Event Info


Thursday 17 May 2018


Melbourne Cricket Ground Members Reserve area.
Entry is via Gate 2.


Over 1,000 participants and volunteers will spend the night at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), raising $800,000 to support young people experiencing homelessness in Victoria. Being a participant means committing to actively fundraise. To make it simple for you to do this, you will have a personal fundraising page on the Sleep at the ’G website. You can use this page to inspire supporters and collect donations – securely. 


Your cost of registration covers your entry into the MCG, cardboard box to sleep on, dinner (soup), coffee, tea and a basic breakfast. 

  • Initial Release: $40 per sleeper
  • Early bird: $55 per sleeper
  • General release: $75 per sleeper 

This goes some way towards the $800,000 needed to help young people who are experiencing homelessness. What really makes the difference though, is the money you and your team raise from your supporters, sponsors, friends and family.

Your fundraising is the life-changer! Read more about fundraising.

So much more than a sleepover...

Sleep at the ’G is a unique opportunity to get your friends and colleagues together – along with more than 1,000 other compassionate people – and join in the conversation about homelessness.

On the night you’ll learn more about the issues facing young people, and hear first-hand from youth who’ve experienced homelessness. You’ll also meet our incredible team of youth workers – and get powerful insight on the fight to end youth homelessness.

Best of all, it’s an unforgettably great night to share with friends and colleagues!

There’s team-building activities, street performers, hot pies and a range of speakers you can choose from all under the roof of the mighty MCG.  Bring your own fun too – games, instruments, costumes and your fabulous PJs are all welcome!

Progress so far
