On The Day
The day kicks off with the North Melbourne Grand Final Breakfast (9am).
The retiring players motorcade around the ground:
Game (start) T.B.A. (2.30pm or Twilight 5pm)
Television & Internet Coverage

AROUND THE GROUND
--> Metro Trains has extra train services to get to and from the MCG.
How to get to the MCG?
The best way is public transport (trams/trains). Metro Melbourne put on extra services (trams and trains) before and after the game. Cars and parking are always a nightmare on the big day plus if it rains, Yarra Park will get muddy with the possibility of getting bogged.
Patrons are strongly advised to utilise public transport, with parking in Yarra Park severely limited due to the Foxtel Footy Festival and recent heavy rain. Further updates on parking availability may be provided closer to Grand Final Day.
