Important information for members with replacement game reserved seating 

Club members from 2017 who held a replacement game reserved seat will maintain the same reserved seat they held at the MCG in 2018 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.
