The only thing standing in Port supporters way is the $1200 (currently) airplane tickets plus.

Have the GFG but flights from Hobart to Perth are currently $1600 return. 

(!) I bought mine for a $108 each way from Cairns with Jetstar a couple of days ago - which I'm assuming is the longest domestic leg in Australia. Looks like I might struggle to get a gf ticket now though - but definitely don't cry for me, just making a point about airline extortion. Maybe Adelaide/Hobart to Cairns to Perth would be a cheaper option, however insane that sounds. Anyways, happy to discuss putting anyone up on the way through if that's the case. Go Dees!

They stopped selling memberships with a Grand Final guarantee on 20th August...

Just in case anyone sees this post and takes it as gospel - A few mates have passed on you CAN call up and buy a membership with a GFG until 5pm today. Must have been revised given COVID and the chance to make up a little money lost during the year.

Had a look and can fly Hobart-Cairns-Perth-Cairns-Hobart for around $1000, with some accommodation on top of that. Still keen to go.

EDIT: actually that would require quarantine unless the Qld status changes to very low risk.

Just found Qantas direct Hobart to Perth return for just over $850. Not booking yet as do not want to tempt fate.

No state in Australia will have Victorians at the moment without an exemption, and no state is giving our exemptions for desperate footy fans. So unless you can swing a work or compassionate exemption, good bloody luck to you!

Maybe they’ve calculated roughly how many may need to be refunded to members who are are not allowed to enter WA, and are now selling a few in an effort to recoup their anticipated losses.

I tried today but they said they weren’t selling them. They said as a priority 2 I’ll have a very good chance of getting a ticket but who knows. I’m in the NT so no travel restrictions, just need to win the prelim!

I understand if you spend 14 days in SA and wish to go to WA you must apply to WA three days before for entry date. But getting into SA is the catch. Victorian's are basically refused entry now but other states eg Qld  are ok for straight forward entry by permit to SA. And flights back from WA toQld are open as well.

Check each states Covid travel restrictions and entry and permit plus QR code arrangements prior to applying so you understand each states arrangements. 
I have found contacting and speaking face to face over the phone is easiest and you can double check with any questions. Ringing in non  peak times is advised to save waiting times.

I have also checked my Grand Final Guarantee which is a No1 priority and is guaranteed. Category Priorities Nos  2,3 and 4 may be subject to a ballot. If in doubt call our Membership Department  who don't have a lot of info but have advised twice of info in this paragraph. Just also check that they have you marked which Category. You are then advised of your opportunity to purchase your ticket if you are eligible.

I doubt you'd able to get into SA unless you have an exceptional reason.

The cases are getting out of control in VIC.

Apparently on sunrise this morning they said people from WA are buying Melbourne memberships with a guaranteed GF ticket. I upgraded my interstate membership to a GFG and had no issues. The lady on the phone said a lot of people were doing it. 
That’s great for the club. Hopefully we can make some money back from some of the lost home games earlier in the year.

Hopefully it will inspire an inkling of temporary loyalty for the grand final, should we make it. Any mention if WA residents are buying up other team's memberships in the same manner?

The 2021 Access Membership package, is this considered a priority 2 level membership?

The whole memberhship site is awful for information. The contact US page literally link back to itself.

Ring the MFC Membership Ph no and ask. During Office hours. You may have to wait a bit or sometimes it's quite quick. 
 

Good luck

PS It might pay to read my previous post earlier on this page 4. Before you ring.

please help me fellow Landers.

I am a premium MFC member.

I am a full MCC member.

I am in Perth!

MCC is going to announce its reciprocal arrangement, if any, with  the AFL and Perth Stadium - but we don't know when the announcement will be made, for the Prelim and GF.

Do I buy my Prelim ticket this Monday on my MFC ticket or wait for the MCC arrangement (both will cost $s to buy a seat but I don't know if the MCC will be seated near the MFC members - I want to be in Demon Hell-land - suppose I've answered my own Q!)

But anyone know when MCC will make announcement?

thanks

Apply for a work related exemption if you can swing it.

Vics NSW and ACT are not likely to get SA access unless it's very "essential " but other states are treated fine generally.

    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.
