General info: Ikon Park double-header

Blues News | JLT 2 Emily Angwin brings you all the news from Ikon Park as the Blues prepare for their second JLT Community Series clash against St Kilda.

Footy returns to the Blues’ hallowed turf this Saturday with both Carlton squads set to line up in a double-header at Ikon Park. 

Carlton will face the Western Bulldogs from 11:35am in Round 5 of the NAB AFL Women’s before the Blues’ 2:05pm clash against St Kilda in the JLT Community Series.

A ticket to the JLT Community Series match will need to be purchased in order to gain entry to support Carlton’s women’s and men’s teams. 

While Blues access members are entitled to free entry (subject to capacity), members are advised to purchase a general admission ticket for $5 or upgrade to a reserved seat to secure a spot in the stands.

With a large crowd expected to flock to Ikon Park on Saturday, supporters with general admission tickets are advised to arrive early.

And with limited on-street car parking available, public transport will be the best way to get to the Blues’ home base.
