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.

I needed an extra ticket for Saturday and purchased a membership today to do so. I went into the "contact us" button on the membership website (under more tab) and then added info into  "request a call back" outlining I needed the barcode. Got the barcode emailed to me 20 minutes later. I'd say try that, I was surprised and impressed having read your post.

That's not the worst of it. I am a signed up member. I logged on the the ticketek App and presented the Barcode which MFC gave me and tried to get 1 Ticket and the site wanted to charge me 40 bucks plus for a ticket. NOT HAPPY!! INFACT SNARLY!!

that was because you selected a seat that is an upgrade to your membership. it's not very clear that's for sure if you're not familiar with ticketek

I used three member barcodes to get tickets and could not find any tickets that were no cost unless they were for 1 year olds to 5 year olds.

Can some one please advise what to click on to get entry to the ground with MFC membership, without paying more ...

After entering barcode - select/scroll down right hand side and select General Reserved (second option from bottom)

I know we all want to go and we’re all very special but as others have said I expect the footy clubs member depts have been cut back due to covid. I see it as a massive positive that the lines are busy, please try and be gentle with them/the club, it’s tough times still. Having worked in call centres many monks ago it is a thankless task for not much money.

Stick fat and keep trying, it’s not personal. 
 

ps the booking system run by those money grubbing merchants is a different story, it is so hard to work out/less than intuitive.

Thanks Daisy my Daughter finally nutted it out to me and secured a ticket?

But shouldn't be so hard to work the system?

Hmm, I'm unable to reserve a ticket. I've tried both General Reserved and Best Available. I was under the assumption tickets were guaranteed?

  • There aren’t enough tickets to meet your request right now. Please try Best Available with a reduced quantity of tickets. If you receive this message even when selecting only one ticket, all remaining tickets are being transacted by other customers.

Got through - just needed multiple attempts.

l got tixs today in mcc after 5pm for 2 junior mfc members and l as a provisional new mcc member. have also got a mcc/mfc membership. my learning today is that the booking system works very well but could do with some better explanations and more detailed scenario based how to videos ... next booking will be a breeze for us all now that we have got the hang of it ... ps mfc membership staff are great and super knowledgeable but need more hands on deck to help in key moments ... 30 min plus wait time is common at the moment

I can't tell if it's the system, or people just don't know what they're doing.

I was in and out in 3 minutes. No problems. No booking fee. Tickets received. And this was for the AFL members when Richmond and Collingwood would have been scrambling for seats.

It’s one of the benefits being afl club support Praha. If we ever do make it to another GF, we’re pretty much guaranteed a seat due to there being so few MFC club support members.

Sorry if its been mentioned somewhere else, but what is this about? 

Seems to be a link to a free 3 game membership for us. Any Idea why the club is sending these out (on ozbargin website)I have removed the link, but anyone can head and look, or I can PM it (I have gone to the site and had a look, a collingwood mate sent it to me, so that was a fun text exchange :/) The link is to mfcde.es so the domian looks correct.

 

"Just got an SMS from the Melbourne Demons inviting me to take up a free 3-game membership. I believe it can be used for home games at the MCG (possibly not for sellout games but uh… will any be selling out?)

The text message was targeted but it looks like anyone can submit the form at (Link Redacted)

Paying it forward because I got my original free membership after seeing it on OzB!"

I had the same thing Picket. By 5.45 all of the GA tickets were gone. I'm at two kinds with this, on one hand I'm annoyed that I have to pay around $75 for a couple of tickets, but on the other hand appreciate that MCG capacity is limited to 50%, it's round one, we haven't had footy in Melbourne for more than 18 months, and that our club league isn't awash with cash but either are alot of our supporters.

I would hope that the cost does not make it unaffordable for our members and it would be good if the club is able to facilitate access to round one to those who couldn't otherwise afford to go.

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.

Good enjoy our Round  1 win !!! DZ

I received the text directly from the club from the same account that sends my monthly billing reminders and other information.

I have a couple of reasons for thinking it was legitimate, but if it was an open site it is likely that it has been abused by all and sundry. If so, then this was an appallingly managed promotion that once again sheds doubt on the ability of the club to properly process even simple tasks.

I can't wait until Anzac Eve or Queens Birthday and we can't get into the games because the club has given away a bunch of free MFC memberships to Richmond and Collingwood supporters.

The site is now saying "This exclusive Community offer has closed. Please contact the club directly if you have any queries".

I have to get a ticket to get into the MCC Reserve 

what a disgrace!!!

Why is it a disgrace? Have you been under rock for 12 months?  Life has changed and I having to get a ticket to the MCC reserve is surely not that hard.

    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
