ANZAC Day - Visitor tickets sold out

Apr 04, 2013

It’s one of the biggest events on the MCG sporting calendar and this year’s Essendon v Collingwood ANZAC Day clash on Thursday April 25 is sure to be no exception.

UPDATE: All visitor tickets and reserved seats have sold out.

Approximately 17,000 seats will be available for ALL members (Full and Restricted) and guests (with a visitor ticket) on a walk-up basis.

There will be no Long Room or Balcony passes available.

Walk-up seating - Level 1:
To maximise capacity and eliminate seat saving, the club has extended the seat ticket distribution process that is normally applied on levels 2 and 3 to Level 1 for Anzac Day.

Once the gates are open, members and guests who choose to sit on "M" level (Level 1) in non-reserved seats, are asked to remain there until issued with a reserved seat ticket by an attendant.

If arriving a little later, please see one of the attendants at each bay to see what seat tickets they may have available for you.

 

 

Members and guests are advised to allow plenty of time to get to the ground and take public transport where possible.
