Plan your journey

Visit the Optus Stadium website for detailed information on how you can get to the ground.

Arrive early

With a sell-out crowd to fill Optus Stadium, fans are encouraged to arrive early for the game.

Plenty will be happening outside the stadium in the precinct, while gates will open at 12:45pm.

Inside the ground, a curtain-raiser will be played between WA Under 19's and SA Under 19's from 1pm.

Represent a Member

The Demon faithful will once again be strong at Optus Stadium on Saturday, with Melbourne giving fans another opportunity to represent members who are unable to be there.

Attendees of the 2021 Toyota AFL Grand Final between the Dees and the Dogs will have chance to wear special badges featuring the surnames of loyal Melbourne members.

Members from Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and the ACT, who are unable to travel to the game due to lockdown and border restrictions, will be recognised.

The badges will be stationed at the Melbourne marquee in the Western Precinct, with collection available from 2.30pm local time.

Telstra AFL Pre-Match Show

Match day entertainment will have a strong Western Australian influence, with local artists to take the stage from 4:15pm.

Pre-game entertainment will include John Butler, Eskimo Joe, Abbe May, Stella Donnelly, duo Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse and Donna Simpson and Vikki Thorn from The Waifs. Plus Colin Hay and Baker Boy.

Half-Time entertainment will see Birds of Tokyo take the stage along side the West Australian Symphony Orchestra.
