fans can enjoy the half time entertainment, the opportunity to hear from the club’s 2021 Premiership players and coaches, plus past legends of the club. Outside the Ground, between 8.00am and 11.00am, the 2021 AFL Premiership Cup will be on display for supporters to take their own photographs with the Cup.

Unvaccinated patrons will not be permitted to enter the MCG, unless they are able to display a valid immunisation medical exemption provided by a Victorian Government-approved health professional.

As patrons arrive at the Gate, they are asked to bring up their COVID-19 digital certificate to display to match day staff at the entrance gate in one of two ways:
