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))

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.

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
