Adelaide -v- Richmond - AFL | Toyota Grand Final 2017

Richmond WINS the 2017 AFL Premiership season with a stunning win over Adelaide.

After 37 long years Richmond has finally bared its fangs on Grand Final day again, mauling a lacklustre Adelaide with the relentless pressure that has become its trademark this September to seal an inspired 48-point premiership triumph before 100,021 fans at the MCG.

The Tigers sealed their 11th flag – and first since 1980 – with a run of seven unanswered goals from early in the second quarter that had the Crows staggering on the ropes just 10 minutes into the third term.

Melbourne 2017 AFL Broadcast Guide


--> 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.

Public transport: AFL Grand Final & Parade

The Free Tram Zone has been extended to the MCG, helping you travel to the Grand Final Parade, AFL Footy Festival and 2017 Toyota AFL Grand Final.

The Free Tram Zone will be extended to include tram stops close to Yarra Park. The Free Tram Zone extension begins from first service on Wednesday 27 September to last service Saturday 30 September 2017.

This means customers travelling by tram from within the Free Tram Zone in the CBD, won't need to touch on their myki to get to the MCG and Yarra Park.

Extended Free Tram Zone stops are:

Stop 9 Wellington Parade/Lansdowne Street
Stop 10 Wellington Parade/Jolimont Road
Stop 11 Wellington Parade/Jolimont Station
Stop 7a William Barak Bridge
Stop 7b Rod Laver Arena
Stop 7c MCG/Hisense Arena

Customers travelling by tram from outside the Free Tram Zone, or by bus or train will still need to touch on their myki to ensure they have a valid fare.

Please note: As Friday 29 September is a public holiday, all public transport will be operating to a public holiday timetable.
