2019 Membership

Recommended Posts

just completed the club survey.

suggested that they somehow strike a deal with the companies that provide drinks at the venues to have MFC logo/ branding on cups etc. obviously logistics and cost would be big, but IMO it would be awesome to drink a beer with the logo on the side @ the games. make it exclusive to reinforce that we are the only home team at the venue. serve drinks in MFC cups @ all games! feck em!!

When does the auto payments happen? 

Dedicated Demon Annual – full amount deducted from your credit card on 25th October each year.

Dedicated Demon Monthly – your annual membership fee is divided into ten monthly instalments (November to August) and deducted monthly from your credit card on the first business day of each month. Payments commence upon receipt of your application, or on 1 November for rolling payment plans.

https://membership.melbournefc.com.au/dedicated-demon

 

Not related to your query - we should see a big flip in membership numbers after Oct 25, then again after Nov 1 when the rollovers happen!

Anyone purchased GF guarentee? 229 is a bit of a gamble

I'm going to. If we make it it's worth twice that.

The GF ticket itself would be 400$ on top of the guarantee

Have been keenly awaiting an update! 

1,053 (3.8%) up on same time last year:  27,610 on Nov 30, 2017.  Thought we would have had a bigger leap on the back of the finals attendances but a good start, nonetheless.

we need roughly a 10% increase to hit 50k so a 3.8% increase is not going to cut it. AFL club support were also rolled over last week so not sure if they are in the figures.

TBH the membership figures mean little if clubs are going to continue including 3 game memberships etc in the same category.

Post their 2016 GF Bulldogs had a waiting list for their GFG category. MFC have never had one to my knowledge. That could be a good goal for the 2019 year.

Interesting that back in October I was going to upgrade my membership to Redleg or Tridents but they were full. So no choice but to stay with a standard membership.

I might add that when I mentioned this to Mrs OD she said just as well we are away for six weeks next footy season. After checking I will miss three home games so I guess the MFC saved me.

However it does raise the issue that only GA memberships are available from October forward.

Will GA prices start rising for the 2020 season?

Interestingly I rang the club yesterday to enquire about the prices for GFG. Was told that I wouldn't get the packages relating to seating on level 2 and was recommended Demons seats plus. No mention of them being sold out so I sent the Cheque off today.

a 8% increase on Nov 30, 2017. 

I wouldn't be surprised to see this rise substantially before Christmas - we have already exceeded last year's Christmas Eve total.

We are on the way to reach 50,000!

On a purely selfish basis that makes it way hard to get finals tickets etc. However good result for the club finances etc.

I've just tried to renew online. I'm an MCC member wanting to take up the MCC/MFC offer but I can't renew online. Anyone else having the same problem? (I will ring the club and renew, but my concern is with the inefficiency of the membership renewal system).

Gary Pert just said on SEN there are 22,000 MCC members who list MFC as their club but only 50% buy an MFC membership.

If Pert is even semi successful in that quest we will exceed 50,000!

It is around $800.00 for the combined MFC/MCC Full package so if Pert can lift those numbers significantly, he is doing some serious heavy lifting. 

Winning games early next year is paramount. Winning is the only way to get results. The rest is just cheap talk. 

The first 2 weeks of this years Finals  proved that. 

The passionate MFC Supporters ARE out there. They just want to see wins now. We have seen 3-4 lifetimes of losses. Enough.

Good post and something we haven't mentioned for a while.

Realistically though as more clubs make the mcg their home ground the percentage of MFC followers in the mcc will decrease.

Would also love to know the age demographic of the common group. If they are in the main under 40 it could be worth a concerted effort of some magnitude.

By the way does the MCC offer common memberships for Richmond and Collingwood etc

I just paid up today, went for the Reserved Seat open air to get the GFG and hopefully inspire myself to come down from Sydney for at least 5 games this year. However unless the mods have a problem, I’d be happy to offer my M15 seat to any other interstate members who want the better seat if they want to PM me (obviously if I’m not using it myself). Super pumped for this year

La Dee-vina, 

I just did my update this morning. 
You need to log into the MCC portal and pay through that. Click on renew my membership and as you've already paid for your MCC (I imagine) it will allow you to get either a MCC premium or just exclusive membership. That should work. 


Good luck & Go Dees

As far as i know it is only an MFC arrangement. The MCG is our home. 

The others have a spiritual home elsewhere, they rent...

And nothing says "common" more than a Richmond or Collingwood membership.

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.
