Road closure
Brunton Avenue will be completely closed to vehicle traffic in both directions from 5:00pm until 11:00pm.

Arrive Early
Security measures such as bag checks and patron scanning will again be in place as fans make their way into the stadium.
This process will take time, so please be patient - and limit the number of bags you bring. Each bag will be inspected, so the more bags you bring the longer it will take. It is recommended that fans arrive by 6:30pm, as those who arrive later may miss the pre-match events, teams running out and/or the start of the match.

Selling fast! The only way to secure premium reserved seating for our Season Opener clash v Carlton is by attending our Beyond the Boundary function.
