All set for the AFL Grand Final

21 September 2015

The AFL Grand Final is this weekend, and CitiPower is working with the Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) to ensure the electricity network will be ready for the big day.

As we do every year, we will also have additional crews on standby at the game.

CitiPower's Regional Business Manager Tim Middlehurst (left) together with the MCC Operations & Contracts Manager, Facilities Marshall Holding, check out the Arena Lighting System - also known as Grow Lights - at the MCG.

Since the completion of the new northern stand there is a lack of light and sun on the turf on the northern side of the MCG stadium. The Grow Lights are designed to improve turf growth during the winter months.

The AFL Grand Final between West Coast Eagles and Hawthorn is this Saturday 3 October, also a long weekend in Victoria.
