2022 Finals Tickets



Recommended Posts

49 minutes ago, whatwhat say what said:

weather forecast tomorrow is 'partly sunny' with no rain forecast

still reckon if we pull more than 55k it will be an excellent result

Given we have 65k members. Plus thousands of MCC supporting non-members, how could one possibly think 55k at a semi final would be an excellent result?

Just my final thoughts on what crowd will be tomorrow.

34K on level 1, 8k on level 2, 3k on level 2a and 10k on level 4

55k is what that gets me which i still think may be overs but am hoping we get a little more 

So disappointing.

If I was a melb player running out of the race to a half empty G for a semi, I'd be slightly deflated.

Petracca was right all along.

Keep in mind 65,000 memberships does not mean 65,000 members let alone 65,000 adults who can readily get to games.

eg MCC members buy MFC memberships, members like me have 3 memberships.  Only one person turns up for these multiple memberships.

Then there are kids, elderly, i/state and country members who simply can't get to games. 

Take those out of the 65,000 memberships and I reckon the number of members able to attend games, even finals, is more like 50,000.

Not sure where you get your forecast from. Bureau of Meteorology has it down as:

 

Partly cloudy. High (70%) chance of showers, most likely in the afternoon and evening. The chance of a thunderstorm in the afternoon and evening. Winds northerly 20 to 30 km/h decreasing to 15 to 20 km/h in the late afternoon then becoming light in the late evening.

that is so weird, the bom is saying that but the other weather app on my pc says:

Is it tho? If there are 50,000 Melbourne fans there considering we are a small club I think that’s a good effort. Mcc will be full to the back and that’s what they run out to.

also an incredibly small uptake of tickets from brisbane members. 
 

i still think there is a small chance we may get to 60k.

Agreed LH. I went last week but am not going tomorrow due to kids sport and that by watching at home I get to enjoy it with the kids who are a bit young to regularly attend late games.  My household directly accounts for 6 of the 65,000 and I'm sure there are many others in the same situation. The positive with having alot of new members belonging to young families is that they are of the age to grow our membership base over the next generation.

Perhaps.

I get the feeling there'll be more Brissy supporters there than most are giving credit.

Fitzroy supporters, there'll still be a percentage of Brissy Lion MCC supporters and then you've got the Melb based ones plus thousands that will travel down.

Was just hoping for it to be a very raucous and loud pro Melb crowd.

Agree it is great to grow the membership.

I just find it a little frustrating that so many posters here are berating members for not turning up.

As I alluded to earlier memberships do not equal members.  I know an MCC member who has an MFC membership and buys an MFC GA membership.  Like me it is 3 memberships but only 1 person.  The other 4 'members' don't exist.

Hope you enjoy the night with the kids and the team brings home a win!

Well it doesn't matter whether it's members or just supporters.

Getting under 60k to a semi final for a side who have been in the wilderness for decades is a disappointment and I'm not sure that can be argued?

Brisbane were very loud in round 15. They had a lot of support there and they'll only have more given it's a final.

So if we do indeed get around the 55-60K range I'm going to guess that there'll be more than 10,000 Brissy supporters. More like 15,000.

We got about 35,000 to our Grand Final day at the G fcs! 

This is a semi final! What's going on!?

You just said it JG, that we have been in wilderness for decades. It takes more than one year to make a lot of people think we will not crumble when the pressure comes on. Just like it did last week. The MFC has a large number of older members that find it difficult going to a night game that gets them home after midnight.   Add that we are not great at playing the G and for a lot of people this game has us only going through the motions.

Poor form and the fact we have dropped games against good sides for weeks, suggests to fans that this is likely to be a loss and all over for 2022.

Are you assuming in your estimation that about 5-10% of people who bought tickets won't show?

I very nearly gave up my AFL membership the last two years. As a Gold tier member i am effectively guaranteed a ticket to the GF if Melbourne makes it... I think I'll hold onto the membership for a few more years at least :p

Just pray we don't play Collingwood in a GF or you might find yourself in row HH of level 4.

Just jumped on Ticketek to see how the game is selling  and The Swans now have a ballot up. Find it strange that Priority One have to go in a ballot, I took it that Grand Final Guarantee meant just that. Will we need to Register should we win this weekend. PS The Swans might not have a Grand Final Guarantee connected to Priority One Member. The cats had to do this yesterday. 

Sydney Swans Members Grand Final Ballot Registration

In the MFC email today about the GF ballot ... the word doc said it was 'one in all in' or 'one out all out'. Interesting, assume that means that any grouped barcodes are treated as one entry and then you either all get to go or no one gets to go. What about if there are only a few sets of 3 seats in a row left and your entry has 4 or more barcodes - I assume you miss out even if you are selected in a random approach.

I was reflecting on the many posts in this and other threads that draw on the 65,000 members as the reference point for their 'dees fans don't go to games' narrative.

 

Certainly < 60,000 is a disappointment.  But if we were playing Collingwood it would be 90,000+.  But then the narrative on here would be 'dees fans don't make enough noise'.

Yes, we as fans could do a lot better attending and noise at games but I find the constant dees fan criticism (not referring to yourself) uncomfortable. 

I don't care to repeat why I don't get to all games but if I don't go, there is a good reason.

If you have reasons that you believe are valid for not attending, you have no need to feel uncomfortable about the criticism?

But if you feel uncomfortable, you must be taking it personally? 

So I'm confused.

    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.
