I'm just saying perhaps they could go on the wing? Or along the whole Southern stand, not as deep but the whole way, to bring the height up to the other half of the stadium. Both in "better" spots and evens out the roofline.Let's ask some Richmond fans who missed out on tickets to the grand final if they'd care
Several clubs have people waving indigenous flags. Imagine the uproar if the same occurred.Pretty embarrassing that the MCG security had no idea on their flag policy on GF day - not to mention a complete overreaction sending 6 security guards to (incorrectly) ask someone to stop waving a flag.
MCG's hands are tied by their liquor license. State Gov won't give 'em any better. Stupid thing is, Concerts at all Vic venues are allowed to have full strength liquor, and all sporting events are now allowed to have full strength Cider and RTD Spirits, only beer is mid strength.Midstrength only needs to go. Pain in the ass. Or apply the policy to the entire stadium (MCC, corporate suites)... which will pretty quickly have the same effect.
Yeah, I work in the government and Liquor Licences for public bars depend on a number of factors, including the number of police incidents (which is high for the MCG and means a really high premium or restrictions until it improves).MCG's hands are tied by their liquor license.

When I was lucky enough to go see South Africa v Australia in a Johannesburg T20 match, we sat in an area that had lawn chairs, astroturf underfoot, railings in front of every row with "spray sprinklers" attached that also let you put your feed up, little pools up the front ("little" as in they were deep, but probably only 3m diameter - I wouldn't have gone near them anyway), waiters, a **** ton of room.interesting innovation at the MCG
It’s the MCG though so there’s plenty of space elsewhere for the general public to sit.So far removed of my old memories of Bay 13. Not a bad thing to try at a random ODI but at the same time I am a little sad that they are taking that view away from the general public
1 - A is the front row, AA is around 25 rows up (no I and/or O rows from memory).A couple of queries with regards to the MCG
1) In the GSS - how do the rows numbering work. A is 1st row, B is 2nd, Z is 26th. Is AA therefore 27th row? Only asking as I know that Row Y is the drip line - so wanting to see a few rows behind that
2) What areas would be GA generally be for a low drawing game. Heading to Melb v Bulldogs - so only want GA - is it likely that i'd be able to waltz around and plonk myself in a better seat mid-game? Or is GA the same for all games?
3) How does one get tickets in the Ponsford stand? Is there a re-sale?
4) in the past I have been able to get AFL reserve tickets online via gumtree etc - this doesn't appear available anymore - any other options?
Thanks for the detailed response.1 - A is the front row, AA is around 25 rows up (no I and/or O rows from memory).
2 - Majority of Level Q and a fair chunk of Level M will be GA for that type of game. No GA on Level N.
3 - If it’s GA seats in the Ponsford Stand, just grab one at the gate on the day. Reserve seating will be through Ticketek.
4 - I’d dare say the AFL is cracking down on who can access the AFL Members Reserve. They recently took reciprocal access away from Essential Crows and Essential Power members so they may be removing the ads from Gum Tree themselves.
That's correct.(no I and/or O rows from memory).
Is usually home team members reserved seats so unlikely to get any seats there. Maybe level P in the GSS otherwise the front rows on Q aren't too bad at all.second tier on the wing.
I figured they'd be member reserve - which is why I was hoping for a re-saleThat's correct.

Download the MCG app for GA areas as they're updated.
