Getting There: (PTV Journey Planner)
Car
- Located on the corner of Williamstown Road and Ingles Street, Port Melbourne. Parking immediately outside and around the ground along Williamstown Road, Ingles Street, Woodruff Street and Bertie Street, as per signage (parking around the Ingles Street wing entrance will be limited due to the TV broadcast vehicles/equipment).

Public transport
- Take the Route 109 tram (Port Melbourne - Box Hill) to North Port light rail station. Short walk up Raglan Street to the ground.

- Take the Route 235 bus (City - Fisherman's Bend via Williamstown Road) to the Ingles St / Williamstown Road stop right outside the ground.

Last Time They Met:
Round 21, 2016 at Whitten Oval
Footscray 16.9.105, def
Collingwood 10.13.73

Head to Head:
Played: 4
Collingwood: 1
Footscray: 3

How They Fared Last Week:
Collingwood - A well earned week off!

Footscray 13.16.94, def
Essendon 10.15.75

The Stakes:
The winner will advance through to the 2016 Grand Final, to face either Casey or Williamstown, at Docklands Stadium on Sunday September 25th. The loser, it goes without saying, is out.

Trivia:
- This will be Collingwood's first appearance in a Preliminary Final since 2009. On that day, the Magpies lost the 1st Preliminary Final to North Ballarat by 61 points, after trailing by just 3 points at half time.

- If Collingwood win, Dale Tapping will overtake the VFL Magpies' only other finals coach (winning and otherwise), Gavin Brown, for wins. Both are currently equal on finals victories, with 2 apiece. Brown coached Collingwood to four finals appearances in 2009 and 2010, while Tapping has led the Maggies into five finals matches since 2013, with this coming Preliminary Final to be his sixth.

Truth be told, I would rather be facing Geelong. Both Essendon and the Dogs have well and truly had our measure the last couple of times, while we have been Geelong's master for several years now. That being said, we're coming in fresh and rested and history suggests that the week off is usually the deciding factor in these kinds of games.

We do go in with a good form line and our post-bye record is excellent this year (won all 3 games after a week's rest in 2016). You could call us flag favourites, given we knocked off the reigning premiers last week, our perennial bogey team. And you could certainly argue that it's a better sample than Casey's trashing of a depleted Footscray.

Without getting ahead of ourselves, I do think a Casey vs Collingwood Grand Final is the most likely scenario.

Our VFL president Marcus Wagner confirmed the day on From Lulie Street during the week, while the VFL website confirmed the time.

If there's any change, it'll be posted here.

Capacity is listed at 12,000.

No reserved areas anywhere. It's a first come, first served, first choice system.

I haven't heard of lockouts at VFL games in modern times, but if Essendon win through, there's a sneaky chance this could be the first one in a while...

Never had one myself, but someone whose opinion I trust has. His verdict was that the Burraburger is like Big Foot: spoken about often and in reverence, but with not much substance to it...
