Footy Fever is at its hottest
It's that one day in September…well now it's stretched to a week for footy fanatics and those who try to ignore the footy all year but can't resist the grand final.

AFL Grand Final action is on every day at Fed Square in the week prior to the AFL Grand Final Week. All stops have been pulled out for a free packed program of entertainment including music, performances, live broadcasts and a chance to meet the players live at the square. Unless it's a draw the MCG will be open to the public on the Sunday after the game for families to enjoy.

As a family of footy tragics these are wonderful ideas for the kids - and adults - in the lead up to the Grand Final ...especially Open Day at the MCG.
