Match Day Access & Inclusivity


We are committed to creating an inclusive and accessible match day experience that welcome a diverse Tiger Army.

By being a member of the Richmond Football Club you're also an important member of the Sunflower Program. You can help make the invisible, visible.

We want to ensure game days are accessible for everyone, below are links and information to help your day (or a partner's, friends, family member's day) be the best it can be. The below information is currently specific to the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower

What is it? The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower was established in 2016, and it exists to help people living with disabilities that are not immediately obvious. Wearing the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower discreetly indicates to people around the wearer including staff, colleagues and health professionals that they need additional support, help or a little more time.

The Richmond Football Club is proudly participating in the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Lanyard scheme. This means that those with a hidden disability who can wear a Sunflower lanyard, wristband or some other visible item, can make their disability visible to our Richmond staff. Whether the location be at our Club or at the MCG, our staff will help you with any support or adjustments you may need.

If you're attending the live footy action, the MCG gently encourages you to wear your Sunflower every time you visit. Event day supervisors and selected staff members have been trained to recognise the Sunflower and provide you with the appropriate assistance during your visit. Some staff may also choose to wear a Sunflower supporter pin so if you feel comfortable, you can also approach these staff members with any questions you may have and they will be happy to help.

A sensory-friendly space, presented by the MCC Foundation, is now open at the MCG and offers visitors some quiet and calm on event day no matter the size of the crowd. Located within the Australian Sports Museum on Level 1 (inside Gate 3, behind bay M51) is a space for all ages who have sensory sensitivities.

AUSLAN interpreter
We (alongside the MCG) introduced live captioning and an AUSLAN interpreter at home games. These initiatives are to help those who may find it difficult to hear the match day hosts.
