COVID-19 impact and unforeseen circumstances
At this time, the impact (note: we know that there will be some impact) that the COVID-19 pandemic may have on the 2022 Toyota AFL Premiership Season is not known. (Note: what are the unforeseen circumstances? If we can’t define it we shouldn’t include it) The impacts of COVID-19 may result in Members having reduced or varied match access or reserved seat benefits compared to those that would apply in the absence of those impacts. Should this be the case, Members may contact the Club to address the nature of the impact on their membership, and, depending on the severity of that impact, may be entitled to a suite of options ensure a commensurate value of benefits are provided for the membership fee incurred.
Membership Cards - Barcoded membership cards are required for entry at games. To gain entry, members are required to carry their 2021 membership card with them.
Lost or Stolen Membership Cards – If a membership card is lost, the member will be required to contact the Membership Support Team to organise a replacement card. A replacement fee will be payable of $10 per card for junior members, and $20 per card for all other memberships. In the instance of a stolen membership card, the card will be replaced at no cost upon provision of a police report or statutory declaration attesting to the card having been stolen.
GST - All prices include GST.
Refund Policy - Refunds are not available on memberships or additional products once purchased. To the full extent permitted by law, St Kilda is not liable to you for any loss or damage you suffer as a result of any 2021 Toyota AFL Premiership Season or Finals Series games being cancelled, postponed or changed (including venue change).
Reserved Seat Holders - Reserved seat holders will be advised of a renewal period each year and a cut-off date for renewal of their existing seat. Any seats not renewed by the cut-off date will be made available for members wishing to purchase or change their seat location. Cut-off dates are strictly adhered to, to ensure that all members are serviced efficiently and receive their cards in a reasonable timeframe. Please note that whilst St Kilda does its best to fill all reserved seating bays, there may be times where if the bay is not at full capacity these seats may be released back to the relevant ticketing agency for sale to the general public.
2021 access membership fees are based on a standard season with 22 home and away games. Should the length of the season be impacted, St Kilda will be in touch with access members to advise changes to the access membership fee structure based on the changes to material benefits
Memberships are non-transferable.
Depending on the membership type and membership category you purchase, a member will receive the following access entitlements to St Kilda games in season 2021:
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 Marvel 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 Marvel 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.
AFL Finals Series
Members with Ultimate status receive guaranteed access to purchase a Grand Final ticket if St Kilda is a competing team. These membership categories are capped to ensure all Ultimate members have access to a ticket.
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.
Grand Final Terms
In the event that St Kilda participates in the 2021 Toyota AFL Grand Final the following will apply: We will communicate information relating to Grand Final ticketing to members once arrangements are finalised should we be participating in finals series.
