What is a replacement game?
With Hawthorn playing four of its allocated 11 home games in Tasmania, replacement games allow Hawks members to gain general admission access into the four allocated replacement games in Melbourne.


Etihad Stadium away game against Carlton in Round 22 can only be accessed by members with a home-and-away game membership.

 The Club has been scheduled a home game at Etihad Stadium against Western Bulldogs in Round 23.

As per previous home matches at the venue, reserved seat holders will have the opportunity to reserve a seat to this match free of charge. The club will communicate with reserved seat holders once this process has been confirmed (likely to be in May 2017).

Important information for members with replacement game reserved seating

Club members from 2016 who held a replacement game reserved seat will maintain the same reserved seat they held at the MCG in 2017 unless a reserved seat request form has been submitted.

New replacement game reserved seat members will have their seats allocated in the front rows of the Q-section in the Southern Stand. These will be allocated on a best available basis.

All replacement game reserved seating members will also have a seat allocated for the Etihad Stadium replacement game.
