Return to Clubs

Carlton

The Carlton Football Club, nicknamed the Blues, is a professional Australian rules football club based in Melbourne. The club competes in the Australian Football League, and was one of the eight founding members of that competition in 1897. The club originally represented the suburb of Carlton in Melbourne’s inner north, and its nickname comes from the navy blue colour which it has traditionally worn in its playing uniform. It is based at Princes Park in Carlton, and played its home matches there throughout most of its history, but currently plays its home matches at either Docklands Stadium (currently known as Etihad Stadium) or the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Ghosts of Princes Park Tour

February 27, 2018, 7:30pm - February 27, 2018, 4:00am

With the dawning of the New Year comes the summoning of old spirits...only this time from the grandstands encircling Carlton’s spiritual home. By popular demand the Ghosts of Princes Park Tour returns, with willing participants escorted on eerie exploration of the Gardiner, Heroes and Pratt Stands as they rally the spirits of Clover, Chitty and Vallence. Led by club historian Tony De Bolfo, tourists are each handed a lantern sure to put them within eyeshot of an apparition . . . perhaps that of Robert Menzies, perhaps Jack Worrall . . . who knows? The stands at Princes Park form imposing backdrops for all those on tour – men, women and children each bound by Blue who identify with the famed Carlton bastion of 962 games through 109 winters. So relive the battle, feel the passion and encounter a ghost or two.
