Western Bulldogs home members with Marvel Stadium access, will be eligible to redeem a ticket to Sunday’s home opener against West Coast at Marvel Stadium.
Below is the essential information you’ll need to redeem your ticket as part of Tuesday’s member priority on-sale window, via Ticketmaster.
1. Your home member barcode
You will require your HOME member barcode to redeem your ticket for Sunday’s match against West Coast. Your home member barcode is a 12 digit number.
In the member ticketing email, or when checking your barcode online, you may see the prefix Ad-, Co-, or Jn- in front of the 12-digit home barcode number. This indicates an Adult, Concession or Junior membership respectively. When redeeming your tickets, you do not need to to enter these two characters, only the 12-digit number.
An email will be sent to all home access members on Monday (22 March) morning containing this. If you have not received this by Monday afternoon, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your correct email address using the subject line “Please update my email.”
Members can check their individual barcodes themselves too via their MyBulldogs account here.

*Subject to capacity
Stadium fees for Gold and Silver members were previously built-in to the cost of reserved seat memberships and have been removed in 2021. This new on-demand ticketing fee structure ensures members only pay for games they attend. A Western Bulldogs membership in 2021 will cost an average of $16 less per game than the equivalent membership products of other Marvel Stadium tenant Clubs, even once the $10 stadium fee has been applied.
3. Tickets will be on-sale via Ticketmaster

Unlike previous seasons, AFL matches in 2021 will be fully ticketed and fully digital. To access the stadium you will need to use the digital ticket issued to you by Ticketek.

6. EJ Whitten Social Club Room won’t operate at Round 2
Due to Marvel Stadium’s COVID safe plan, movement within the stadium is limited to the segment in which you are seated. As such, access to the Victory Room is not possible for EJ Whitten Social Club members across the stadium as it has been in previous seasons. Based on this, and AFL recommendations, we will not have a Social Club room for Sunday’s Round 2 match. This will be reviewed on a round-by-round basis.
