16th March, 2022
With 100 per cent crowd capacity now allowed at the MCG, Marvel Stadium and GMHBA Stadium, it’s time to get back to AFL live action at your favourite ground.
And with 13cabs, getting to the footy is easy and affordable, because when you book your ride to the game on the 13cabs app, you get a price guarantee and no surge, ever.
So, what’s on the AFL live agenda for the first week of the 2022 season?
A rematch of the 2021 Toyota AFL Grand Final will kick things off as reigning Premiers Melbourne unfurl their flag and take on the Western Bulldogs at the MCG in a Wednesday night showpiece.
Carlton and Richmond then resume their traditional Thursday night Round One rivalry at the MCG, followed by the St Kilda vs Collingwood blockbuster at Marvel Stadium on Friday night.
Geelong will host Essendon for their annual Country Game at the MCG in a traditional Saturday afternoon timeslot of 2:10pm, and Hawthorn vs North Melbourne will round out the footy festival at the MCG on Sunday March 20 at 1:10pm.
To help you get to the game in time for the bounce (and home again afterwards) here’s where the taxi ranks are at every ground. And remember, you don’t need to jump in the first taxi in the queue. If you have the 13cabs app, you can request to ride with us and link your journey in the app by tapping the ‘Street Hail’ button and following the prompts.

– Jolimont Terrace.

The nearest taxi rank to Marvel Stadium is located outside Car Parks A and B, adjacent to the NAB building on the Bourke Street extension. Please note, taxis are not permitted to enter any of Marvel Stadium’s Car Parks, as these are non-stopping areas, however taxis for passengers with mobility impairments are permitted entry.
