Grab a pre-footy bite and bevvie VIP style
Love the footy? Keen for an ultimate footy experience?

If you're up for making a day of it, you can pre-book your tickets to the exclusive Member's Lounge at Riverland for some pre-game festivities. A VIP experience for all AFL fans, Melbourne's iconic Riverland Bar has launched an exclusive Member's Lounge area with prime riverside views.

Footy fanatics get (in conjunction with their admission ticket to any game at the MCG) two hours of pre-game footy eats coupled with a selection of unlimited beer and wine.

Tickets can be booked for any game in the season held at the 'G apart from Anzac Day and finals series.

Fill up on hearty eats such as macaroni & cheese bombs, fried chicken sliders and empanadas; as well as classic footy favourites including meat pies, dim sims, and mini hot dogs. To top things off, the short stroll to the 'G will be even sweeter with a 'churro to go' – think warm peanut butter and chocolate sauce.

The Member's Lounge will have punters cheering with tickets available for only $59 per person. Seating is available for groups of 4-16 and the event opens 2 hours prior to game time. The event closes 45 minutes before kickoff so you'll have plenty of time to walk to the venue.

"Riverland Bar has served a loyal footy crowd before and after the game for 12 seasons so we know how to provide good times," says Joel Watts, venue manager, "but more recently we've spotted an opportunity to really elevate that pre-game experience."

Tickets to the Member's Lounge must be pre-booked and are certain to sell out fast. Visit for bookings for the entire footy season.

Member's Lounge tickets are available now for all future games of the season at $59 per person via
