Built 1900 - Demolished 1928

The 'Cowshed', as it was affectionately known was constructed for the weaker sex.  Some have gone so far as to say they wanted to keep the ladies out of the way.  What is known, is that the women that have supporter the Collingwood Football Club have been amongst the most passionate and loyal of all supporters in the league, male or female.  Nevertheless, prejudices of the time resulted in a lot of things that we look upon today as rediculous.
