— Join us in Melbourne for the annual AFL Blockbuster of Collingwood v Essendon!


The annual Anzac Day Clash between Collingwood and Essendon is the second biggest game of the AFL season behind the Grand Final and is always an unforgettable match played to pay tribute to our fallen Anzac’s. Experience the fierce rivalry between two of AFL’s biggest clubs first hand with hospitality only moments from your seat. All Packages come with hospitality lunches (4+ to choose from). Accommodation is optional for those residing in Victoria, or for interstate visitors there’s fantastic value hotel and hospitality packages.  Hospitality kicks off pre-match with food, drinks, match records, celebrity speakers and quality entertainment—it’s the best way to warm up for the big game! After lunch; stroll to your reserved seat where you’ll be stunned by the minute of silence as almost 100,000 people pay their respects to our fallen diggers during The Last Post. Anzac Day AFL is an experience you will treasure for years to come and we can get you there with our Anzac Day AFL 2017 Packages.
