Ever wanted to dunk Kevin Sheedy?

Well, the time has come, with the Bombers legend set to enter the Fujitsu Dunk Tank at the club's Family Day on Saturday.

For $5 per handball, you'll have the chance to send 'Sheeds' - plus a few of your favourite Bombers - into a pool of water.

If you're successful, Fujitsu will donate $10 for every dunk to Wildlife Victoria and the Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund in support of bushfire relief.

Family Day will begin at 10am on Saturday at the Melbourne Showgrounds, featuring player signing sessions, face paintings, show rides, merchandise outlets and so much more.

The club’s membership team will also be on-site to help anyone become a Mighty Bomber member for the 2020 season if they haven’t already. 

Family Day details

Date: Saturday, February 1

Time: 10am-2pm

Venue: Grand Pavilion, Melbourne Showgrounds
