Calls are generally made on a Monday and Tuesday night from the offices at the MCG. This program will commence on Monday 20th March 2017 and run through until early May.
Please contact the club on (03) 9652 1101 or email email@example.com for more information about the membership drive program.

Interstate Volunteers often assist in a slightly different capacity to those based in Melbourne. For more information, please click here for a link to contact information for your local supporter group.
Another way to get involved is to become part of our cheer squad, the Demon Army. On match days the Demon Army are located behind the goals in a family friendly environment, adding to the voice and colour of match days. The group also has the responsibility of preparing the weekly run through banner, and representing the club Australia-wide. We are looking for anyone that wishes to get involved to help out. For more information on how to get involved in the Demon Army click here.
