24 Impacts of COVID-19

  • Due to the impacts of COVID-19 there is still great uncertainty on what season 2021 may look like however our number one priority is to get you to the footy and to do so safely. This means there could be reduced crowd capacity at games, particularly at the MCG.
  • If you hold a reserved seat, your seat will still remain in your name and you’ll be able to access it as soon as it is safe to do so.
  • More information about game access for 2021 will be communicated closer to the season.
  • 2021 access membership fees are based on a standard season with 22 home and away games. Should the length of the season be impacted, Collingwood will be in touch with access members to advise changes to their membership benefits.
