Terms and Conditions
The below terms and conditions govern the purchase of an St Kilda Football Club (St Kilda) Membership for season 2017. These terms and conditions are correct at the time of publishing but can change at any time at St Kilda’s discretion, in which case you will be notified of the relevant changes.
Depending on the membership type and membership category you purchase, a member will receive the following access entitlements to St Kilda games in season 2017:
General - Access is subject to capacity. Access may be gained to unreserved seating on a first-come, first served basis subject to availability. General Admission areas are on level 3 at Etihad Stadium and Q Section (level 4) at the MCG. 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.
Reserved Seating - An allocated reserved seat for home games at Etihad Stadium. If your membership includes access to both home and away games, please note that access at away games will be into general admission areas only as advised. (Excluding Cheer Squad members as they receive seating at home and away games)
Subject to Capacity - General admission membership packages have stadium entry rights that are subject to stadium capacity. If a stadium capacity issue is identified for a specific game (i.e. ticketed events), the AFL or St Kilda may declare the game as a ‘Fully Ticketed’ or ‘Fully Reserved’ game. If a game is declared as such, members with general admission packages are able to upgrade their membership to a daily reserved seat through the nominated ticket agent to guarantee entry. Upgrading may incur a cost (depending on seat location) and ticketing agent fees.
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 all 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.
