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.

Fair enough Old Dee. My Dad died late last year, so this is my first season without him, and it has taken on a melancholy tone as a result. But I must say, I did feel perked up after a couple of beaut

@Bimbo! I read that...get back to work!

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.

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".

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.

    THE EYE OF THE STORM by Whispering Jack

    When Melbourne monstered Richmond a few weeks back on the MCG thereby registering their sixth win on the trot, the block of games to follow looked highly appealing. After a stirring victory in difficult conditions over the reigning premier, the games to come were against a quartet of low achievers from 2020. North were winless, the Swans were the early high flyers now falling into a slump, Carlton couldn’t take a trick and the Crows had just lost an unloseable game to the Hawks in Launceston. Ev

    DUCKING A PLUCKING by George On The Outer

    With seven consecutive wins for 2021 behind it, and not having played well in its previous game,  Melbourne was ripe for the picking (or plucking) by the Sydney Swans. However, in the end, it was the Ducks who found themselves plucked by a Demons side that continues its relentless successful roll for the Season. Or did the Demons narrowly duck a plucking themselves? Sydney brought its usual game style to the M.C.G.  Get in front and then shut down the game, scrap and refuse to mov

    THE MERRY, MERRY MONTH OF MAY by The Oracle

    The month of May was a little more than halfway into its second day when the news came. Melbourne was on top of the AFL table for the first time since Round 3, 2005. As usual with the Demons, there was no time for celebration. They had just lost tough nut Jack Viney with yet another soft spot in his foot, Adam Tomlinson’s year was in ruins with what was subsequently confirmed as an ACL and Bayley Fritsch’s careless but unintentional fend off on North’s Tom Powell was about to see him charge

    BLUNDSTONE BOOTED by George on the Outer

    The tough Aussie Blundstone boot is made for true blue collar workers, and so it was at this aptly named stadium in Hobart, that the Demons were made to work their hardest for their seventh consecutive win of the season. From the outset, North Melbourne put scoreboard pressure on Melbourne with two majors at an early stage in the first quarter. The Demons fought back and temporarily had the lead but the Kangaroos responded to lead by five points at quarter time. This was not what the public

    UNTROUBLED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were untroubled for the third week in a row as they went on a four quarter romp at Marvel Stadium to record a 107 point win over an undermanned bottom-of-the-ladder North Melbourne VFL. The scoring riot began about ten minutes into the game when Sam Weideman notched the first of four goals that could easily have been six or seven but for some uncharacteristic misses from close in. The Demon forward, spurned so far by the club’s AFL selectors, demonstrated a strong work rate

    I’LL GIVE THEE A WIND by Whispering Jack

    The football world was reminded this week about the last time Melbourne opened a season with six wins or more in a row. That was in 1965 when Sir Robert Gordon Menzies was Prime Minister of Australia and the country was fighting a war in faraway Vietnam. It was before Jack Viney’s father, Todd, was born — a time when the game was played almost exclusively on Saturdays and when Demon fans used to wake up in the morning mostly safe in the knowledge that there was not even the remotest possibility

    MAKING HISTORY by KC from Casey

    This was a weekend of history with Anzac Day commemorations throughout the community including the sporting world including the VFL. For the Casey Demons, which originated from the Springvale Football Club founded in 1903, it was a double celebration as Saturday’s game was a celebration of the club’s 750th VFA/VFL match since admission to the competition in 1982. Springvale became the Casey Scorpions in 2005 when the club moved to Casey Fields and since 2017 has been known as the Casey Demo

    THE TWO ELEPHANTS NOT IN THE ROOM by WJ

    After another slow start when they conceded 2.3.15 to nothing in a handball-happy opening 15 minutes, the unflappable Demons delivered a warning sign of major proportions to the rest of the competition with their 34-point win over the reigning premiers in their Anzac Eve contest. And what made things even more ominous is that they did it without two elephants in the room - key forwards Ben Brown and Sam Weideman who have been amassing goals at VFL level while coming back from injuries that

    A TALE OF TWO HEROES by Whispering Jack

    On Saturday night at the ANZAC Day Eve game between Melbourne and Richmond, we will give recognition to the achievements of two great Demons who made significant contributions to the Melbourne Football Club over substantially different time spans. The first is the late Frank V “Checker” Hughes who was born on 26 February 1894 and began his career as a Richmond player in 1915. Shortly after, Hughes was called on to serve his country when he went to war during WW1. He returned from battle and

    TURNING POINT by The Oracle

    It wasn’t that long ago when Melbourne held sway in its Anzac Eve matches against Richmond. The early versions of the blockbuster saw the Demons home by 32 points in 2015 and 33 in 2016. When the turning point came it was dramatic and sudden. The Demons might have been on an upward curve in 2017 under new coach Simon Goodwin but so were the Tigers who had finished a disappointing 13th in 2016. When the teams met in Round 5 under lights in front of a crowd of 85,657 — the highest ever betwee

    STARTING OVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons made a successful return to the playing field with a 51 point away from home victory over the Box Hill Hawks. The visitors were starting over after a hiatus of almost 20 months and fielded a strong team of 14 AFL listed players against an undermanned opponent. And they showed from the first bounce that they were out to make up for lost time with an aggressive opening that saw them off to 21 point lead at the first break with thanks to a dominant midfield and two key forward

    NUTCRACKER by George on the Outer

    Q: How to crack a tough nut? A: Use a bigger hammer! It took Melbourne until the last quarter to crack the Hawthorn nut. These days, the Hawks under Alastair Clarkson simply don’t have the talent that served them so well in years gone, and they have to rely on not losing rather than trying to win.   The result is that the match became a slog for three quarters, as Hawthorn clogged the game, flooded heavily and simply stopped the Melbourne run.  Even in the first quarter the signs
