2022 Finals Tickets



Recommended Posts

80,000  sure , why not!

This is a big final not a H & A  game. 

Didnt we get 80k to our last swans final and that wasnt even a QF in 1987.

Admittedly alot of dees would of died off over the past 35 years. Not many youngies coming up to replace them.

I was speaking to the membership department a little earlier and I nearly fell off my chair when they told me what the club is expecting on Friday. I had to ask twice just in case I heard wrong, as of this morning according to ticket sales I was told they are expecting 84,000. I think we all hope it gets to that.

The club was hoping for 85-90 against Collingwood and that ended up being 70.

There are too many areas of the ground with large amounts of unsold seats for it to get to 84K imo.

AFL reserve will have 4K unsold seats on Level 4, Northern stand has 1.75K seats not on sale, Ponsford has 864 seats not sold and Southern has 1512 that havent been sold. That already gets us to over 8K empty areas. Then there are the MCC double dippers which will reduce the MCC capacity by 2K at least and standing room all up of about 5K not used. That gives me a max attendance of 83.5K and that assumes that everybody who has a ticket attends and corporate/medallion club allocations are all used up.

Of course there will be more sales which hopefully mean another 500+ tickets are sold.

I reckon it will be 75K which would still be an incredible crowd but will secretly be hoping for 80K+

I dont like the pc terms for someone who has died   ie.  passed away or.... there has been a passing in the family..

Passing where? Where are they going?

When you die you're  dead . Pure and simple.

Word salad wont change anything.

Mal that will teach you, that you need to be extraordinarily connected to get anything from our "masters"   You should have applied through your MFC membership, and not sit with the cheese platter and seat rug set,   get down and dirty sitting with us on M1   just near the Cheers squad.  I know you can remember that far back.    Maybe for the Preliminary seating  you should try it.   At least I will not get a nose bleed unless some swans supporter does not like my comments.   Cheers mate   

sorry to hear your so far up into the sky,  I will wave....

anticipating this game so much,  win this and we are going to be very hard to beat,  Come on Dees

There are 10 of us in our group BUT I also hold a footy club membership and maybe I should use that moving forward.

Can’t see why it won’t be over 80k in 2018 we got 91k against Geelong and from memory there wasn’t many Geelong supporters there, swans have a good following here as well as some will travel from Sydney so 80k plus seems doable

At least you get to sit closer to the action and not watching ants run around . But I only get two seats normally and if we make the GF definitely only the two.  So it’s a bit easier for the computer to put together two seats rather than your 10.

 

ps call you Friday evening and I will wave

Still shocked at those crowds. 90k two weeks in a row for an elim and semi is a fantastic achievement.

I wrote to the club about allowing 10 tickets per member which could be for non-members or even non demon fans.  It was supposed to be a 'Member PreSale.

Their response was:  All finals tickets are run by the AFL, all decisions regarding 10 additional tickets per barcode is also a decision made entirely by them. We urge you to contact them if you wish to take this complaint further.  I might do just that!

imv during the 'Members Presale' it should be one ticket per barcode.  Clearly the AFL don't care that non members and non dees fans can get tickets and even premium tickets.  Pretty ordinary seeing that we have kept paying memberships during covid without any football.

I've also concluded that selecting 'The Premium Member' option for barcodes doesn't allocate premium seats.  Not sure why they even have it.  Maybe it is to make people feel good ala saying we are in a queue for tickets but it turns out to be random.  It really is first in best dressed!  I wouldn't mind that if there wasn't the 10 ticket per member sale thing going on.

I'd love it to be over 80k.

But Covid, the ticketing system, weather and the fact that in 2018 we were playing finals for the first time in over a decade are all reasons why the crowd will most likely be less than expected.

It's a disgrace and I hope enough of us complain about it over this finals series so that next year it all reverts back.

    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.
