About The Welcome Game

Our game has a proud history of inclusiveness. Whether you were born here or born overseas – our game welcomes you.

Whatever your religion – our game welcomes you. Whatever your gender or whoever you love – our game welcomes you!

This game offers an opportunity to celebrate Melbourne's diversity and inclusiveness and a sense of belonging – and what better way to do this than by welcoming everyone to Australia’s game at the home of football, the iconic MCG.

In addition, it’s an opportunity for Melbourne’s dynamic and vibrant community to come together and celebrate the cultural heritage and identity of the city.
