The early season fixture lends itself to some significant game day membership sign ups.

Dogs, Essendon and GWS all in the marquee night time slots.

Assuming  there are no restrictions rnd 1 will be chaotic . Crowd could be 90k plus for the flag unfurling . I think those members who buy general $140 ?Un reserved Membership on the first home game  will buy before hand. Why queue  for the membership while the ground is filling up . . Its not going to be a 35k crowd vs freo and you can get a seat easily.

Still haven't received a 2021 membership pack ordered late September.No response to my emails.

Hoping to see a 2021 members cap. Last one I got was the 2019 one, so I guess they don't do them every year. I'd sure like to get a 2021 cap though!!

It's madness, at this time of year we're all uptight...in a state of panic; how are we going to afford both a MFC membership and the G.I.Joe with the Kung Fu grip?

 

Action Jackson doll.

Currently at 40,823 according to the website (towards the bottom of the page)

https://membership.melbournefc.com.au/

Could be a large increase when the final payment of the MCC goes thru for those who have selected MCC/MFC memberships. Was told a year or so back that the last payment triggers numbers/payments to MFC. Someone may be able to confirm this.

40k is a good result for us so far but when you compare to the Pies and Bombers who hit this mark in early November and the Tigers who hit 80k in mid-Dec (😲) it shows how far we still have to go. Hopefully we see a big increase on the back of our flag and and sustained success early in 2022, 65k should be the minimum we are aiming for this year (on track considering we are about 10k ahead of this time last year and we ended up with around 55k).

We just need to win games consistently. 
no need to look at other Clubs Numbers. 
if we win consistently we shall become big once again

I know we'll end up having a pretty good tally this year but it's quite hard to comprehend that we're pretty much the same numbers as St Kilda who have largely been a disappointment since 2010.

Are they still doing the $1 membership signups though?

To be fair - we have been a disappointment for a lot longer…

I must admit I'm a tad disappointed that we're at 40k for memberships. Especially after premiership winning year, it's hard to fathom that we are on level with St Kilda and Fremantle.

Agree but we seem to have a lot of members who like to sign up at the first game/just prior to the season. I assume the MCC/MFC members are already counted in the tally?

It's hard to fathom that posters think it's hard to fathom that we have similar membership numbers to teams like St Kilda. Really, I don't know how people think sometimes. It's as if they've already forgotten how bad we were and for how long. 

From 2006-17 we didn't once play finals and many of those years we were bottom 5 with a couple of wooden spoons and several false dawns. 

We made a prelim in 2018 and then undid all that good work by finishing second last the following year. 

Two seasons later and we've won our first flag in 57 years. 

It takes a decade of competitive football, unearthing stars and playing regular September footy to build a  strong membership base.

Why is it a suprise?

The MFC has been a consistent disappointment between 1965-2020

That is a lifetime for many people, we need to show consistency now. Fend off challengers and keep winning.

As mentioned above , you wont get  another 30k members off 1 flag .  Alot of supporters may become members . But continued success will only attract new supporters. Those supporters arent  going to be from another club . They will be kids of families of melbourne supporters /members see us win. How many melbourne fans have we lost in last 57 years because  of our lack of premierships . Near enough is not good enough.

Membership $ is what counts most - all clubs have quirks that can inflate numbers. The Saints were handing out free memberships to all kids who joined a certain junior league and sold a heap of $1 membership one year, I think the Pies and Tigers have a large pet membership number. The key is the membership $ return, which from memory - I can't find but haven't looked very hard! - we had a much higher $ return from every member than most other clubs. So 40,000 members for us is significantly better than 40,000 for other clubs.

No that wasn't my expectations at all. 

I thought at least starting point was 46k perhaps.

Does anyone know what we were this time last year?

I think we're about 10k ahead of where we usually are at this stage so tracking well for 65k

Well I suppose that puts things in a much better perspective.

    NO CONFUSION by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took more than half a game to crack Port Melbourne at Casey Fields on Saturday but when they finally did so, they were merciless and in the end, they took no prisoners.   What made Casey’s 58-point victory win so remarkable was the fact that even after late call ups to the Melbourne team that traveled to Adelaide deprived them of key players from their goal to goal line, the less experienced replacements all made meaningful contributions to the side’s overall performance as

    DOZEN FOR THE DEES by George On The Outer

    Melbourne stormed to its twelfth win for the 2022 season after finally putting the Crows away in the final quarter of their clash at Adelaide Oval. The 29-point victory was by no means an easy one for the Demons who went into the game without a recognised ruck and a forward line with a solitary tall. With a patched-up structure of Sam Weideman and Mitch Brown in the ruck, it was not surprising to see Adelaide dominate these contests.   However, despite 48 hitouts alone to Adelaide’s Reilly

    REMINDERS by Mel Rundle

    For those of us who were at the Adelaide Oval to watch Melbourne’s first defeat for the year on that fateful evening in May of last year, the moment at which the final siren blared is still seared into our collective memory. A victory stolen away by a combination of factors including our own hubris, a frenzied crowd that seemed to control the minds of the umpires, some dreadful kicking for goal and a touch of plain bad luck. Perhaps it might have been the team’s training regimen that provid

    TURNING ON THE HEAT by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed north to taste some Queensland sunshine and despite having to leave out skipper Mitch White who was stricken with the flu, they had little trouble in turning on the heat and disposing of finals contender Gold Coast. The Demons were dominant from the very start with exciting young key forward Jacob Van Rooyen on fire early and Mitch Brown destroying the Suns with his marking and leading despite his erratic kicking for goal. By the time newcomer Ryan Valentine goaled w

    JUNGLE KINGS by George On The Outer

    The top of the table Brisbane Lions came into their game against Melbourne thinking they were kings of the AFL Jungle. However, by game’s end they were shown to be toothless, as the rampant Demons gave them a lesson about the exact level you have to be at to justify that mantle.  The first quarter saw Brisbane squander some easy chances in front of goal, which kept Melbourne within striking distance and, as a result, the Lions led by a mere goal. Of course, it could have been so much d

    A STEP FORWARD? by The Oracle

    The winds of change have blown through the Melbourne Football Club over the past month or so as the team previously known for applying relentless pressure on opponents dramatically fell from its pedestal to a low not seen for some three years. This is a team that had the luxury of going through last season with one of the healthiest lists in the competition. And that health was not only reflected in a weekly injury list that revealed very few key players missing, but importantly, even fewer

    HUMBLE PIE by George on the Outer

    Seventeen wins in a row followed by a trio of losses.  The invincible Demon juggernaut was simply humbled by the Pies in that third loss, as once again they gave up an early three goal plus lead, to be over-run in the end. Is it loading? Perhaps. Is it the loss of players? Perhaps More likely, they are a combination of the two. Certainly, we have seen the side take an early lead in all of these games only to fade as reflected on the scoreboard where Melbourne has been outscored 25

    EARLY FREEZE by KC from Casey

    If the publicity ahead of Queens Birthday Monday was all about the Big Freeze and the game to follow the pre-game entertainment then the hardy group that braved the country’s cold snap to travel out to the windy plains beyond Cranbourne were given an early taste of what was to come in the Casey's big 52-point win over Collingwood VFL. The day started well with the Demons comprehensively beating the VFLW Magpies in the curtain-raiser elimination final and then their male counterparts donned

    THE CURSE by Norm Smith’s Ghost

    Melbourne’s fortunes took a dramatic turn for the worst on the day the Anthony Albanese was elected as Prime Minister. Since that fateful day, Steven May pinged his hamstring early in the match against the Dockers, Harry Petty came off the ground in consecutive games feeling the worse for wear, it was revealed that Tom McDonald’s foot was in messy shape, the Herald Sun exclusively reported that two years ago, Demon committee members exchanged emails critical of the team after it lost a game by 5

    BANGED UP by George On The Outer

    Melbourne v Sydney. City v City. Two top eight sides fighting for finals spots.  Sydney having beaten the Demons in ten of their last twelve encounters.    In what would turn out to be one of the most hotly contested games for the club in 2022, the physical damage to players was probably the deciding factor in the end.   Once again, Melbourne lost Tom McDonald pre-game to a yet unspecified foot injury.  More importantly was how much his work up the ground and bullocking influ

    TEN by KC from Casey

    The slippery surface of the MCG was a minor detail for the Casey Demons as they waltzed away from the Sydney Swans to record their tenth win on end in their Saturday afternoon curtain raiser. The Demons conceded the first goal of the game before recording the next three (two to Sam Weideman) to hold a 16 point lead at the first break before the Swans pegged that back to a mere three points at half time. Casey dominated the third term with four goals to nil and thereafter the Swans’ resistan

    THE COMEBACK by Whispering Jack

    How will Melbourne react to losing a game after such a long time since tasting defeat? That question is on everybody’s lips after the complete collapse of the team in the second half against Fremantle last week. When Bayley Fritsch missed his shot at goal 23 minutes into the second term, the Demons were 30 points ahead but from that point onward they were comprehensively overwhelmed as their structures fell apart all over the park. Unlike what occurred on a number of occasions during their
