All I know Luci is the info from an email the club sent a couple of weeks ago.

Great news, thanks. 

Very happy that seating in the Redlegs area is possible.  Not fussed about the actual seat, more the location:  good views and protected from the rain and wind.

I have told you before I will not be attending any public large crowd events until the majority of the population is vaccinated. That is 2021. For better or worse I have been a member almost all years since 1973 and a supporter since 1961. I figure I have been a very loyal member of a club that is not very easy to follow. IMO once a clubs numbers get too high the benefit to the individual reduces to the point you are no better off than a non member. What is that number? In my view  somewhere above 50k. Now you can keep dropping the glass half empty barb as long as you like but it will not change my view of when I want to belong to a sporting club. 

2022 for second doses I would say

I’m getting the AZ at work this week. Health setting, non clinical.

at the infection rate in Australia and yes even Victoria, old dee, your chances of catching COVID right now are actually incredibly thin.

For Europe and North America, vaccines are needed to flatten the curve, get things under control, reduce the death rate. It's literally a matter of life or death. They badly need to vaccinate.

Vaccines with Australia and much of Asia is mostly about establishing travel bubbles and simply enhancing protection in the region. It's less a matter of urgency and there is a reason why vaccines are so hard to come by in the southern hemisphere: we just aren't as desperate as a UK or Italy or even Israel surrounded by heavy hit Middle Eastern nations. For us it's almost a matter of convenience, to further enhance our protection and our health care workers. But for harder hit nations it's a matter of necessity.

My strong advice is to start living your life because there is every chance second dose majority won't be for another 12 months in Australia. See you at the G next week.

Most of that may be true Praha and like you I don't share the government's Rosie forecast on when the vaccinations will be  completed. However I am in kill zone and while there is any chance I am not taking it. TV for me in 2021.

Dr I don’t think any of the regular 30k+ members or people on here pay their membership because of the benefits of getting into games being their major reason. I have paid my membership year in year out no matter what. I have paid it when I was  unable to attend more than a few games. I paid it this year when I doubt I will go to a game this year. I don’t buy my membership on the basis of what I get. If that were the case I would have stopped paying 25 years ago. As my age mounts there will be a point where I  will lose interest. When the membership get regularly above 50k I figure I will not be needed any longer. 

You'll always be needed od, you're a red and blue diehard like the rest of us :lol:

That's disappointing.  You pay quite a premium for reserved seats and to lose that right is fairly ordinary. 

One would think the ticketing company could program it so that the reserved areas are kept for those members - not necessarily get your 'designated seat' for Home games but at least be in those area which are better located in many ways. 

Not sure I want to risk a seat in the rafters or exposed to the elements from a random computer allocation.

Read the latest email on membership bar code no's etc and also look at the reserved seat email and ring membership if you have any questions 

You are going to get the same reserved area but just not necessarily your reserved seat.

You can book up to 6 tickets ( individual bar codes required )To sit together  in your area. 
 

But ring the Club membership Dept for conformation.

I hate having to bag the club, but the system for renewing/upgrading memberships is crap. I've tried the phonelines several times over the past couple of weeks, but can't get through, so I've tried to upgrade my membership via the website, but it puts the wrong membership in the cart. Jesus Harry Christ, you'd think they were trying to beat us off with a ****ty stick!

 

I've now written an email, requesting a call back, but want to cc Gary Pert - does anybody know his email address at the club?

The clubs hands are partly tied on this matter as they, like all AFL clubs, have to use the TicketMaster membership platform rather than being able to build their own.

Fair enough, but still you would've thought they would have their phone system sorted? It just gives me the irrits that, despite the constant inconsistency and short-comings of the team each year, we're still trying to renew our support but they can't work out an effective system. Sounds a bit like the on-field team!

Get the rollover each year plan and in Sept/Oct the year prior your member  ship is Easily and efficiently renewed with texts and email plus the monthly payment plan I subscribe to.

That way there is no issues now When all Membership  staff ( assuming more than one left) are super busy also Ticketmaster as well. 

Only major issue is now the ticketing for each game which once done is same virtually every game.

Hi, I signed up last week and was told I'd be emailed by barcode yesterday. I didn't receive an email so called today on the main membership number. I read the horror stories on this page about not getting called back so decided to just stay on hold until I spoke to someone.

However after 40 minutes of hearing hold music there was new audio saying please leave a message - but then another message saying you are unable to leave a message as the mailbox is full. 

Any advice/other numbers I can call? If I don't get the barcode this afternoon I won't be able to sit with my friends who are booking seats later today when they become open.

Not sure if this will work but if you’re still stuck, go to the MFC site (mobile site) and click those little 3 lines on the top right then scroll down to tickets option. It then takes you to a page where you can click ‘ Your Barcode’ followed by My Melbourne Football Club account page. It asks for your email or create account. Might be able to access your barcode that way.

I’m unable to post a link to that page for some reason, hope the above makes sense.

Thanks, I've logged into that page but it's just blank in the barcode section and says contact club.

The issue is I have MCC as well and so paid the $220 to upgrade to dual Premium MCC/MelbFC membership so this year I can sit with friends who only have MFC membership (other years I could just walk from MCC to sit in general admin with friends but because of COVID you can't do that anymore). I should have just forked out the $239 for the Dees membership. I'll get the barcode eventually but it's just a pain they can't email it to me within 5 days, bit of a joke.

The LOBSTER EFFECT Ring the Melb FC phone no select admin  and ask If there  is any chance to be put through to Membership Because of the time constraints,etc.  It might just work !!! 

Good luck !!!

Ok I sent a cranky email (was going to cc Gary Pert guessing at his email address but I resisted) and it worked, as they just emailed me my barcode with an apology.

Good stuff. Now just need a good match on Saturday!

I’m good thanks 58er, was just putting my 2 cents in with Lobster’s issue..I had my fun with the membership department yesterday. Gave them a call for an enquiry, was on hold for a while due to ‘extremely’ high level of calls, eventually I took the call back option and within 20 minutes they called me back, problem was it was just a recorded message asking me to re-enter my phone number and when I did that the machine lady thanked me for contacting the club and hung up on me. 

It’s just a messy time unfortunately and I can understand people’s frustrations, just have a look at what we have to go through to get entry for a R1 home game.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
