Our mascots return as does the Nostra Homes Face Painting station – head to Gates 2 and 7 to have your face painted ahead of the big match.

Getting to AAMI Park

With the Melbourne Derby at AAMI Park, Taylor Swift at the MCG and the basketball on at John Cain Arena, it’s set to be super busy in the precinct.

We encourage all City fans to head to the game with plenty of time and to plan your trip ahead.

With the Eastern Car Park across the road sold out and the MCG car park only available to those with Taylor Swift tickets, we recommend catching public transport.

Buses will be replacing trains in parts on the Frankston (between Mordialloc and Cheltenham) and Belgrave (between Bayswater and Ringwood) lines.


Get your hands on our 2023/24 PUMA A-Leagues kits and lots more!

Head to Aisles 4 and 24 to grab one of our fresh kits and check out our range this Saturday night!
