The week leading into each event date will see increased activity around Victoria Park. Specifically, from Friday through to Monday on each event weekend, being the main period large equipment will be bumped in or out. Following the conclusion of each match, venue staff will ensure the venue is cleaned and accessible for all members of the community. This includes the removal of all event waste, cable ties, and the re-opening of venue gates.

Car parks along Abbot Street, Turner Street and Bath Street will be impacted for event day operations.

Noise Levels

The Collingwood Football Club has undertaken careful planning to ensure that the event complies with the City of Yarra’s amplified sound requirements. Timings of amplified noise will be pre-game, quarter time and half-time breaks and post-game. This includes the game siren and in case of any emergency announcements. A scheduled sound check will take place half an hour prior to gates opening at each event day.
