Getting there

If you’re driving to Geelong on Friday, keep in mind peak-hour traffic and leave as early as possible to beat the afternoon rush.

Geelong is 75km from Melbourne via the Westgate Bridge and Princes Highway.

When you arrive in Geelong the Princes Highway becomes Latrobe Terrace (no turns required) - the stadium’s main entrance is off Latrobe Terrace.

Via train Geelong is around one hour from Melbourne’s Southern Cross Station, with Geelong Railway Station situated 1.8km to the north of the stadium and South Geelong Station located 450m to the east.

The V/Line and Public Transport Victoria websites have the most up-to-date Melbourne to Geelong timetable.


Public car parking is available at GMHBA Stadium and surrounding Kardinia Park at $10 per car.

Limited parking is also available in the surrounding streets – please note Council Restrictions are enforced.

A drop-off zone is available near the A10 car park.

Membership and merchandise

Purchase, renew or collect your 2019 membership at our marquee located at Gate 13 from 5.30pm.

Fresh 2019 merchandise will also be available for purchase at Gate 13 – deck yourself out in the latest Storm gear for our first game of the year!

Game format and halftime entertainment

The trial match will be played in 4 x 20 minute quarters, with a Touch Football Victoria showcase game at the main break.

There is no curtain raiser on Friday, but arrive early to secure a good seat to watch the boys warm up. See you in Geelong!

*Booking fees apply.
