Match Day Sweatband Rd 17.jpg

It's hard to believe that it's ten years since the Cats breakthrough premiership in 2007 to end a 44-year drought without a grand final win.

We are celebrating the famous 119-point win over Port Adelaide, the greatest grand final winning margin in VFL/AFL history, with exclusive commemorative 2007 premiership giveaways at the four Melbourne home games in 2017.

You will be able to complete the set of 2007 commemorative premiership items at Saturday’s game!

After giving away 2007 commemorative posters, drink bottles and sweat towels at their rounds 2, 3 and 6 games at Etihad Stadium and the MCG, the final item will be a 2007 premiership sweatband.

The items will be given away at Gates 1 & 3 at the MCG, before the game and stocks are strictly limited. Get in quick to avoid disappointment.

For all up-to-date transport information, please visit the MCG website



There are two train stations close to the MCG. Jolimont (otherwise known as MCG Station) is north of the ground and offers a five-minute stroll through Yarra Park to the ground. From any railway station in the central business district, take the Hurstbridge or Epping lines.

The other station is Richmond on the south eastern side of the MCG. It's a slightly longer walk to the ground but you can walk past the Punt Road Oval to the Great Southern Stand side. To get to Richmond station from the city, take any train on the Lilydale, Belgrave, Alamein, Glen Waverley, Dandenong, Pakenham, Cranbourne, Frankston or Sandringham lines.

On event days, the MCG homepage will feature live updates on the capacity of parking in Yarra Park, as demand for parking is usually greater than space available.

Note: At the conclusion of MCG events, vehicles will be held back for a period of time until pedestrians have cleared the precinct. Also, there are changed arrangements for motorbikes.



The MCG is well serviced by pedestrian bridges that provide easy access to the stadium from a number of directions.

The William Barak Bridge, provides walking access from Flinders Street station to the MCG. It rises from Birrarung Marr (near Federation Square) over Batman Avenue, the Jolimont Railway corridor and Brunton Avenue before descending into Yarra Park. The bridge links Melbourne’s fabulous sports and entertainment venues with the heart of the city.

The Rod Laver Arena footbridge links the MCG and Rod Laver Arena, travelling between the two stadiums from the MCG’s Gate 1 concourse over the railway corridor to the foot of Rod Laver Arena

The Hisense Arena footbridge runs parallel to the Rod Laver Arena footbridge, extending from the MCG’s Gate 6 concourse over the railway corridor and descending into the Olympic Park precinct on Swan Street.



Port Phillip Ferries off a stress free alternative to get to the game. Their 35m catamaran vessel seats 400 passengers and runs direct between Portarlington and Docklands, letting you read the paper, catch up on emails while breathing in the fresh sea air and enjoying the sights and sounds of the bay.  It's just a short trip from the Port to the MCG. 

Book here for our Round 17 game.
