Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Im flying down for this one..how could I not?  But Im also a bit out of touch with how to get tickets at Marvel. The game will be heavily booked Im imagining. Anyone got any suggestions of how to get hold of them early?

I actually don't think it will be heavily booked.

Crowds are really down at Marvel this year.

Tickets at Marvel are on Ticketek. AFL members go on sale on Tuesday. Not sure about the general public.

Tickets at Docklands are actually on TICKETMASTER. MCG is Ticketek.

You'll be able to get a ticket just depends where you want to sit and how much you want to pay. I'd say GA tickets go on sale Wednesday after Members? Or is it Thursday?

Hi DL'ers hoping to get some help here on best way to get tickets for this Friday's game.

I am a GA Member Home and Away, but have about 8 non-member friends and we want to sit together. What's the best approach?

Do I just buy all the tickets in my one transaction? I've found ticketek very confusing this year so a bit lost. 

Is it right that we will have to wait until Wednesday to access tickets?

For a start it's Ticketmaster and not Ticketek. Tickets for away members go on sale at 10am Wed and GA sales at 1pm Wednesday. I don't think you'll be able to get all 10 tickets in one transaction unless you want to wait until 1pm and pay for the two you would get for free if you booked those tickets earlier in the day (10am). I doubt that you can 'mix and match' ie supply two barcodes for the freebies and then pay for 8.

It is highly likely, however, that Dees members and GA will be confined to level 4 (top deck). I was there for the Saints game (row X - 2nd from back) and the six of us were all able to move to the front row as there were heaps of empty seats. I doubt there'll be anywhere near capacity.
MCC members are not getting reciprocal rights at the Docklands this year for starters, meaning they have to pay a motza for reasonable seats. I reckon many won't bother.

Yes.... I hate the joint like everyone else.

This match is too tantalising not to go but, I don't want to be sitting next Dog supporters who continually bag and hate our players. It fires me right up and I get into trouble.

So... The question is. Where do the Melbourbe supporters congregate in the stands? 

I know the cheer squad but much prefer a view a little higher in the stands.

I would love some help in this regard when choosing my seats.

Regards,

Just do what I do, sit right slap bang in the middle of a nest of opposition teams supported and barrack hard. It’s brilliant when wining, can be a little awkward when loosing, and fun either way, like the good old days (I’m not as old as some on here, so talking 90s here) in bay 13. ?

Tough gig.
I do that but find I'm just as likely to exchange barbs with one of our own "supporters" who continually bag and hate our players.
Usually those who do it at the top of their lungs.

Same here. I also seem to end up surrounded by the most obnoxious opposition supporters.

Good news for all the Melbourne fans who hate Marvel stadium - $225M worth of new function rooms and a market area (whatever that is) will solve all our concerns. Luckily nothing will change re stadium access or viewing from the cheap seats, because we know those things are perfect already.

I absolutely hope this outbreak can be contained and does not spread and as disappointing as it is not to be able to go, if it means we can keep a lid on Covid then i'll accept it. That being the case, and thinking from a very selfish fan perspective, does the lack of a crowd benefit us? We didn't do too well in front of the Crows fans last weekend so i reckon there's some advantage.

If capacity is heavily reduced it’ll just be a Bulldog centric crowd which will not help us at all. I prefer no crowds than less crowds. I think no crowds make sense and as much as I want to go, I think it might help us. 
Thankfully it’s not our home game.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
