Women in Football Function

Our football event is held during the AFL football season. This popular function can be a lunch or dinner depending on our availability. Held in the MCC Committee Room with a capacity of 120, we invite both female and male members as well as their guests.

Dining in the Committee Room is a privilege extended to us each year for this event and an experience not to be missed.

Our function includes canapés on arrival, a specially selected main course with full beverage service, traditional half time footy-fare and a reserved seat on Level 2.

This event provides us the opportunity to showcase the contributions made to football by women across all aspects of the game.

Previous speakers have included Linda Dessau – Essendon Women’s Network (2006), Elaine Canty – Journalist and Broadcaster (2007), Angela Williams – Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine (2008), Sam Lane – The Age, Leigh Russell – Essendon Football Club (2009), Dr Susan Alberti – Western Bulldogs (2010), Dr Jeanne McGivern – Geelong Football Club, Karen Hayes – Melbourne Football Club (2011), Debbie Lee – Community Manager Melbourne Football Club (2012), Caroline Wilson - Chief football writer for The Age (2013) and Dr Pippa Grange (2014).

We have wonderful raffle prizes donated by our many supporters to assist with our fundraising efforts and also have door prizes to add to the excitement of the event.
