Visiting the Members’ Reserve for the Melbourne Football Club Premiership Celebration


The Melbourne Football Club and Melbourne Cricket Club looks forward to welcoming you to the Melbourne Football Club Premiership Celebration on Sunday December 5 at the MCG. We look forward to welcoming members and guests to the Members’ Reserve.

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 members and guests 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. There is a maximum of 10 tickets per transaction. MCC members can obtain up to nine tickets for guests. There will be no walk-up opportunity for members.

Members will be able to redeem tickets from 2.00pm AEDT on Wednesday November 24

Gates will open from 10.00am. Members with a pre-booked reserved seat will be required to scan into the Members’ Reserve using their membership card. 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.
