2020 Membership FAQ's

As was announced by the AFL on Friday 15 May, the next phase of the 2020 Toyota AFL Premiership Season was played without access to spectators. Since then, due to the ease of current restrictions in some states, a restricted number of spectators have been allowed to attend matches since Round 5.

Considering the announced changes, the HFC has made available to eligible members a range of compensation options. To view options for your membership, please visit our COVID-19 page.

Due to the nature of tax-deductible donations made through the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF), members who select this option will not be entitled to any 2020 membership benefits for the remainder of the 2020 season including access to games if made available.

HFC members can donate all or some their 2020 membership fees, less the administration cost and benefits already supplied, to the HFC Foundation and receive a tax deduction for the amount of that donation to be issued by the ASF.

The administration cost will be charged at $20 per member and $40 for family memberships which covers the cost of HFC Membership third party expenses including but not limited to card printing, fulfilment, communication and postage costs.

Members can choose a mixture of donation, credit and refund options if they wish. However, should the total become greater than 50%, they will effectively terminate their 2020 membership and associated benefits including existing level of membership and reserved seats if applicable.
