Melbourne Victory have changed their membership to an English Premier league style model as they don't know if (or how many) fans can attend games when next season starts.
All members pay a base membership (Category A, B or C) at a much lower price than a regular membership. Then you have to buy tickets on top at roughly half price of face value. If you attend every game, you end up paying about the same amount as the previous season.
If AAMI Park has a 25% or 50% crowd cap due to COVID, tix will sell on a first-in-best-dressed basis.
That makes more sense. Split it between Club Membership and then Season Tickets. The Club Membership is supporting the club without expecting anything in return. That for me is a fairer and more realistic way to judge membership numbers. It would also reinforce that all club members are equal as opposed to now where bundling membership with hospitality/coiterie tiers gives the impression that some members are more members than others.
Same. Membership for 2021 the same price as 2020.I just got sent a membership card and a statement about how much they will debit from the credit card on December 1. I have it set up for automatic payment and pay all in one go.
I had to ring and change a couple of little things but all that should be fine.
The membership cost is set to the same as for 2020, no discount but no rise.
The membership card has no bar code as they are planning for balloting for entry to games under the assumption that there will be restricted crowds in 2021. This affects me less as I'm a Roaming Tiger member so I book my seats each game and have a ticket anyway (printed for fast entry!).
Not sure what they will do if there are normal crowd sizes, maybe send us an electronic member bar code to walk in. This would have a small effect for me as I can get general admission entry to away games in Melbourne with just the membership card.
So I suppose I'll pay for my membership and my daughter's membership (which now costs more as she won't be a student any more, no concession membership for her now) and see what happens closer to next year's season.
I reckon those cards are our membership cards for 2021, we wont be issued cards with barcodes as likely will be a ballot system for entry & you would ( I assume ) be emailed your ticket/ barcode for entryAt a time when we're cost-cutting it seems ridiculous to mail out 100,000 member packs with plastic cards that don't have barcodes to get you into games that may not allow crowds anyway.
What's the point of having a blank useless piece of plastic when they're going digital with game access anyway?I reckon those cards are our membership cards for 2021, we wont be issued cards with barcodes as likely will be a ballot system for entry & you would ( I assume ) be emailed your ticket/ barcode for entry
