The Melbourne Football Club Premiership Celebration presented by Zurich will take place on Sunday December 5th at the MCG.

With gates opening at 10:30am and the official event kicking off at 11:00am, supporters will be able to relive the Grand Final win with hopefully 40,000 other passionate Dees fans by watching the full replay of the historic match broadcast throughout screens in the MCG.

The club is encouraging as many supporters as possible to attend the event, with half time entertainment and the opportunity to hear from the club’s 2021 Premiership players and coaches, plus past legends of the club. Those present at the event will also have the opportunity to win money-can’t-buy experiences that will create lifelong memories.

Chief Executive Officer Gary Pert said:

“This event will be an incredibly special day and I strongly encourage as many Melbourne supporters as possible to get to the MCG for this once in a lifetime opportunity.

“It is the first chance our players, coaches and the wider club will have to thank our supporters for their loyalty.

“This unique event is designed to create scenarios and experiences, that I truly believe supporters will remember and cherish for the rest of their lives.

“We have plenty of different activations planned throughout the day, which will include the recreation of the players being presented their medals on stage.

“We will also finally hear from Senior Coach, Simon Goodwin who will get the chance to deliver his much-anticipated Grand Final speech to the Melbourne faithful and some words from the Captain, Max Gawn and Norm Smith medallist, Christian Petracca.”
