2021 Melbourne Membership Packs



Recommended Posts

There was a time in the early 90s when we would receive a Christmas card signed by a player (in ink) as part of our membership and  I still have ones from Allen Jakovich, Rod Grinter and Stephen Tingay. 

These were then replaced by a card with printed autographs and one I have kept featured coach Neil Balme, Garry Lyon, Jimmy Stynes, Glenn Lovett and Tingay.

I assume the practice ceased for reasons of cost, but it was a nice gesture that I appreciated receiving each year.

My 18 year old daughter receiving the “adult” membership pack, for the first time, complained there was no pencil case and face paint!

I signed up for a digital membership, and I already regret it. Firstly I can already tell given the AFL is running the digital memberships that it is going to be a big dumpster fire, as apparently the

Australia Post must spend a fortune on storage and freight.  I would have thought it cheaper to deliver the mail rather than store and move it. I have posted a letter in the Mansfield post office addr

The HS website has an article on how AFL clubs are rewarding member loyalty.  Can someone who can get behind the paywall report what MFC is doing and how it compares to other clubs?  Thanks in advance.

btw, I didn't see or hear that there would be a 'reward' of some sort from mfc.  Some people here reported receiving a pin with membership packs but neither myself nor my niece received one in our 'Redlegs' packs.

I got a pin but it might vary by membership category? Port gave a keyring. Some clubs upgraded everyone by one category.

Here we go LH.

Membership prices frozen across all categories.

Complimentary general admission tickets offered to 2021 members renewing as compensation.

Membership packages with included hospitality offered complimentary function.

Reserved seat renewal period extended to ensure no member loses a seat.

htp://membership.melbournefc.com.au

That is all she wrote LH. As I probably wont be going to a game next season I get nil. However it does not worry me I paid last year and would this year  even if there was not season. Just a rusted on [censored].

I’m a Trident member. I received my badge, a lanyard and a couple of stickers 

No pin or any other “reward” offers

I contacted the club via email, and they said that you had to nominate whether you wanted a pin, and If i replied to the email, they would send me one. I replied and stated "yes please", I also explained that members who choose the roll over option don't get the opportunity to select such items or choose a picture for their membership, and suggested maybe they could fix this.

This is a good point. The first year they did custom cards I got a bit overexcited and paid $5 (!) for one, then the next year a blank card turned up when I would probably have paid them another fiver. Every dollar counts.

I think they tell you when you get the renewal email to login to your member account for those extras. I'm an AFL member with MFC club support but I've done it for my kids memberships (selected a player for the card as well as purchase the birthday club add-on).

I have not received anything yet but not worried I doubt I will be going to a game before July if there are games to go to. Funny thing is I am less enthusiastic about the coming year than of any in the last decade. Might be just my view of life in 2021 in general  at present.

I received a scarf before Christmas, that's it, just a scarf. No membership letter, no membership card with the personalised player I'd chosen, no lanyard, no stickers, no fridge magnet with the draw on it. Just a single scarf. Rang the club and they had no explanation.

Then asked if there was any kids AFLW memberships or merch as we've just had a daughter and I want her to be a member for both teams like me. No memberships or merch available, thought that was a missed opportunity

I think it was reported that there was a hiccup with MCC notifying the Club of MCC/MFC paid memberships until much later than usual. We haven't received ours but not concerned as a quick call to memberships will sort it out.

Australia Post lost my pack and then claimed they never received it from MFC.

It scanned at one of their locations in Dandenong South.

Useless.

Be Friday or Monday based on the gap between SMS and pack arriving for me.

Lapel pin as thanks for paying 2020 in full a bit of a joke. Hobart Hurricanes gave me a players shirt, and getting a training shirt with members names sublimated into from Parramatta.

We get a scarf each year Clint From Melb snd really Hobart Hurricanes we're not affected by Covid last year As their season was over and are not this year it would seem.

I paid for my overseas membership in October and soon after received the confirmation e-mail.  However - like every other year - I am locked out of the watchafl app. I have written to them to restore access, but haven’t had a response yet. The gift pack (is there one?) hasn’t arrived.
Last year they asked if I would like to forgo the gift in favour of a young supporter. I agreed and supplied my grandson’s name. But, for some silly reason, that isn’t part of the deal. They give the gift to someone of their choosing. Not a great way to bring the next génération into the Demon’s fold.

No, you're on your own there. I received my pack pre-Christmas, but I paid separately. Paid the MCC in October and the MFC in November, in case that makes a difference. (I prefer to give my money direct to the club.)

Sorry Redbeard understand you have had discussions with the Membership Dept.

Maybe ask if they can create a Junior category for AFLW Juniors.
Consider  writing or contacting Gary Pert.  Good luck.

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 19

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs.

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the
