Membership 2021 - What does it look like?..

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.

Yeah agree. I think it can work for footy as well. But fans are traditionally resistant to change.
