I thought it would be good to post hardluck stories here!


I have been a member since 08 and im at 4381 in the line. which means I could be about 16000th in line!

Anyone here a recent joiner of the cue? What number are you?

Member since 2009, currently #5695.
Not holding my breath, new stadium will probably come first (and that's saying something!).
Just grateful that I can get member resale tix and some sort of priority come finals.

Been in the wings since last year.

I'm at 8000 or so.

Long long way. It's worth it for the basic priorities you get though.

My old man is really pissed at himself for not becoming a member when we were kids, and I definately hold that against him. But I still manage to get tickets to most home games anyway so it's all good.

I've been in the wings since the start of last season and I'm 7733 on wait list. doesnt bother me though, I got tickets to 10 games this season and the only ones i didn't go to were because i was at gold coast (round 1 kangas game) or at a wedding (port adelaide game).

3700, 08 as well

Have to renew mine sometime later this month. Only reason, I'm still re-buying my waiting list is because I want the stuff you get as an in the wings member. The new super stadium will be built first.

Rang to day and enquired and they said average wait for in the wings members is 6years, kind of think this is a farce. Honesty goes a long way. 8000 people at $65 for a few small benifits.. No wonder West Coast arnt pushing for a new
stadium

The average wait is in excess of tewn years. If you were told different then you were lied to. On average less than 2% dont renew memberships . So only about 700 memberships are given out.

I'm a member for the sake of being a member, couldn't care less about this waiting list crap, I manage to get tickets to every home game anyway (including finals).

Wouldn't they get more money if those current In The Wings members became full members each year? So surely they would be for a new stadium and not against. Easily worth more money.

It's a bit of a farce, I want to get AFL membership as being in Vic the 40 games per year at Etihad and the G makes sense, but I'm not able to nominate the Eagles as my club. Means I have to choose a different club to give money to.

Obviously you chose a club which isn't arrogant and needs the cash?

On another note, how much does it cost to be an in the wings member? I've never really held any desire to pay money to go to Subiaco Oval so I didn't bother with memberships. The new stadium may change that.

It costs $65 for a crappy bag, a laynard, a card, a yearbook and a couple of eagles stickers that i put on dockers supporters cars when they park in the carpark behind my apartment block for dockers home games

Research shows that if we have a 60000 seat stadium there is a good chance membership will fall due to the ability to get a ticket at will. Also they will no longer be able to manipulate membership prices as people will be able to get tickets easier. At present we have the dearest membership and finals tickets out of all clubs. This will stop when the demand for seats decreases due to the seats available to the public being possibly 15 - 20K

absolutely except by the time the stadium is built, this city will have 400k more people and in the wings membership will be twice as long.

no doubt some wont renew, but as the waiting list proves, there are plenty waiting to take their spot. no doubt WCE will need to add value to the membership but we have business top dogs managing the club. we will sort it out.

Yeh big increase pretty rough tbh an extra 35 bucks or so. Still dark they include public transport in the price, can't believe they can get away with that.
