So we can definitely buy them online yes?

Does anyone know what is the go if you want to buy a ticket for a non member? How can I guarantee they can sit with us members?
I want to drag my better half along, as he has never seen us lose a game. He literally got home and sat down in front of the TV after West Coast got in front in the last... and then we kicked 3 goals and won the game. He is our good luck charm, and I am not messing with that!

Yes, can buy on line.

To get both tickets simultaneously during the member priority purchase period:  1) Use finals ticket details from a member not going.  2) buy him a 3-game (or higher) membership before August 24 (Cost $105+).

Or, buy both when tickets go on sale to the general public ie after member priority period closes.

Members tickets technically are non transferrable, and in the time since we last played, the league and MCG have been pretty aggressive with regards to that. I've seen both someone's MCC membership revoked (2012), and had my dad's AFL Gold membership downgraded to silver for 12 months when I went with a mate to watch a final in 2010 and gave him that membership to use. Now I believe it's a straight up revoke. All types of membership have in the T&Cs that you may be asked for ID.

Here is the info on buying finals tickets.  http://www.afl.com.au/tickets/finals/finals-ticket-on-sale-dates

Week 1 – Elimination and Qualifying Finals (September 7-9)

Competing Club Members
9am - 1pm Tuesday August 28 (venue local time)

General Public
2pm Tuesday August 28 (venue local time)

AFL Members
9am - 1pm Wednesday August 29 (venue local time) 

 

Also worth noting is the ticket outlet depends on which ground the final is held:

Ticketek for MCG, SCG.

Ticketmaster for Optus Stadium, Spotless stadium (if GWS???)

Etihad not metioned.  We will know more on Sunday night.

 

Not sure if tickets can be purchased in person at nominated retail outlets.  I called a couple in the Bayside area and they didn't know too much about them...

So watch this space on Sunday night..

 

I can't believe it is happening... too happy for words...image.png.d08a85b52f8f4ca62a648e700539c9a7.png

Depending on the expected crowd, usually you can buy multiple tickets per membership. For example my cousin has a Richmond membership and he got me a ticket to the Elimination Final vs Carlton in 2013. $80 a ticket though, not cheap!!

question:

As an AFL Member with club support, does that mean I am part of the "competing club" category on the tuesday, or afl members?

This will help answer that question.

On another note - I believe the club will send members an email with ticketing info.  Extract from club correspondence: 

We will be sending an email to members with their barcodes and full details about how to purchase finals tickets on Sunday.  

The barcode is different to the member number, it is on the back of the card but we will confirm it via email as well.

Thanks Guys. I assume as the home team we will mostly be congregated at the Punt Rd end, or is it at AFL discretion?

The final round has finished and we are talking about finals tickets instead of draft picks.

How refreshing.

Sorry to be very Melbourne-esque but does anyone know how it works with MCC tickets?

Can you reserve seats online for the MCC like you can in Queens Birthday/ Anzac Day Eve etc.? Or just have to queue and find a seat?

Welcome to Demonland. I don't believe you will be sitting in the area you usually sit in but as a reserved seat member you will most likely be sitting in a bay with other Dees fans.

Hi everyone! If anyone is a Member and isn't going to be attending - my younger brother and sister would love to get to the game and it would be greatly appreciated if we could use your membership code to buy tickets as part of the first purchase group. Cheers and Go Dees!

You choose the seat you want when you buy the tickets.  Club will send details on how to get tickets so keep an eye on your email inbox!  See my post #38 just above yours for more info.

Great to have another female posting - there are precious few! 🙂
