Membership 2019


#393

Yeah, hanging out for it. Just about bursting. I’m gonna farkin go spastic Rnd 1.


#394

Yes. They are. I called the club out last year when a few dozen people on twitter started thanking the club for freebie memberships, co-incidentally applied just before the cut-off date.

Then aprominent board member/blitzer absolutely denied it happening.

So I guess a lot of people are lying.

And people on here are still happy to call out Hawthorn for counting dog memberships and Carlton for counting Carlton supporter memberships.


#395

The club certainly gives out GloBall and Auskick memberships each year, if that is what you are referring to?


#396

No.
The lapsed members who got freebies mid way through last year.
There seemed to be dozens of them on twitter, so must have been hundreds all up. A couple were/are blitzers.


#397

Ah. The club may have offered a one time ‘win back’ campaign last year to lapsed members. Not sure whether it will happen this year. I’m not entirely across the operational/campaign side of membership though, and sometimes I find out about things after you guys do…


#398

Did. Not “may have”.
Riiiight before the “count the memberships” cut-off date.
So colour me cynical.

I daresay some dept or manager had a metric based around that.


#399

My wife went to the tennis on Tuesday and Wednesday at RLA. Ticket in the shade for just 1 daytime session cost more than my whole EFC season ticket. Crikey.


#400

Four ground passes were over $200 and all we could go to was doubles and juniors. AFL is good value for money. Mind you we don’t pay the players 63mil for a fortnight’s work.


#401

Hey Katie, if I threaten to not re sign next year, do you think the club will spring for a free High Mark membership for moi? I’d also like to keep my reserved seat please.


#402

Hey come on, you know they have just spent millions revamping the place.

No wonder Victoria’s road are rubbish between the AFL and TA the roads haven’t got a show.


#403

HA! You wish buddy!


#404

Best part for me was 01:12 seeing a much slimmer and fitter Francis running on the boundary. He should be awesome in 2019+


#405

Your threat has to be believable mate. Anyone here could see right through that one.


#406

58,250 members as of 9am today. Wonder how the numbers compare to last year? Feels likes take up has slowed a little after xmas?


#407

We were around 58K in early-Feb 2018. On a par with/marginally ahead of last year’s numbers. Am expecting this to pick up and reckon we should push for 85K+ members this year.


#408

a good start to the season will bring in the members


#409

:grin:


#410

Just got around to processing the membership invoice. Thinking about running a sweep on dates that’ll receive my membership card/s…


#411

Big thanks to the membership department for helping us out with a dog lead. We got another dog, and wanted him to have the same lead as his new brothers have, but they were part of the 2018 pet member pack and are no longer available. Darli asked if they could do anything to help young Max out, and they just contacted us to say they have gotten us one and asking our permission to post it to our home address.

WELL DONE EFC MEMBERSHIP DEPARTMENT
