Important Grand Final Information
SUPPORTER ACCESS At both Greenway and Manuka the Tigers will use changerooms at the northern end of the main grandstand. Tigers supporters are encouraged to gather at that end. At Manuka supporters are encouraged to gather in the Hawke Stand (which is at the Manuka Pool end of the main Bradman Stand.) Clubs can decorate this area from 3pm to 5pm on Friday, 1 September 2017 or game day (from 8am).
There will be barricades up to prevent access to the far side of the ground for spectators at Manuka. All amenities – canteens, toilets etc are on the Bradman side. No amenities will be open on the far side of the ground.
FOOTBALL RECORD Finals Records (whilst in stock) will be available at no charge.
NO ALCOHOL In addition to other conditions of entry, it should be noted that no alcohol is to be brought into the venues by clubs, players or spectators. All bags and vehicles should be searched on entry and any alcohol found may be seized. Alcohol can be supplied by either the canteen or venue caterers.
SMOKE AND DOG FREE Greenway Oval and Manuka Oval are both smoke and dog free at all times. Patrons failing to comply with this will be asked to leave the venue.
PARKING There is limited internal parking at Greenway Oval. It will be available on a first-come-first-served basis. No cars will be allowed to park inside Manuka Oval. Supporters are encouraged to pay close attention to street parking signs and not park on nature strips. Experience would suggest that parking inspectors will be out in force.
ENTERING THE PLAYING ARENA Spectators will be permitted to enter the playing arena at quarter time and three quarter time but must not take food or drink onto the playing arena.
The two 50m arcs are reserved for warm-ups for the teams competing in the next game i.e. teams using the left hand change rooms will use the left hand 50m arc (to goal)
There is no access to the playing field at half time in First Grade at Manuka due to Auskick.
POST MATCH AT THE TIGERS CLUB Post-match awards will be held at an appropriate time back at the Tigers Licensed Club when players and supporters have gathered there. Given it will likely be a busy night for the bistro and the bar, we ask for your patience.
