    Restricted members - 2012 AFL Grand Final

    Sep 28, 2012

    While club rules do not provide for Restricted members’ entry to the MCC Members Reserve for AFL grand finals, the club is mindful of its responsibility to utilise the Reserve to its full capacity.

    Accordingly, a limited number of entry tickets to the 2012 AFL Grand Final on September 29 between Hawthorn and Sydney Swans may be made available for purchase if, in management’s opinion, the granting of entry to Restricted members will not compromise the comfort and convenience of Full members.

    WHAT WILL HAPPEN?

    There will be 8500 seats and 1000 standing room spaces available in the Members Reserve for Full members to access after Gate 2 opens at 8.00am.

    The club will assess the early attendance of Full members on grand final morning. 

    If it appears likely that the Reserve will not reach capacity, a limited number of entry tickets to the Reserve to access walk-up seating will be made available to Restricted members.
     
    An announcement as to the availability of tickets for Restricted members to the 2012 AFL Grand Final will be made on the club’s website, Twitter and Facebook on grand final morning, along with the relevant purchase details if required.

    IF AVAILABLE, HOW MUCH WILL TICKETS COST?

    Members should be aware that the MCC pays into the gate for each members’ attendance at all AFL matches. This figure is aligned to public ticket prices.

    Therefore the cost for Restricted members’ entry tickets to the grand final this year (if any are sold) will be $299 for Restricted members and $192 for Restricted Junior members.
