If 66,484 at the end of last year is the comparable number - you will need to change the thread to Products Tally....

At end of July 2022 we had 59,700 individual members. Happy for you and the Club to keep using the higher number (because the other Clubs probably do the same). Just the thread name isn't correct.....

WTF are you talking about??

If i buy 6 memberships and pay for them it is 6 Memberships. 
 

Are you a Hawthorn Member?

No. But if i did, it is still 6 legitimate Memberships 

Money in the Bank….

Maybe an example would help. A rusted-on generous Demon buys or renews 4 Redlegs or Trident memberships for the family. The same member joins the President's Club for a year and takes out a player sponsorship. My understanding is that the Club (or more specifically the AFL as it all runs through Ticketmaster) will then count that as 6 'memberships' or 'products', even though there are only 4 humans involved.

Great for the Club - good money - and I suspect the same for all Clubs. If the system stays unchanged the larger membership number published by the Clubs and the AFL will always run ahead of the actual number of members by, in our case, over 10% (the difference between 66,484 and 59,700. That's just the way it is - no drama I guess?

Let's see what numbers George is able to gather this year.......

I know the example is hypothetical but the number of 'additional' memberships from that source(s) are so few that the impact on membership numbers is negligible.

@Its Time for Anotherdo you still have the contact in 'Memberships' at the club to obtain the latest figure - it seems they have forgotten to update it to this year.

 

ps Really like your name change.  Agree: Its Time for Another!!

From the MFC itself:

'There are approximately 59,700 MFC members (this differs from the number of
66,484 published on the AFL website due to several individuals holding multiple
memberships)'

I have 17 children, four wives and 2 Cats who all have MFC memberships... So is that one membership as counted by the MFC ?

Hi Luci I just rang the membership number. No specific contact. They were always happy to give me the current number. 
it took 13 years on here for my originall name It's Time to become redundant. I'm still basking in that glory. But it's nice to think about another. Although my wife wants to go O/S next Sept the only time she'll be free so I could still miss actually seeing one.

Members vs Memberships numbers was covered in this thread

 

 

I don't see much point repeating the discussion here.

So what if the actual member numbers differ from memberships? As SWYL stated, the Club (in fact all Clubs) benefits from the number of memberships sold. As all clubs are measured this way, I don’t see the issue, and cannot understand why you are making such a big deal about it.

So what, your examples would apply to all clubs, just trying to stir up more garbage.

You haven't followed the entire thread sir.

Great for the Club - good money - and I suspect the same for all Clubswas my earlier post.

Just looking for the truth (for us, the AFL and all Clubs) - I am sure George will get that from the Club eventually....

    NEW CHAPTER by Meggs

    There was no setting sun to ruin the spectacle this week, just the rising moon over the brand-new empty GMHBA Stadium in Moorabool Street. It was a perfect evening for footy on a pristine surface with an enthusiastic crowd building.    Children dressed in Demon colours formed a Guard of Honour as the reigning premiers ran through the raised Demon banner declaring: MELBOURNE & GEELONG, A NEW CHAPTER IN THE OLDEST RIVALRY.     The strong travelling group of Demons

    BATTLE OF MORDOR by Meggs

    Shadows form over Middle-Earth as the two oldest football clubs in the land Melbourne and Geelong take battle for the very first time for 4-points, down at Kardinia Park (aka Mordor). If you dare, come venture down the highway and support our talented team. Melbourne’s Season Eight form line is 4 zip and we’ve been playing some scintillating footy.  The fanbase is growing.   It needs to be said that our opponents so far have hardly been top shelf: Collingwood sits 12th on the

    SISTER ACT by Meggs

    In the twilight at Frankston Oval, for the first ever match between Melbourne and Hawthorn, the Demons were clinical winning by 59 points and remain undefeated in Season Eight.   The Melbourne team ran out to a wonderful #DeeArmy banner paying tribute to Ron Barassi, ‘a football legend, the greatest Demon’.     So true!   Meggs was super excited to see Irish recruit Aimee Mackin playing her first game.  Aimee quickly showed us that she belongs out there with composure, ga

    ON SONG by Meggs

    Meggs asks is it time to heave ho the melodies and words of yesteryear and update Club theme songs with some Australian composers and singers?     What prompted this reflection was the discovery that this week’s combatants’ themes were written by the same early 20th century American composer, George M. Cohan.     Cohan’s melodies The Yankee Doodle Boy and You’re a Grand Old Flag have been used by Hawthorn since 1956 and Melbourne since 1912.   Even earlier, the clu

    RUN UNBEATEN by Meggs

    The Demons withstood a spirited challenge from the Western Bulldogs in the 10th anniversary of the Hampson-Hardeman Cup to run away with it in the last quarter and take their unbeaten run to 12 wins on the trot, an AFLW record.   The Doggies were tenacious and their losing score of 6.5.41 was the highest score against Melbourne since their last loss against Brisbane in Round 4 on 18 September 2022.   With the sad passing of AFL football legend Ronald Dale Barassi, champion player

    LEARNINGS OR BURNINGS by GOTO

    Well, the 2023 season is over for the Demons after a two point loss to the Blues in the First Semi Final. All season WE have been hearing about the “learnings” that the team needed to make after each loss, but how much have we actually learnt when they:   1. Lost four successive finals at our own home ground;   2. Fell in five of their last six losses despite having more shots at goal and in the sixth, they had an equal number of shots;   3. Lost seven games by under two
