    Maybe. If Melbourne were playing Richmond, Collingwood or Essendon they almost certainly wont get a ticket. I sat next to someone who works for the AFL at the Richmond Hawthorn final this year and he was pointing out that an ever increasing % of the AFL members section are given to corporates in every final.

    Hence why Gold has slowed up...gotta allow corporate dimes to fill the decreasing afl member gold vacuum

    Is there anyway to see your waitlist number online or do you have to wait for it in the mail or call them up?

    Years of membership: 8
    Waitlist: 8035

    That whole "it'll take seven to ten years for gold" seems a little off at this point.

    My conspiracy theory is that the AFL are "buying" out lapsed gold memberships and repurposing them for other needs.

    Yeah I certainly think they are reducing gold capacity for silver members looking to upgrade.

    Certainly some merit in that. The upgrade rate slowed noticeably after the AFL purchased Etihad too

    Don't forget that in the 3 year period 2014-2016 there was a much larger than normal number of gold upgrades, 6500, see my previous posts on this. This means in those years you moved much further up the waiting list than normal, maybe 1k spots more each year than expected, people seem to gloss over this point. Last 2 years you have moved much less than normal, maybe 1k spots less than expected each year. Maybe it's just cyclical?

    Also I thought gold was capped at 30k, but remember seeing some sort of official figures a couple of years back saying 31k current gold members, can't recall where I saw this. Maybe at some point they let an extra 1k in and are now in the process of clawing those back?
