TICKETING: GF vs Bulldogs


Redbeard
 Share


Recommended Posts

This year I paid extra on top of my membership for the grand final guarantee option to purchase a ticket. Obviously being a Victorian I won't be able to attend if it's in Perth.

Does anyone know if I'd still be able to purchase a ticket if the game is in Perth so then I can give it to my mate who lives in WA so they can go?

Not sure about MFC membership but if you transfer your AFL membership ticket to someone you’ll likely have your membership torn up or at the very least be downgraded from full to restricted.

I suspect the answer will be yes to your question given that the club will desperately want MFC supporters to attend the grand final this year when we make it.

I have booked a hotel in Perth to quarantine. Not sure of logistics beyond this, but as a MFC/MCC Premium Member I get a guaranteed GF Ticket. I  intend to use it.....  even if I am stuck in a hotel for one week or even two.  Who is joining me?

They the Club  don't make those rules and couldn't I suspect just change a ticket OR a GFGuarantee for transfer.

I have  GF Guarantee and havent given up yet on attending if WA Govt makes decisions on Qld border arrangements.

Well done on the commitment.

Was it hard to get the G2G pass? The below website says only those with special circumstances can get in to WA and then quarantine for 14 days. This is reference to medium risk states such as VIC.

Thought about it more than once lately. Its just seems a bridge too far.

I think WA will open the border to QLD once they go 28 days without community transmission.

I think you’re every chance.

At the moment you can at the very least do 14 days quarantine. VICs won’t even be afforded that luxury unless they have a special reason to enter the state.

I honestly don’t think you can even if you were willing to commit.

I could be wrong but it looks as though people from medium risk states such as VIC must receive special permission just to enter the state prior to their 14 days quarantine.

Victoria won’t be downgraded to low risk by 11 September.

.. Personally I've thankfully moved to the acceptance / glass-half-full phase pretty quickly that it's watching it on the tele from here on in for me (for reference, on the hotel price question, I'd had a look and saw you can get half-decent 2 week one bedroom Perth CBD hotel stays for $1500 or so). Go dees.

I think you're on the money BBP. Just a few too many hoops to jump through.

I’m in Sydney so I don’t think I’ll be going anywhere this side of Christmas. That aside, there’s absolutely no way I could afford a hotel for however long the quarantine period is, plus airfares for two to Perth.

Excellent question.

I would happily give my ticket to someone in Perth provided they sign a stat dec that they will cheer for the Dees and put thier excellent booing skills to use to our benefit.

On a side note I think that in lieu of making use of the Guaranteed Grand Final ticket the club should allow all holders of such tickets to get a photo with the premiership cup at some point.

But I'm getting ahead of myself ...

I live in Perth and if we make it will be at the game as I have gf guarantee. We had flights and accommodation booked for Melbourne but alas not this year. 

I will be cheering very loudly…extra loud for all of you who cannot be there. I’m also hoping that potentially the AFL opens it to MFC members who do not have gf guarantee so our two daughters can come along.

Go Dees! I’m feeling so proud today

Might it be easier to apply to get into SA stay there for 14 days then cross the border? (with all the Port fans)

They may not be as strict.

I think if its possible to give your grand final guarantee to somebody else then as many of these as possible should be given to people in Perth who are able to attend the game.

We need as many as Dees as humanly possible to attend.

(but im also getting ahead of myself)...

I agree - I've had the GFG for as long as I can remember, probably 15 years, including the Neeld years.  I hope if we do win the flag this year there is some sort of exclusive event for those us in that position.

Hmm, interesting. Have just checked. If I'm reading it right it doesn't look to be the case though. Seems you must be an "essential traveller" and while you can get an exception for this it's for things like urgent medical treatment and what not.

I don't see why the WA government can't allow some sort of FIFO arrangement for VIC based fans like the UK did for itallians in the euro 2020 final. Test before the game, negative, fly in shuttle to the ground fly out no contact with the public barring those in the stadium.

    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

    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.
