(b) All members on the HawksDirect payment plan are automatically included into an Auto Renewal Agreement, facilitating automatic rollover of your memberships from year to year.

(c) Should a member be required to change categories of membership, the most appropriate membership according to the individual membership will be selected by Management. The selected membership will be applied to the member's HawksDirect membership. Members may be required to change membership categories for the following reasons:

  • The member is too old for that category according to AFL regulations
  • Membership terms and conditions have changed
  • Reserved seating allocations have changed
  • Continuously declining payments

(d) Members will be given at least 30 days’ notice in writing via email of changes in the new amount of their next season's membership and to the terms of the HawksDirect payment plan agreement. If you do not wish for your Membership to roll over into the following season, you will be required to opt out by calling the Membership department on 1 3000 HAWKS (42957) by Tuesday 26 October 2021.

(f) Members applying for the HawksDirect payment plan for the first time, prior to the first scheduled payment on Monday 1 November 2021 will have their first payment taken out upon receipt of application and then continue to have payments deducted as per the normal payment plan schedule. All members applying for HawksDirect after Monday 1 November 2021 will have the total number of previously scheduled payments deducted upon receipt of application and then subsequent payments as per the normal payment plan schedule.

(g) If your debit is returned or dishonoured by your financial institution, an email, SMS, or letter will be sent requesting immediate payment. Any fees levied to you by your financial institution will be payable to you.

(h) It is your responsibility to ensure that: (1) the account details you have provided are correct and include notification should the expiry date change throughout the year (2) you have sufficient clear funds available in the nominated account, on the scheduled drawing date.

(i) If your membership is suspended or cancelled you will not be able to gain access to games including finals at the MCG, UTAS Stadium or Marvel Stadium or interstate. In addition, interstate members will be ineligible for a ticket to a game played in their state.

(j) If you believe a withdrawal has been initiated incorrectly, please contact Hawthorn FC Membership department on 1 3000 HAWKS (42957). You will receive a full refund of the withdrawal amount if we cannot substantiate the reason for the drawing.

(k) No refunds will be provided due to change of mind once the season begins.

(l) If you have an outstanding balance after the August instalment, this amount will be carried over and added to your 2023 renewal invoice. This payment must be paid upfront prior to renewing your 2023 membership. Members with an outstanding balance will be removed from the HawksDirect payment plan.
