Seat Return

Can't make it to a game? Return your seat this season!

After a successful introduction in 2015, our Seat Return program is back for the 2016 season.

In 2015, reserved seat members had three opportunities to return their seat if they were unable to attend a game.

85% of seats were sold when returned, and these members were provided with credit towards their 2016 membership.

In 2016, Seat Return will be available for every Hawthorn home game in Melbourne and Tasmania.

Any seats returned will be exclusively offered to Hawthorn members and supporters to ensure our stands remain brown and gold!

If you’d like to return your seat in 2016, please ensure you do so before the following deadlines:

Rd 2 v West Coast (MCG) - Thursday 31 March, 3pm

Rd 4 v St Kilda (Aurora) - Thursday 14 April, 3pm
