PIES PRECINCT TAKEOVER
Too much Collingwood is never enough. Want proof?

From football to netball, from the AFL to the VFL, there will be ample opportunity to watch the Black and White in all its glory.
And the opponents? Well, we’d rather call them our rivals.
We’ll be facing our cross-town rivals, the Melbourne Vixens, while the football teams will take on Carlton and its feeder sides.
It’s safe to say it will be a huge day, and we want all Collingwood supporters to be a part of it.
