AFL Executive General Manager Customer and Commercial Kylie Rogers said the AFL was looking forward to seeing as many fans back at the football as possible.


"We have an incredible end to the best NAB AFLW season and an unbelievable start to the AFL season, with the Festival of Football featuring five blockbuster matches in five days to kick off the 2022 Toyota AFL Premiership season," Ms Rogers said.


"The Victorian Festival of Footy and the first round of the men’s season is shaping up to be our biggest round of footy ever.

"We want to see as many fans as possible back in stadium and our special $22 tickets for 22 hours hopefully gives footy fans who were thinking about going to a game incentive to get their tickets and be part of our city coming alive again.

"We have activations in Yarra Park at the MCG for families and fans, entertainment across the round and five great match ups between all 10 Victorian clubs.

"Ticket sales have been really strong across the round so far and hopefully we can break the all-time single round attendance record of over 400,000 fans attending a game in Round One.

"I want to thank the Victorian State Government and all our Victorian clubs, especially the home teams in week one for getting behind the Festival of Footy and delivering a great spectacle for all."

The MCG and Marvel Stadium will be at 100 per cent capacity for Round One of the 2022 Toyota AFL Premiership Season beginning Wednesday March 16 at the MCG.
