A Brief Overview

Commemorate the fallen at the AFL Anzac Day Blockbuster between Collingwood and Essendon in 2020.

The annual AFL Anzac Day clash is the second biggest game of the AFL season behind the Grand Final and is always an unforgettable experience. You can be there live, as two of the biggest clubs in the game put everything on the line to pay tribute to our fallen Anzacs.

Experience the fierce rivalry first hand with a Travel Package including Official Hospitality, match tickets, accommodation and extra travel services. Hospitality is the best way to warm up for the big game. Choose from a nearby venue (Crown Palladium or The Glasshouse at Olympic Park) or onsite at the MCG, before strolling to your reserved seat where you will be stunned by the minute of silence during The Last Post as almost 100,000 fans pay their respects. A truly unique experience.

You will treasure your AFL Anzac Day experience for years to come no matter which team you support!

We look forward to welcoming you to the mighty MCG in April 2020.
