However we note that:

  1. the configuration of the ground may change which could affect the split of tickets between AFL Members, MCC Reserve and Competing Club Members;
  2. the number of standing room tickets to be made available will vary depending upon a variety of issues;
  3. if at any time the AFL deems it appropriate to sell tickets to the general public they may do so at any time; and
  4. there will be a substantial number of “walk ups” (50%) in the MCC Reserve.

There may be other functions which affect corporate/function spaces and/or AFL entitlements, resulting in variations to the proposed allocation of tickets between now and 29 September 2018.
