As a general admission member access to games is not guaranteed and is subject to capacity. You are encouraged to reserve a seat in order to guarantee entry, particularly at high demand games. Members will be required to pay additional fees and charges when reserving a seat. Access may be gained to unreserved seating on a first-come, first-served basis subject to availability. Members can upgrade to a reserved seat at the venue for an additional fee, also subject to availability.

What is the difference between Standard, Premium and Ultimate Memberships?
There are 3 levels of membership products available, the distinction between each is noted below:
- Standard Memberships are general admission, level 1 behind the goals and level 3 seating products that do not have Social Club or Grand Final entitlements.
- Premium Memberships are general admission, level 1 behind the goals and level 3 seating products with Social Club and Grand Final entitlements.
- Ultimate Memberships are level 1 wing and level 2 seating products with Social Club and Grand Final entitlements.
Is there a membership package that guarantees access to the Grand Final?
Premium or Ultimate memberships provide guaranteed access to purchase a Grand Final ticket if St Kilda is a competing team. These membership categories are capped to ensure Premium and Ultimate members have access to a ticket.
- Ultimate memberships provide a Priority 1 access to purchase a Grand Final ticket. Ultimate Members will be allocated a Grand Final ticket ahead of Premium Members.
- Premium memberships provide a Priority 2 access to purchase a Grand Final ticket. Premium members will be allocated a Grand Final ticket after Ultimate members.
Ultimate members wishing to sit with Premium members can do so by purchasing during the Priority 2 period.
The sale of Grand Final tickets is managed by the Australian Football League in conjunction with the two competing clubs and Ticketek. The arrangements for Grand Final ticket sales are subject to change and are confirmed ahead of the announcement of Grand Final ticket prices in any year.
Why does the club have Priority 1 and Priority 2 periods for Grand Final tickets?
The club now has two categories for Grand Final ticket allocation, this is to provide members the opportunity to access a ticket to the Grand Final that may be similar or equal to the membership type they purchase each season.
Consideration was made to provide members with greater length of service with Social Club entitlements a priority however this does not allow families the opportunity to attend together due to differing lengths of membership.
All Premium and Ultimate members are guaranteed a ticket to the Grand Final if St Kilda is a competing team. These membership categories are capped to ensure Premium and Ultimate members have access to a ticket.
Who can use my membership card? Can I let my friends and family use my membership card?
St Kilda memberships are non-transferable and can only be used by the person whose name appears on the membership card. Security has the right to confiscate your card should it not match the details of your ID.
Am I eligible for Concession Membership?
To be eligible for a concession membership you must be the holder of a valid Pension or Student Card. You will need to have this card with you when attending all Saints games as venue security and club staff have the right to ask for proof of concession upon entry to the game. Should you not be able to present proof of concession your membership card will be confiscated.
As a member do I get a discount on reserved seating?
You have two options to purchase reserved seating as a member:
- Option 1 - Purchase an annual reserved seat at a seasonal discounted price. Sit with other Saints members and be in the comfort of your own seat for the entire season (Home games only). Annual reserved seat memberships provide a discounted price compared to purchasing seating one game at a time.
- Option 2 - Upgrade your general admission membership to a reserved seat one game at a time through the relevant ticketing agent by quoting your 12 digit membership barcode number (located on the reverse side of your membership card). This option incurs the daily reserved seat price for a particular seat location and applicable ticketing agent fees. Once an upgrade is made to a reserved seat for a particular game your membership barcode becomes inactive and the reserved seat ticket issued becomes your form of entry.
How long after I pay for my membership can I expect to receive it?
Membership cards and packs will be mailed from mid-November with an expected 10-15 working day delivery time after being dispatched.
The membership office will be closed from Thursday 22 December, 2016 until Wednesday 11 January, 2017. During this time no membership cards or fulfilment products will be mailed.
Will I receive my membership card and membership pack at the same time?
Membership cards and packs will be mailed separately as we use different providers for each service.
To improve efficiency, where possible, members with the same surname at the same address will receive their membership cards in the one envelope and their membership packs in one envelope.
What are the 2017 Choice Items?
Members are entitled to a complimentary choice item with their membership purchase for the 2017 season. There are three items to choose from - a member scarf (default), a member cap or the option to donate your item to a Saints Community Partner. You must indicate which item is your preferred choice, if you do not provide the club with your preferred item a member scarf will be mailed to you as the default choice item. Once received, choice items are not able to be exchanged.
Please note: non access members (excluding Saints Supporter and Digital Members) are not included in the member choice program as the items are not suitable.
If I have a membership and my friends and family don't, can we still sit together at the match?
Yes. All membership categories entitle you to general admission seating. This means that your friends and family can purchase a ticket through the ticketing agent and together you can choose your seat in the general admission seating area which is generally located on level 3 at Etihad Stadium and designated level 1 (M-section) or level 4 (Q-section) at the MCG.
If you are a reserved seat member you will not have access to bring friends and family into the reserved seating area. However, you still have the option to sit with your friends and family in the general admission seating area.

What does it mean when a game is determined fully ticketed?

Members with general admission access are required to upgrade their access for the game to a reserved seat through the relevant ticketing agent to guarantee entry. Additional fees and charges may apply. For further details please call the Membership Support Team on 1300 467 246. Members will be notified by email of any changes to the game status, and advised on the most convenient way to gain access to the game.

Daily upgrades can be made through the ticketing agent call centres, outlets or websites by using the 12 digit barcode number located on the reverse side of your membership card. The price of the ticket will be discounted by the entry price as this is covered when providing your membership barcode. You will be required to scan in with the upgraded ticket for entry into the venue and access to your seat however your membership card should be with you at all times when attending a game.
Where is the Membership Support Team located on game day?
