Super off topic mate: Wonder if subsidised something. We all know they give away lots of free tickets for GWS local gamesYeah, AFL handing out freebies I can't see, but I can see that with the corporates - "Oh, we're based out of Sydney so go GWS! Oh, we're based out of Melbourne so go Richmond!"
Free tickets to a home and away game (~$30 or less) is substantially different to free/discount tickets to the GF ($300+). Every GWS member I know who went paid full price (plus airfares/fuel/accom) to go.Super off topic mate: Wonder if subsidised something.

I was there. There was a surprising amount of orange to me but I'd say it was probably only about 10% of the crowd, so ~10k - it did stand out simply because it was orange. The AFL members were almost completely Richmond, an entire wing, and the other wing (MCC members) was predominately Richmond with scattered pockets of nothing.Seeing even Pies and Blues supporter mates I have hate GWS and where go tigers. There was to much orange in crowd if someone not giving away crap.
I mentioned this before a 2-3 game in previous years as with young kids and sports I end up not getting to all.Is there a three game Melbourne membership on offer, if not there should be.
I pay for a full season most years as a Brisbanite, but if I thought I was not going to be at a number of the games I would and have gone for 3 game memberships.
2018 we ended up getting two 3 game memberships for myself and my son, that worked out pretty good, economically speaking.
After all its your hard earned, and the Lions aren't the rspca .
Went to renew our Vic membership package and it was $ 10 dearer than last years price? We questioned as we were advised it was the same price as this year but was advised the member upgrade has gone up by $ 10.After such a great 2019 on and off the field for the club.. as a Vic Member the four games at same member prices for 2020 is very deflating and a big step back. My seven year old son loves going to the footy and is mad over the Lions so you can imagine he's disappointment that he only gets to go to four games - no way we can get to Geelong on a Saturday night and he has footy himself first thing Sunday morning.
I honestly think the club needed to push the AFL a lot harder on this issue. Fitzroy supporters have every right to be filthy. Our club was taken from us and many followed them when they merged and many didn't. The least we can expect is the AFL to at least honour the agreement.
I will no doubt buy Membership for myself and my son to continue our support but it does leave a sour taste.
Yep noticed September member was $50 for next season, could have sworn it was $40 this season.Went to renew our Vic membership package and it was $ 10 dearer than last years price?

Ok , maybe not ideal for your circumstances regarding the random kids commitments with sport and school .I mentioned this before a 2-3 game in previous years as with young kids and sports I end up not getting to all.
Club needs to purchase tickets in Melb.. We not a home side..
I say it gets messy.
There is a limited number though.Increasing it by $10, and approximately 10,000 members would be September members I'm assuming, that's an additional $100,000. If not more, with more people signing up next year.
I forgot to mention I said in my email to club make up
for less games in Melbourne that club play in the
1996 jumper with ffc on chest as a way to please the
vic members off course no response from club
