HawksDirect Payment Plan


By purchasing a membership on the HawksDirect payment plan indicates you have read and agree to the terms and conditions of the HawksDirect payment plan agreement on membership.hawthornfc.com.au.

You are also approving the Hawthorn HawksDirect payment to roll-over for future seasons unless you opt out. To opt out, members will need to notify Hawthorn Football Club through our opt-out process once all payments have been finalised. Call 1 3000 HAWKS (42957) or email membership@hawthornfc.com.au for opt-out information.

Hawks Direct opt out forms are not accepted over the phone. An opt out form must be completed and returned the Hawthorn Football Club to discontinue the automatic roll over. 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 can be required to change membership categories for the following reasons:

  • A membership line is discontinued
  • 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

Appropriate communication will be sent to members affected by a changed category of membership.

Members will have an option to opt-out of this membership category or select a new membership category on their own behalf.

Prior to HawksDirect memberships rolling-over to the new season, any outstanding amounts will be manually deducted from your nominated credit card. Outstanding amounts must be cleared for current memberships to be made financial. Members with declining credit cards will be contacted.
