Apologies if this has already been covered in the past.

My boss has purchased me 2 MCC VISITOR tickets for Anzac Day this year, but he said that he isn't going to the game. Does anyone know if you need to have the Membership holder accompany you into MCC reserve? My seats are in the nosebleed section of Level 4, but i don't want to get there and not be let in.

Thanks for any advice if anyone has experienced this in the past.

Yes, the rules state that the member must accompany their guests, but whether the MCC police it that strictly is another question. Being Anzac Day and a category A game, I would think they would be on the look out for this sort of stuff.

I’ve never seen or known someone refused entry because the member wasn’t with them, but I’ve tended to enter the ground when it’s busy and they only seem concerned with whether you have a collar on your shirt or not.

Thanks for the reply. Turns out he is probably going to go anyway but will line up to try and get himself into level 2 or 3. But still won't be with us!

Do MCC members get free entry?
No, we only get free entry for the football and cricket. Soccer, RL SOO, concerts all require paying for entry (albeit cheaper). For reference, entry to the SOO last year was $60, and I believe that Guns 'N' Roses was $200+.

I think technically he is supposed to, but it's not policed at all. Literally the only situation I can think where it would be a factor would be if you had to be removed from the stadium. :p

Were he to make a habit of not turning up after buying a guest pass that would almost certainly get the MCC's attention, but that would be his issue, not yours.

I bet we've all noticed that the font has changed on the scoreboards again, the number 8 is a bit hard to see from where I took the photo on Saturday though

When they redevelop the southern stand, it would be good if it became like Perth stadium and put all the Corp boxes tired on the wing and have all outside seating at the punt road end

Then for grand final put all the participating clubs seating in that section for noise

A lot of the external seating is tied to corp arrangements (ie dine in the Lindsey Hassett, sit outside)

Question for those who know the G well. I'm organising a trip for round 8 v the Hawks.

I have a foible and like to sit up high for perspective. I figure a H/A game in the graveyard slot is a chance to experience that at the G, a ground I love BTW.

I'm not particularly worried about segredation, I've been there for the 2017 P F surrounded by the Tiger army and last year for the SF.

Ticketek is saying level 4 is exhausted and is only offerring level 2. Are the upper levels on the wing usually closed or are they likely to open up closer to the game?

I can wait, the game won't sell out and if worst comes to worst we can sit with our cheersquad.

Level 4 seating in the public areas except for quite a bit of the Olympic Stand are unreserved general admission seating while the wings are mostly taken up by the AFL members and the MCC. Level 2A in the Southern Stand is underrated (unless if it's raining) and sometimes is general admission seating. Around the away cheersquad area is usually walk up general admission seating as well

Tks that helps. If it's the highest available. Dont mind paying for a reserved seat, but sometimes GA is better. If you do find yourself in a group of hoons you can move.
