Where can I park my car?
Yarra parking will be available for $10 per car via Gate 3 off Wellington Parade South. You can view the map via the MCG website HERE

Our team have organised a mini bus to get there, where can we park?
If you are planning on traveling to the game via bus, unfortunately there is no bus parking available at the MCG. There is however, plenty of bus parking available across the bridge at MOPT. We strongly encourage you to pre book bus parking via the following link: http://www.mopt.com.au/arriving-and-access/buspark-booking/

How will the walk operate?
You will be directed by Stars staff on where to enter the field and then guided around the MCG in a clockwise direction. Teams at seated in Row A of the Bay will file out first, followed by B, C, D etc. Once a full lap has been completed staff will direct you back into the Bay to sit down. Please ensure your team does not stop on the ground for photos.

What should we bring?
We recommend having your team wear your Club kit for the Walk so people know your club and our MC can spot your team colours and mention you over the PA!

If you have a team banner, you can bring this along too to carry at the front of your group!
