I was offered a full membership in 2020 after being ITW for 7 years ...yikes!!!
Still haven't sat in my seat.
I waited for 10 years and only got my membership when the new stadium opened. Shows how loyal our member are, considering I was on the waitlist for 2009 when we finished bottom four and 2010 when we finished last, yet still waited another 7 years!

:thumbsu: ... whats the go with membership dollars? Are you paid in advance? How far?
Pledged some of my membership, but all paid up this year so fingers crossed we can get to a few games this year.
Got to sit in Premiership terrace last year for 2 games, was very nice and found my seat and sat in it for a minute to test it out.
Looks top notch up there.

I remember reading ages ago, that even after 2010 we still had the highest membership retainment rate in the league.

Richmond fans are bandwagoners :)

Was in the Wings until the new stadium was finished, accepted a 5 game membership in 2018, then offered full membership in 2019.

Lucky campaigners.

FLEXI isn't the worst to be fair. Considering there's 11 games a year at home, some are on rainy sh*t days and some of them are snore fest games against crap teams anyway.

5 blockbusters that i select on good nights, plus the away Derby for the year is actually close to fine for me.

I would of stayed on flexi if I knew what was coming.

Flexis a great option, you can always switch back.

I was thinking last year I be witness to a premiership, how wrong was I.

Congrats! Just get that foot in the door, nominate for a seat change next year and see what's on offer.

My first seats in 2018 were on the 5th level, River/Camfield pocket/flank, about 5 rows from the top. Next year I managed to move a whole 2 sections towards the wing and another 5 or 6 rows closer to the front. Could've done even better but I wanted aisle seats.

I'm in the top tier. But out of the sun all year long so I haven't bothered to request a change. Quite like my seats actually, on the 50m arc and can see everything, but still feel close because Optus is awesome.

I don't think I'll change seats unless I win lotto or catch the next Reddit stockmarket wave and get in the rich bastards club. The sealed off area where they only start to fill their seats partway through the first quarter because they're too busy berating Jeeves for serving warm chardonnay in the restaurant there.

Does anyone know how the seating upgrade window works?

I've got access to it currently. There's probably a handful of diff realistic options.



But is this a live thing? Should i be rushing to grab a pair of good one's or can i take my time?



Thinking the 545 one's might be the go, bang on the wing and a few from the back. But i could also go the 537 to stay out of the sun.

I'm pretty sure it's live and seats open/close as time goes on - i.e. your allocatd seats are locked until you change.

Doubt you'll see much sun that far up in 545 but I'm not 100% sure.

Me too, I'm one row from the back in the second cheapest category. It's completely weather proof (rain and sun) and we've come to know the members around us, so don't really want to move. Being high we can see the tactical setups really easily which I've come to appreciate.

I have considered moving into the middle section (blocks starting with 3) but I don't think my mate wants to spend the money and we're attached to the group around us now.
