We welcome all supporters aged over 16 the opportunity to become involved as a volunteer.
Volunteers assist the Melbourne Football Club in a variety of ways each year:
- Membership sales (on match days)
- Membership outbound phone sales
- Selling raffle tickets
- Children’s football clinics
- Club events
- Interstate supporter group functions

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.
