In Melbourne, Aussie Rules Footy is a cultural obsession, drawing crowds in excess of 90,000 to matches weekly. Get swept up in the excitement of this physical, fast-paced game with a passionate local host to help make the experience fun and engaging and spend some time before or after the game learning to kick a footy by the MCG Stadium.


Be picked up from your hotel by a footy-crazed Localing host. We will leave plenty of time to absorb the action as we make our way to the game.

Arrive at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and spend some time learning to kick a footy outside the ground picking up a few basics about the game.

Head inside Australia’s biggest stadium displaying your team colours in a new scarf or hat to help you fit in with the locals. Your seats will be right in the heart of the action with a great view across the oval from which to enjoy your first AFL footy game.

Your host will duck out to grab drinks and snacks as needed to ensure you’re fed and contented and can soak in the atmosphere in comfort. Warm clothes for those cold night games help with that!

Enjoy plenty of wonderful stories about the rich history of Aussie Rules footy, the nation’s obsession with sport and how it differs around the country, as well as getting plenty of tips for understanding and enjoying the game.

Your host will see you back to your hotel safely after the match or into the city if you’re too damn buzzed to go home.
