This ANZAC Day eve will be the fourth time Melbourne take on Richmond and with a huge crowd expected it will be one of the biggest games for the season!
Come along and join our Demon Army in supporting the boys as we look to bounce back against last year’s premiers.
This is only the second time the clash will be a Melbourne home game and we will be hoping to turn around the result from last year after Richmond’s come-from-behind victory.
Fans are encouraged to arrive at the game early so they don’t miss out on the pre-match ceremony, which continues to grow in profile. The ceremony will kick off at 6.45pm highlighted by the lighting of the cauldron on the Ponsford Stage followed by the playing of the Last Post.
The flame will be collected from the Shrine of Remembrance by legend of the game Ron Barassi. It will then be carried to the MCG by the Creswick Light Horses. Make sure you pay these horses a visit outside gates 2 & 3 before the game!
