Pack your sleeping bag and don your warmest flannels — Melbourne's annual mass sleepover is returning for another year. The house you'll be heading to? None other than the MCG.

Yep, the MCG. But instead of 100,000 screaming footy fans, the ground will host around 1800 sleepers for the largest mass sleeper event ever in the city. Hosted by Melbourne City Mission, the event raises awareness and funds to support youth homelessness in Melbourne. You'll be kept entertained with live music, handball competitions run by AFL players, giveaways and even guided meditation to help you fall asleep. Come dressed in your best sleep attire for the sleepwear fashion competition and learn about the core challenges of homelessness that over 6000 young people face in Melbourne.

Registration costs $70, and includes a cardboard box to sleep on, a dinner of warm soup, coffee, tea and a basic breakfast the following morning. You're encouraged to raise further funds with your fam and friends to help Melbourne City Mission reach its goal of $1.2 million.

While you don't actually get to sleep on the hallowed turf (sorry, footy fans), but, still, there's still nothing quite like sleeping at the 'G. There's also nothing quite like sleeping outside on the brink of Melbourne winter, which should help you realise the magnitude of what it means to be homeless. If you can't make it on the night, you can show your support by donating here.
