GF Ballot Barcode

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I know it's a long shot, but if anyone is away/won't be able to make the grand final and has a spare barcode that they won't use for the GF then it would be greatly appreciated for this 20 year old uni student in QLD.

PM me

You should ask for one for the Perth game, then use it for the GF ballot. Chances will be a lot higher 😏

Barcode sharing for GF could get very tricky.

People with successful purchases will need to provide photo id and the credit card used when picking up the tickets from the Ticketek outlets on the designated day or the MCG on GF day. Curious to see if they also match the name on the membership to the buyer.

You can have them sent to your mobile phone though DZ,  or is it different for the GF?

According to letter from MFC it’s different for the GF HB.

Tickets for successful members will be available for collection from all Victorian and selected interstate Ticketek outlets from 9am Tuesday September 25. Alternatively, from the Ticketek box office at the MCG on the day.

They also use e-tickets and QR codes, I believe.

If picking up, the ID would be for the credit card holder whos name was used to place the booking. Multiple bar codes can be used for the same entry.

Like most I’ll be keeping mine, sorry, but even if I gave it to you, we’d still have about the same chance of getting a ticket as mine’s a P3.

DeeZephyr is correct.  Extract from guidelines: 

Tickets for successful members will be available for collection from all Victorian and selected interstate Ticketek outlets from 9am Tues day September 25. Alternatively, Grand Final tickets can be collected from the Ticketek box office at the MCG (Gate 3 B) on Grand Final Day. Please note that only the credit card holder may collect the tickets and must present photo ID, the credit card used to purchase the tickets and the Ticketek Account Number. It is highly recommended that the credit card holder collects their tickets prior to Grand Final Day.  2018 Toyota AFL Grand Final tickets will not be posted.

I couldn't see a ref to electronic tickets, just email notifications of being successful.  A bit archaic really!

I was only wondering with us having to go and physically pick up the tickets if we would need to show any of the memberships. It’s not stated anywhere in the guidelines so it could be irrelevant anyway.

Yes, as I edited.

Anyone can use the barcodes. It's the credit card holder who must show ID. 

It would be unworkable for each member to pick up tickets with ID when a group booking was made.

Just to clarify, is this GF ballot for club members or AFL members?

Club members

AFL members with full/Gold membership will be guaranteed a ticket if their club of support makes it.

AFL Members with Silver membership (still on the waitlist for full) are unlikely to get a ticket. They can go in the club ballot though as their AFL membership also counts as a club membership for their club of support however it will not be the same barcode, you'll need to find your club barcode from recent club emails.

I believe Demon Zephyr's may be incorrect as it is actually the ticketek account that the tickets will be linked to, not the membership barcode, so I believe it will only be the credit card required at the ticketek place.

Let's get there now! GO DEES

I have a query regarding this paragraph on the Grand Final Ticketing Information:

Adult members may only purchase tickets at Adult prices and Concession and Junior members may only purchase at the Concession price only. There is no junior price for the AFL Grand Final. Members wishing to sit together must register their group in one transaction using one credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Diners). There is a maximum of eight (8) tickets per transaction and members should be aware that registrations with more than one ticket are ‘one in all in’ or ‘one out all out’; group registrations will not be split.

Does this mean that if I register a group of 6, and one name gets pulled out of the ballot, then all 6 get a ticket? Or does it mean that all 6 need to be successfully drawn in the ballot for the group to be successful in obtaining tickets?

Am I better to register in 3 groups of two?

I would ask the question of the club, but understandably, the membership department is under the pump, and there is quite a lengthy hold period.

i would imagine that the person logged onto the ticketek account is the only one who needs to be successful

i'm not sure if at the ballot time, that virtual seats are allocated but if so bear in mind that as time goes on in the ballot the availability of say 6 seats consecutive becomes less and less possible (compared to say 2,3,4 etc). so it may be wise to split to  smaller group.

This is getting a little confusing.

@Demonland any chance you can get someone from the membership/ticketing department on the podcast this week to answer our endless questions?

Might not be needed this year, but for future years....

Would anyone know, if I’m a Redleg member and I am guaranteed a GF ticket should MFC participate, where roughly I’d be seated?

The ballot will be done and dusted before the podcast but not a bad suggestion.

Is the "one in all in" or "one out all out" relevant to "Guaranteed" seats?

I think it might be if you register in a group with priority 2 members.

My hawks supporting partner (with grand final ticket purchasing experience) said to be careful of registering with those not guaranteed a ticket, as you would be relying on them being successful. If you are in a group with all guaranteed tickets, you should be fine.

No what it means is if you put in 6 tickets in the ballot and someone ends up saying "I can't afford it/can't go" bad luck! You either buy all 6 or you get nothing.

From what I can gather it could be anywhere. They just allocate the tickets based on what section you want or "best available". You might get lucky and be level 1 on the flank/pocket or you may get shunted up the top of level 4 somewhere.

I would think that if you are in Priority 1, you get drawn out of the ballot before priority 2/3 and therefore are more likely to get allocated better seats?

I mean look I don't care where I sit, but surely if you've forked out money for a priority 1 membership, you won't end up in crappier seats than someone who got picked from priority 2 group?

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s

    MUD HEAP by KC from Casey

    In the opening round of the 2018 VFL season, the Casey Demons enjoyed an emphatic 107 point victory over Coburg at Piranha Park. The team was loaded with Melbourne listed players (half a dozen of them were in the team that beat Fremantle on Saturday) and the side was in its way to a grand final appearance. A season and a half later, the club returned to the same venue in the hope of kick starting a season that had gone somewhat awry under new coach Sam Radford and while they tasted victory (as y

    PRETENDERS SENT PACKING by George on the Outer

    Fremantle, the Perth pretenders at sixth on the premiership table should have easily accounted for the Demons, sitting barely a game off the bottom of the ladder.   And for the majority of the game, it certainly looked that would be the case, until the final quarter, when the Demons stopped giving the Dockers easy chances, or making plain, dumb decisions. Not that their situation was helped by some simply appalling umpiring during the match, that kept gifting Fremantle easy scores.  Th

    ORWELLIAN by Whispering Jack

    Please permit me to begin this rather tragic pathetic preview of Melbourne’s forthcoming game against Fremantle with some personal reflections.   Two years ago, we had visitors staying with us who are all sports fans so we arranged tickets for the entire family for the Melbourne vs Fremantle game at the MCG. The Dockers were struggling at the time while the Demons were on the up and up so I was fairly confident about the outcome. Naturally, we all left the ground bitterly disappointed.

    PANTSED BY THE PIES by George on the Outer

    A 41 point loss to Collingwood, combined with yet another meagre output from the Melbourne forwards, saw the Demons pantsed by the Collingwood in the Queens Birthday match. For the nth week in a row, Melbourne failed to produce a score that would trouble most sides - it’s inaccuracy alone was again enough to seal the outcome. If that final score of 7.15 were 15.7, the game would have been very different. That sort of output was exactly a repeat of the previous week against Adelaide, when fo

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    It is truly amazing what a difference eight days can make in the life and times of a football club. It was a little over a week ago that the Casey Demons side were literally crushed into submission by the Werribee Tigers at Avalon Airport Oval. The losing margin in that game was not huge but the way they struggled to produce and cohesion in their play was obvious for all to see.  On Sunday at Casey Fields as part of heritage week, the team wore the Springvale FC jumper and made its own turn

    TEN YEARS AFTER by Whispering Jack

    There are many who would argue that Melbourne’s current woes go back a full decade to their Queens Birthday engagement of 2009 when the Demons selected a young VCE student Jack Watts to make his debut on the MCG in front of what was expected to be the club’s biggest crowd for a game described as the club’s “grand final in June”. That was the way of the world for the Dean Bailey coached Demons. The critics were skeptical of Melbourne’s decision to put a wet behind the ears schoolboy (albeit

    TOP END HEADING SOUTH by George on the Outer

    The Demons headed north for their annual game in Darwin, but the disappointing outcome could only mean they are heading south with the all too familiar failings happening again. A Sam Weideman mark and kick for goal with only 30 seconds remaining in the match could have won it for the Demons, but the kick slid sideways and the team went down by two points.  Sam may have been devastated, but the fact that the team could only kick 1 goal 8 behinds in the final quarter lays the blame at the fe

    MAYDAY by KC from Casey

    There’s not very much that can be said of the lacklustre performance of the Casey Demons at Avalon Airfield Oval against the Werribee Tigers on Saturday other than that it was woeful. There were however, a few small rays of hope for Demon fans, the main one being the display of defender Steven May from injury and to a lesser extent, Kade Kolodjashnij’s return after two months recovering from the effects of concussion. May was in stellar form down back, taking intercept marks, disposing of t

    POINT OF NO RETURN by the Oracle

    Conventional wisdom says that a club reaches the point of no return in the AFL competition if it has won less than four matches at the mid point of the season.  What this means for Melbourne is that in order for it to remain in the race for a top-eight position, it must start winning games now. Moreover, It's not enough to win the next game but it must also start stringing wins together to make up for its deficit in both wins and percentage.  With so much at stake there will be no excu

    A REAL DOWNER by KC from Casey

    When Sam Weideman kicked his third goal at the midpoint of the second quarter of Casey’s game at Downer Oval , Point Gellibrand on Sunday, he put his team 26 points ahead of the goalless Seagulls. Buoyed by the return from injury of Weideman and a number of other AFL-listed Melbourne players including Jordan Lewis, Mitch Hannan, and Jay Kennedy Harris and an impressive start to Jake Lever’s second game on return from his ACL surgery, the Demons were seemingly on top of the world.

    ANOTHER GIANT PROBLEM by George on the Outer

    On top of its injury problems Melbourne ran into an “in-form” GWS Giants at the MCG in a game which, apart from a final quarter junk-time spree served to highlight the club’s current problems. There’s a virtually non-existent forward line; a plethora of VFL standard players, who might be getting plenty of game experience but most will simply not be up to AFL standard; an inability to kick straight and an ability to waste simple opportunities so that they mustered up only one goal in the fir
