THE OFFICIAL
COLLINGWOOD
ILLUSTRATED
ENCYCLOPEDIA
2012 Edition

This new and updated edition contains everything you ever wanted to know about Collingwood including a gripping account of the drawn Grand Final in 2010, Dane Swan's 2011 Brownlow Medal win and a moving account of Mick Malthouse's final days with the team as he struggled to control his emotions following the club's epic three-point win in the 2011 preliminary final against Hawthorn.

"Collingwood has a proud culture, history and tradition 
[and] this book is already part of that culture. 
Think of it not as a reservoir of what’s been,
but a reason for what’s to come"

 
Eddie McGuire. President, Collingwood Football Club

       


headspace Collingwood

Opened by the Federal Minister for Mental Health and Ageing,
the Hon. Mark Butler, Collingwood headspace is set to become a major presence at the revamped Victoria Park site for years to come. The centre occupies the first floor of the former Bob Rose Social Club building, which housed the Collingwood Boardroom and iconic Social Club Bar.

Ms McCarthy also acknowledged the good work of the Magpies in contributing $1 million directly toward the creation of headspace Collingwood, which will operate out of the newly-named Collingwood Football Club Community Centre.

“Collingwood’s generous contribution has ensured that its former home will live on as a vital community facility and for that they should be congratulated.”

The upgrade of the Bob Rose Social Club building is part of a $7.2 million revamp of Victoria Park that will see it become one of the best co-located community services centres in Australia. The redevelopment has been funded by the City of Yarra, the Victorian State Government and Collingwood Football Club Foundation.

The launch was attended by Magpies player Heath Shaw, Richmond player Dan Jackson and ‘First Bloke’ Tim Mathieson, the latter two attendees being headspace ambassadors.

Shaw said headspace Collingwood, and broader redevelopment, was a bricks-and-mortar testament to the Magpies’ commitment to supporting the community.

“‘The Collingwood Football Club is committed to treating everyone with respect and to welcoming all regardless of their status in society,” Shaw said.



 Should dogs be banned from the oval at Victoria Park?  

The remains of hundreds of Collingwood people rest on the oval at Victoria Park

Despite Yarra City providing more than adequate facilities for owners to clean up 
after their animals, dog excrement continues to present a serious health risk
to all users of the oval

Dog urine is destroying large patches of the recently installed 
special drought resistant turf

Victoria Park was a gift to the "citizens of Collingwood"  
NOT TO THE DOGS OF YARRA CITY

Collingwood Football Club VFL games

In 2009, Council gave the Collingwood Football Club (CFC) permission to play its VFL home games at Victoria Park. Permission was given for the VFL team to play nine games per year at Victoria Park in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

In March 2012, Council was advised by the Collingwood Football Club that there is no longer a requirement for its VFL games at Victoria Park to be fully enclosed. This follows discussions between the CFC and the Victorian Football League.

There will be no requirement for Collingwood to erect temporary fencing around the stadium or to charge for entry. This means residents from across Yarra will be able to attend all games for free.

Previously, Council and the CFC had provided free season passes for the Collingwood VFL home games to residents who live near Victoria Park. These passes will not be distributed this year as residents are now able to attend for free whenever they wish.
