Can anybody tell me which bays are general admission, it's not on the MCG website

Will not be many

home games I usually sit behind the goals western end. For pies matches this is all taken by cwood as reserved seating.

I can get a seat up in the clouds top deck and it’s our home game GMTS’s

We were spoiled with home games in the first half of the season but it's been a while since our last one and we only have two more games at the 'G and then the next time we go will be The Finals 2022. I think the weather, scheduling, cost & inconvenience, will all be dulled by The Occaison.

This is it; we're in the endgame now. We need to build momentum and hit the finals running. We need to put fear back in the opposition. Get behind the boys. Cheer them on. Lift them up. Go Dees

It’ll be up on Thursday on their website 

but it’ll roughly be this and only level 4:

Q49-Q55 rows T-MM

Q8-Q15 Rows O-DD

Q1-Q7 All rows

Q31-Q36 rows AA-MM

If we get 75k+ for both the Carlton and Collingwood games we will get our highest average home attendance ever, despite Anzac eve and QB big freeze both being away games.
The narrative that Melbourne fans haven’t turned up this year is a myth, we haven’t had the huge upturn in crowds many have hoped for, partly due to COVID, but it has still been one of our best years ever. Even if we only get 40-50k for the next two games, it will still be in our top 4 best attendances ever! Hardly a disaster.

Exactly, if you can go to games like this and don't I don't know why you bother following at all.

There is no chance it will come close to 90.

Crap weather, Covid back it will max out at 75.

I'd love it to be like Anzac Eve in 2017 when it was a shock to get 85.5K.

We just don't have that many supporters. Ticket sales indicated 70K.

Friday nights have also drawn really poorly this year. 

I’m just so surprised, if I was living and working in Melbourne CBD you’d totally walk/tram down after work with the lads and get into it!

Despite the fact that it’s our home game, the Pies will no doubt have the bigger crowd… it’s no coincidence that stock levels at Cash Converter stores throughout Melbourne, have been steadily increasing this week.

I'm in Adelaide right now (over from Perth) and my flight home tomorrow was just cancelled.

I'm wondering if it's a sign I should just pop over to Melbourne for the game instead 😂

Yes! Defs pop! Pop on over here! 😁❤️💙

I agree but considering how many people are working from home there aren’t that many people that will just pop across from the city.

for me I’m leaving the office at 5 on the dot to start the pre game experience. Not sure I’ll be upright come 7:50….

Its just what I’ve been told from people I believe.

Well I wouldn't believe them. 

80,000 would be a huge result. 90,000 with Covid still kicking, limited parking and the fact that it's our home game is a pipe dream.

I like the "Friday weather forecast... FIRE- moderate chance   .... really?  At the game?   NWind is interesting. unusual for August. that means there could be a strong advantage kicking to the punt rd end first.Might get a little drizzle. I'd definitely be going if in town.

Why wont filth supporters turn up on account of it being a Melb home game?  So what!  They had theirs on Queen Lizzy Birthday . Theyre 10-0. ffs What else are they going to do. Can you visit relatives and mates at Barwon Prison on Friday night?  I doubt it.

Only problem is late start at almost 8pm. Half the crowd will have drunk a skin full  waiting for the  bounce.   There will definitely be fights during and  especially after the game if pies lose. I wouldnt be taking any  kids. Men only night or maybe a few Frankston girls with tatts.

Gil Mc Lachlan is a clown.

You only get 80k these days if the game is one for which attendance is pre-planned. The classic example is the Anzac day clash which for competing supporters is often a must book early game (FOMO).

There's simply not enough time in one week to "build the book".

Anything near 70k would be a great result

I’m coming back to Australia for the first time in 4 years . Last melb game I went to was the semi final win over the hawks. What’s the weather forecast like Friday? Tempted to go see the pies game. I’ve got a seat in the MCC for the blues but this week could be a cracker 

Fantastic, Flaps.  I would love to be there, but won’t arrive until August 21st. Haven’t seen the family or the Demons for three years. (Mine was 2019, round 1 versus Port Adelaide, which was definitely a day to forget.) I’m hoping to attend all of our finals games. Go Demons!

I am happy you are blessed with a body that is capable Dr. I am still passionate and pay my membership as  I have for most of the last 50 years. Does my inability to attend these night games when I will end up in level 4 which I cannot get to make me now redundant. I will have managed 3 games live this year. So on the basis of your comment I should not pay my membership for season 2023?

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
