While Ticketek nominally assign Bays for the two clubs I don't think it is sophisticated enough to ensure the numbers are 50/50.  My impression last year was first in, best dressed.

Regarding the Ticketek 'premium' member option the computer didn't always deliver premium seats nor priority access.  The seat allocation seemed to be on price category rather than membership status.  Anyone could choose the highest priced tickets. 

Generally, the computer seemed to allocate tickets (by price category) in a Bay until it was full then allocated tickets in the next available Bay.  Sometimes there were Bays with fans from both clubs but you don't know this until you get to the game.

Once the MCC, AFL and other group's seats are considered the allocation for club members will be relatively small.

Hopefully the tickets for Carlton/Sydney go on sale on the Wednesday to avoid a total meltdown.   The other games' tickets will be sold by Ticketmaster.

@Fear the beard will probably know more.

 

I thought last year was premium members had a 2 hour window before other members to purchase their tickets?

I could of had that wrong though.

I think thta is right. Priority one members get first crack at tix is my understanding.

Priority one members are those with a GF guarantee:

Memberships with Grand Final Guarantee included:

  • Legends
  • Trident
  • Trident Open Air,
  • Redlegs,
  • Redlegs Open Air
  • Demon Seats Plus members

So technically we should be getting ours at 10am? 
I am getting on a plane in the afternoon and am responsible for 5 tickets. It’s very stressful.

But note, anyone dead keen to be priority memeber for the QF can buy an Access membership for $30. 

It's not clear what priority this gives you (maybe just the same as general memebers? ie so you have a chance at getting ticket as none will be available to non mmebers), but the info on the link below says:

Package Benefits

  • Priority access to purchase a ticket in weeks 1-3 of finals in which Melbourne participates
  • Priority 3 access to a Grand Final ticket if Melbourne participates
  • 10% off full priced purchases in-store and online at the Demon Shop
  • Club Voting Rights (if over 18)
  • Access to exclusive offers from club partners

Saints game also on Ticketek but for AFL reserve they are staggering the games, hopefully they do the same for Public and MCC. The premium option I am not 100% sure about.

Reading the package benefits for the $30 Access membership, it seems to be that all three levels of members (Priority 1, 2 and 3) all get priority access.

So perhaps Priority one doesn't get a first crack? ie when sales open, all members have priority access at the same time

Do we receive a different barcode for each game?

During Covid in 2021 we were encouraged to share our barcode’s which I did. If i attend next Thursday night and assuming we win I don’t go to the preliminary but plan on going to the GF, if I’ve shared my barcode to someone what’s to stop them trying to use it for GF tickets should we make it?

Yep, everyone at 10am tomorrow, however priority one members get exclusive access to purchase category one and two seating.

I think the barcode is the same for the whole year in season, but changes every year. The barcode you had in 2021 won't be valid.

I’m talking about this year. I’m planning on going next Thursday but not again until the GF should we make it. If I was to share my barcode for the preliminary they could then try and use it for the GF.

Does anyone have any idea how to get the barcode if you don’t receive the email? Is it on the ticketek account?

I haven’t received emails from the club since prior to 2018 

Make sure your account has ticked "to receive communications" from the Club. Sorry I don't know the exact wording but you may have decided not to receive emails in the past which would may stop you from receiving the most important email you will ever receive apart from " you have won lotto"🙂

Yeah definitely don't share the barcode then. I'd buy a ticket for someone else for the PF, avoiding the need to share the barcode number with anyone.

The MFC membership system is run through TicketMaster even though AFL Finals tickets are sold through Ticketek - Logging into your MFC account will list your barcodes - https://am.ticketmaster.com/melbournefc/membershipdetails

No. The barcodes change every year.

Hey thanks for getting back to me. I’ve tried a few times with no success, my wife forwards me her important emails from the club but obviously her email will contain her barcode.

I called the club and you can get the barcodes through the Ticketmaster members area only on a PC though. I did this earlier today. There is a link on the website in the finals FAQ section to access the account from for anyone else in the same predicament.

Priority access for these memberships simply means BEFORE NON MEMBERS.

iirc that 2 hour window was prior to tickets being sold to non-members or to the public.

Even that was a disaster last year as any member could purchase 10 tickets on one membership even though those people weren't members.

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
