FOOTY fans around the country will have unprecedented access to their favourite grounds for a kick after the siren, thanks to an expanded Macca's Kick 2 Kick program this year.
Macca's Kick 2 Kick will be offered at more than 85 games during the 2018 Toyota Premiership season – including matches at the MCG, Etihad Stadium, GMHBA Stadium, Adelaide Oval and Metricon Stadium.
For the first time this year, selected Sydney Swans matches at the SCG will be included in the Macca's Kick 2 Kick program, along with Fremantle's matches at the new Optus Stadium in Perth, Giants matches at both Spotless Stadium and UNSW Canberra Oval, and Brisbane matches at the GABBA.
Macca's Kick 2 Kick ambassadors Jack Riewoldt, Moana Hope, Dayne Zorko, Isaac Heeney and Bradley Hill were on hand for the announcement – helping junior players brush-up on their kicking skills on the hallowed turf of the MCG.
McDonald's spokesperson Adam Kelly, said Macca's was thrilled to provide the opportunity to fans young and old.
"Together with the AFL, we are delighted to be able to help bring footy fans closer to the game, and enjoy Macca's Kick 2 Kick after the siren at selected matches during the AFL's Premiership Season. 2018 will be our biggest ever season, with Macca's Kick 2 Kick being offered at more games around the country than ever before," Mr Kelly said.
AFL General Manager of Game Development, Andrew Dillon, said the expanded Macca's Kick 2 Kick program was an exciting development for fans.
"Macca's Kick 2 Kick is one of the most popular and loved activities for families at AFL matches, enabling fans to emulate their heroes moments after the final siren at more matches this year thanks to Macca's," Mr Dillon said.
