We might still be a sneaky chance to reach 70,000 Melbourne Football Club members?

But I think it is more a realistic objective for next year.

 

Nevertheless, gotta keep winning Premierships for our membership numbers to continue to grow.

Omg. I love that gif... I've just watched it over and over again for about a minute. 🤣

Waiting for the announcement of $5 one game "memberships" to get us to our 75,000 target. 

Yep, and the St Kilda offer pretty much prove the point, membership numbers (for all clubs) at the end of the day mean diddly squat.

Surprised they don’t offer steak knives as an incentive.

The only real number that counts (most certainly for the players) is how many of their supporters turn up on game day and how loud they are.  

Putting a positive spin on it, we are doing okay but I’m hoping we will end up doing a lot better. Couple of BIG away games coming up (Richmond/ Carlton).  I hope we, the supporters do the team proud.

Membership numbers in isolation mean nothing but one member = one additional person on the mailing list. Mailing lists holistically are worth A LOT especially to sponsors. Sponsors don't care whether they are $1 or $1000 members. You sign up, they have your details. 

Collingwood goes to a company and says "We have 100,000 people ready to be emailed, SMS'd and called to talk about your brand, from us. How about it?" It's 30k more than Melbourne.

Sponsorship these days to the every day joe is just a number but from a business perspective it's getting people in so the club can say "We have this many people willing to spend money with us." It represents purchase intent.

We have a good engagement level of membership to attendance but overall in terms of money coming in *beyond* membership, it makes a difference.

I believe their tagline is “you’ve given your personal details to Facebook for free! So give us a dollar and give them to us you walking gmail account!”

 

And once again, membership numbers are a waste of time as a measurement of whatever it is you think it measures.

Today is the "cut off day" for Melbourne Demons memberships I think?

I encourage those who haven't signed up yet to do so. A great Birthday or Christmas present is a Melbourne Demons membership.

Nevertheless, I understand the detrimental effects of the rise in the cost of living and how expensive memberships are.

Fingers crossed we get "close" to 70,000 members? Sadly, I think that tally is just beyond us, for the time being.

However, I will reiterate that we need to continue to win MORE Premierships if we ever want to compete with the BIG 4 or 5 Victorian AFL Clubs in Richmond, Collingwood, Essendon, Carlton and Hawthorn.

Striving to achieve our objective of 75,000+ members is still a lofty goal set in the MFC Strategic Plan. But it is possible! We just need to keep winning Premierships!

it's just the cutoff date for afl reporting purposes

we will keep selling memberships up until gf day, so the count still continues

making finals will ensure more memberships so people can get higher priorities on tickets and bring along more friends, relatives etc.

You need to commit to buying a 2024 membership to get access to the $1 memberships. I've seen plenty of worse ploys from other clubs.

there is an outside chance they could get to 70k this year

from the end of july cutoff date to the final count, last year they added about 1.5k\

bit of finals success, bit of push and shove, who knows?

70k sounds soooo much better than 68k

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
