Spud's Game: It's time 2 talk

It's time to talk, with Friday night marking the second annual Spud's Game, aiming to reduce the risk of suicide in the community, and look after our mates. 

The game will be delayed by two minutes following speeches by AFL greats Tim Watson and Nathan Burke to encourage us to go beyond the banter and take action for the mental health of our mates.

The match will also raise life-saving funds to deliver pioneering mental health and suicide prevention programs through the Danny Frawley Centre.

Explore the Spud's Game hub of the St Kilda Football Club here, which details everything you need to know about this cause. 


Tickets for Round 14 are now available for Reserved Bay members to redeem, or General Admission access members who wish to upgrade their seat.

Members - please check your email for detailed instructions from our Membership Team on how this process will work for you.

Cultural Gift Exchange

Ahead of every game this season an Indigenous player will join the captain at every coin toss to take part in a cultural gift exchange. Championed by newly appointed Indigenous Development Manager Aunty Katrina Amon, the move is designed to continue to embrace Indigenous culture within the club.

Need to talk to our Membership Team?

Due to the high volume of phone calls and emails the team are getting at the moment, we'd recommend getting to the game early and visiting our Membership Team at the Club Hub opposite Gate 2 to get assistance before the game. We will also have staff located at Gate 7 on match day.

Get there early

Have your mobile ticket ready.

Everyone will have a designated gate and entry on ticket but getting to the venue early will mean you have plenty of time to get organised/find the spot for entry.

You can only enter via the Gate noted on your ticket.

At Marvel

Marvel Stadium redevelopment works have begun and there are some changes to the concourse that may affect you when entering the ground:

- Entry gates are available all around the stadium apart from Gate 2 which is currently closed – please enter via the gate on your ticket.

- The concourse might look a little different on the city side of the stadium, with some hoarding in place around Gate 2 and Gate 5.

- Once you enter the stadium there is no change to the experience, you are free to move around, visit the food and beverage outlets, or any of the amenities. 

- To comply with the current Marvel Stadium policies, all food, beverage and merchandise outlets will be cashless, however Eftpos and credit card facilities are of course available.
