Curtain raiserA curtain raiser match will be played between the Essendon and Geelong VFL teams prior to the main match, at 11.50am.
Gates 1, 3 and 6 will be open from 11.00am.
Arrive earlySecurity measures such as bag checks and patron scanning will again be in place as fans make their way into the stadium.
This process will take time, so please be patient - and limit the number of bags you bring. Each bag will be inspected, so the more bags you bring the longer it will take.
It is recommended that fans arrive early, as those who arrive later may miss the teams run out and/or the start of the match.

Bicycle parkingPatrons are asked to refrain from locking their bicycle up on the MCG concourse, or in an area that is likely to cause an obstruction or is too close to congested queues or crowds of people.
