It's already been diluted considering it's been close to impossible to get a ticket unless your team is playing for a number of years let alone booking a number of tickets in a group.The GF guarantee for gold is pretty much everything. If they ever lose that because of too many corporates, its over.
Even the GF is no guarantee - it is "subject to capacity", whatever the AFL deem that to be? Priority is given to competing team members. Would've been interesting if Collingwood got through in 2019.
#foodforthoughtNRL minor premiers and defending champions Melbourne Storm is offering its Victorian fans free membership for 2022.
Storm fans have only watched their team five times in the past two years at AAMI Park because of COVID-19 restrictions.
The initiative is the first by any Victorian club, with Storm rewarding its loyal fans for their support.
Thats for one team and 12 games?Not good enough.
And I encourage those who feel the same way to reply to the email we all just received expressing your concerns.

I'm sure like everyone else they too felt the financial pinch.Thats for one team and 12 games?
“You have not only shown your commitment by buying a membership each year, but you have engaged with the club and our players in record numbers across our social and digital media channels.
“We couldn’t be the club we are today without your support – it has been overwhelming.
“That’s why next year, we are pleased to announce your membership is on us – your club, Melbourne Storm.”

On top of the $600 you're paying for Gold membership, you've got to fork out another $200 to reserve a GF ticket if you can get one!
Individual clubs offer memberships that guarantee GF tickets should they make it. Our club has amongst others the Maurice Rioli Club which is about $250-$300 and guarantees GF tickets (I think it's full atm). At least you can sleep comfortable knowing your money has gone to your club and not the f'kn gestapo at City Hall to feather their own nests!!
Yes, you will get tickets for the GF as a gold member if your club makes it. Don't forget the 2 GFs we played at the MCG were against Adelaide and GWS. Had we played Collingwood in 2019 it would've been more of a shitfight.A gold member who logs on the moment tickets go on sale has always gotten a ticket to the Grand final.
An MRC membership costs more than Gold, and is sold out. And is only useful if Richmond make it.
I’m seriously considering it too. Although my team has been the epitome of mediocre for the past 20 years and I’ve had next to zero value for finals access, although I have been fortunate to go to the GF in 2016-2018. We were all wiped out by 2020 and I think most understood that but I feel really disappointed albeit not surprised by the latest offer. As I posted a few pages ago, Essendon were reamed by the fixture this year with 5 interstate games in the first 11 rounds before Covid hit Melbourne and took away Dreamtime, Hawks game to Launceston and a hub on the Gold Coast for matches against NM & GWS which would’ve been at Marvel. Covid caps meant many of us bomber supporters missed out on tickets to early season matches. I think I determined I’ve paid approx $1,000 for the privilege of attending 4 matches. The club offers a GF guarantee for an additional $100 to any membership that includes 11 home matches and all the money goes to the club. It’s something worth serious consideration after a long time as an AFL member. I really feel for the teams like Geelong, Richmond, Melbourne and the Bulldogs who’ve been denied access to deep finals runs the past two years.I guarantee there will be more than just me. Someone else can get reamed by the AFL. AFL membership no longer is the value for money product it used to be, and that was before Covid.
