Footy: Carlton v Adelaide; Collingwood v Bulldogs - last weekend for free footy activities!

This weekend at Etihad Stadium it's bound to be another bumper round as teams try desperately to hang onto their spots for the finals.

Tomorrow (Sat, 29th Aug) Carlton takes on Adelaide during a twilight match that starts at 4.10pm (gates open at 2pm). While on Sunday (30th Aug), Collingwood will battle it out with Western Bulldogs who sit just below them at fourth on the ladder. The game will commence at 4.40pm - note there is a late state to this twilight game.

If you're planning to attend either game, consider arriving by boat in to the Waterfront City Marina and docking at any of the public berths available. From here it's a short walk to the Etihad Stadium. Bookings are essential, please phone Melbourne Docklands Marine on (03) 9658 8738 or email
