If joining prior to January 25, 2013, your AFL Membership card will
be mailed in early February, 2013, prior to the commencement of the
2013 NAB Cup. If joining after this time, there is a 10-day

Can I attend matches with an Absentee Membership?
An Absentee Membership does not include match or finals
entitlements; it simply is a holding fee for your membership
status. The AFL does, however, issue Adult Absentee Members with
two MCG AFL Reserve single use guest passes (valued at $62) which
can be used for a walk-up match during the home and away season.
Please note that guest passes will only be sent to Adult Absentee
Members who renew by June 30, 2013.
Does an AFL Family Membership exist?
The AFL does not have a specific family membership, but does have a
family discount offer available to eligible members. To be eligible
for an AFL Membership family discount, there must be two full-fee
paying parents (adult members with no concessions) and one full-fee
paying junior residing at the one address.
Any additional immediate junior family members (Under 17) residing
at that address will be provided with a complimentary Membership
upon payment of the junior joining fee. Proof of residency for both
parents (i.e. a copy of a utilities bill) is required when lodging
an application for a family discount.
When applying for this discount, please staple together all
application forms and clearly label 'Family Discount' on the top
right hand corner of each page.
What is the Junior Policy within the AFL Reserve?
Juniors under the age of six as at January 1, do not require an AFL
Junior Membership or Junior Guest Pass, and are able to enter the
AFL Reserve free of charge, however they must not occupy a seat
where seats are at a premium (reserved seat ticket events).
Juniors over the age of six, as at January 1, and under the age of
17, as at January 1, will be required to obtain an AFL Junior
Membership or Junior Guest Pass to enter the AFL Reserve.
What is an AFL Under 7 Membership?
An AFL Under 7 Membership is a good idea for children who regularly
attend the football with their family and have not yet reached the
eligible age for a Junior Silver Membership. By paying the AFL
Membership Junior joining fee of $220 prior to your child reaching
the eligible age, your child will become an Under 7 Member. The
benefits of Under 7 Membership include an Under 7 membership card,
which will allow your child to purchase reserved seating with the
rest of your family (up until Week 2 of the Toyota AFL Finals
Series only) and, as an Under 7 Member, your child will be placed
on the waiting list for AFL Full Membership.
I am eligible for a Concession Membership in 2013. What can I do if I want to join before I receive my identification?
If you will be eligible for a concession membership for the 2013
Premiership Season, but do not have the required documentation at
the time of renewal, the following options are available:
- Join as an adult member on the AFL Advance part-payment plan.
The monthly instalments deducted prior to the lodgment of your
concession documents will be based on the adult monthly instalment.
Once your concession documents are submitted, the instalments will
be adjusted to reflect the remaining amount owing on your
concession membership. Please note that concession documentation
must be lodged by June 30, 2013, to receive the concession
- Pay the adult renewal invoice in full and apply in writing for
a refund of the difference between the adult and concession
membership prices once you have the required documentation. Please
note that concession refunds must be lodged by close of business on
June 30, 2013.

As an AFL Member how can I continue to support my club?

non-Victorian venues as part of the standard AFL Membership package

entry entitlements to their respective club's home matches because
the Club Support fee contributes to gate entry costs. Entry is
subject to capacity and some venues may require AFL Members to
purchase a club-reserved seat package or a match-specific reserved
seat to guarantee entry.
How can I become an AFL Full Member?

renew their membership.

season, however we will advise you of your place in the queue on an
annual basis during the renewal period.
