That sure makes it confusing. 

I'm pretty sure this bit:  You will no longer need to redeem a ticket via Ticketek  refers to last year when covid rules applied to ticketing and venue access.

As far as I can tell, a barcode (ie on an electronic ticket from Ticketek or MFC app for members) is needed to get into the MCG.  No paper ticket or plastic member card entry will be allowed.

Edit:  Don't know what happens for 'tickets' sold at the gate or if walk-up are allowed. 

Crazy that they can’t put out a clear message. My understanding Is that GA members get a ticket/barcode sent to their phone via the MFC App

agree no paper/plastic can be used

all eligible members will be sent a barcode (reserved seat or not) to the mfc app 72 hours before each game

if those members without a reserved seat want a seat then they need to additionally go to ticketek - using the procedure luci outlined above

will be the same all year

(n.b. if you have a reserved seat membership then you don't need to go ticketek, and if not then you only need to go to ticketek as a member if you want to purchase a reserved seat at a mfc members price (i.e. select the right option as luci indicated))

I am a bit slow at times but this is a relief

if you go to the app now you will see all the tickets for this season, but without the barcode

for the next game it will also show a countdown clock for when the barcode can be expected

check it out

Just watched the latest training video with ANB on the mic. 
It’s obvious the blue team is the firsts and the red is the seconds. So from what I saw, Harmes was in red. JJ, Sparrow and Hunt all in blue. 
Both May and Salem featured prominently (in blue of course), so good sign they’re ready to go. 
Did not see Hibbo in the video. 

I saw this too.

It might have been that Harmes was in red for a period where they mixed things up, but then again I didn't see anyone else surprising in red.

Joel Smith was also in blue in that video, FWIW.

If you take the grand final 22 and bring two of Tomlinson, Smith and Hunt in for Petty and Rivers, I'm not sure who else comes in for Harmes (unless you count Jordon coming in from the sub position).

I can’t wait to be back at the G and cheering on the boys again. 
If you can make it, be there. Never take for granted being able to watch the boys live. It can be taken away quickly and we just don’t know what Covid sh!tfight awaits us next.

I plan on having an early start at the boozer and then getting to the ground early.

I'll admit to being a bit of a luddite but I am having bad feelings about this barcode/ phone entry arrangement. Especially given it's round one and a big crowd is expected.

There could be a monumental [censored] up waiting to happen

Loved it back in day when your membership card was punched at the gate by an old boy wearing a vest and a tweed jacket. Bring it back.

Those tall green turnstiles only skinny people could get through 

Clip the card for each round

For those with AFL Memberships there was an email earlier this week saying that the new ticketing system for AFL members where you sign in to the AFL app and scan the barcode at the gates to get in without a reserved seat will NOT be available for round 1 as they aren't sure the system is ready yet. Any AFL members attending round 1 MUST have a reserved seat and they gave us a barcode in the email to upgrade to a reserved seat for free (usually $9). You will be able to scan in to the AFL members area with the barcode on your phone from round 2 onwards.

Not sure what this means for club members or MCC members though.

Which boozer do you frequent pre game BBO?

Amazing... simply lost for words

This year, the AFL has changed the day on which the opening game of the season is played. Instead of starting with the traditional Richmond v Carlton fixture on a Thursday, the league has opted to instead play the grand final rematch between Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs next Wednesday night.

The game would have otherwise been played on a Saturday or Sunday. By moving it to Wednesday, the league has created a stand-alone game. A senior Sportsbet source told The Age and Herald their company alone stood to make an extra million dollars in round one because the match would stand clear of weekend events such as other AFL games, rival sports and horse racing.

Plane lands at 11am on Wednesday, straight to the accomodation and the very slow pub crawl will start from docklands into the MCG, 2 x Dee’s supporter and 2 x band wagon supporters from QLD coming down for the festivities!. Cannot wait for the game, scared how much merchandise I’ll buy before the game…….

I really really hope we get a great crowd. Just to witness the unfurling of the flag will give me goosebumps because we haven't been through it. I hope we are loud and when our premiership boys run out they hear the biggest cheer for them. I do not want to hear from media people or read oh melbourne supporters didn't show up. I'm sick of hearing that over the years. 

I reckon the members will be pretty full and be rocking and I hope we have a nice easy win.

Similar plans for us BD, arrive just after 1030 and stow the bags in the hotel. I then have to take Mrs Right Foot Snap for Yum Cha then we can hit some traditional pubs on the way to the ground. We also have to detour to the Rebel in the city as my big order from the demon shop a month ago isn't going to make it in time. Dworship suggested the Arbory which looks really good, but we are going to save that for lunch on thur or Friday.  Any pub suggestions with like minded people would be be welcomed. Second time going to the G and very excited.

 Brilliant mate, for multiple reasons over the years, this is the first time my old man and I will watch a game together at the MCG (marvel, Gabba, GC games).  Cannot wait

Yeah I’ll be going to that also, are you a golfer? Highly recommend the course, I’m playing St Andrews beach golf course on Friday.  Here’s hoping for 2-0 while we’re in attendance.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
