UPDATE: There will be no public parking at the MCG for Sunday's Essendon-Collingwood clash after heavy rain over the weekend, the Melbourne Cricket Club has advised.

However, there will be limited parking space available in Yarra Park via all gates for the following groups:

- disabled permit holders
- emergency services personnel
- media
- event staff
- passholders

Preview: Essendon v Collingwood

The MCC has advised it expects those areas to be filled well before the match's starting time of 3.20pm AEST.

Patrons attending the game are encouraged to arrive early or use public transport to travel to the ground. 

The closure of Yarra Park for public parking followed Saturday's Melbourne-Geelong game at the MCG, where parking was strictly limited after wet weather on Friday.
