Playing for Mulgrave in 2024? Here's what you need to do...
There's two steps: (1) EFNL registration and (2) MFC membership.
1. REGISTER FOR MULGRAVE WITH THE EFNL
The EFNL has moved to a new management system in 2024, with PlayHQ replacing Gameday.
You can register to play for Mulgrave in 2024 at this link: https://www.playhq.com/afl/register/877d6a
If you have already used PlayHQ for another sport (basketball, for example), then you can use that same account to log in. Otherwise, just create a new account.
Your footy data history has been transferred across from Gameday, so you'll be prompted to claim that history profile when you sign in.
Transferring from another club? Any player who is transferring to Mulgrave from another club (including the Rovers, or another junior club) will need to have a player transfer lodged by MFC. Just get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get this done.
EFNL registration is $29 for the season, which covers your player insurance.
All players must be registered before our 2024 practice matches, or will not be eligible for match selection.
2. PAY YOUR MULGRAVE MEMBERSHIP FEES
All players are required to pay membership fees for the 2024 season. You've got two options: pay them yourself, or get yourself a player sponsor.
As well as covering your fees for the year, your membership includes:
- Membership card
- Fixture magnet
- Membership sticker
- 2024 warm-up top
Paying yourself? Click here to pay. Cost is $500 (senior players) or $350 (Under 19.5 players).
Got a player sponsor? This is the best option as your sponsor pays the fees on your behalf. You'll need to source the sponsor yourself - any business or individual can sponsor a Mulgrave player. Cost is $550 (senior players) or $400 (Under 19.5 players). Sponsors can pay here.
As well as covering your fees for the year, player sponsorship also includes:
- A club membership for the sponsor (Entry to home games, membership card, fixture magnet and sticker)
- The sponsor's name, or business name (with URL link) displayed on the players page on the MFC website
Players must have paid their membership fees (via payment or player sponsorship) prior to Round 1 of the season, or will not be eligible for match selection. If your individual circumstances make this difficult, please get in touch with David Rowland (Football Manager) to discuss - we are very willing to make arrangements where required and discussions will be strictly confidential between David and yourself. David can be reached on email@example.com or 0419 990 014.

I'd like to wish the growing Mulgrave Football Club community a very Merry Christmas. I hope you all get some time off and really enjoy the Christmas break.
2023 has been an outstanding year for the club, starting with some significant recruits and ending up with all three teams making into the finals for the first time In a very long time.
We were also able to move back home and get into the new pavilion at Mulgrave Reserve. It's not perfect and we are still working with council on some adjustments, but what we have now is new, clean and really fit for purpose... it's just a nice place to be and it will get better.
The players have already been on the park for pre-season training. Numbers look really strong and the footy department has been working hard on some new recruits to continue to improve our on-field performance. More importantly we have a great group of players and coaches who are all there for the right reasons. Good culture is hard to define, but we have something brewing and everyone is really looking forward to the start of 2024.
Off the field we are still down on volunteer depth. Too much gets simply gets done by too few. We need more of you out there to be prepared to just do a little. We are very specific about our job allocations, so there is a job that suits everyone’s time capabilities.
The committee will be taking a few weeks off and will be back for a formal committee meeting on January 23rd. The 2023 AGM will be held at Mulgrave Reserve on Friday February 2nd, post a training session. Everyone is welcome to drop in and check on how we are going.
As we bring 2023 to a close, I also wanted to thank all of our sponsors who just keep putting their hands up and making it all possible. We have a strong and active group.
Also, I wanted to thank our coterie group, the Mully Grubs, who have made such a difference to the club over the last four years by supporting us socially and financially and bringing a great group of people back to the club. If you are not a member of the Grubs, please reach out and find out more about them. The Mully Grubs Golf Day is on Friday February 23rd and will be another sold-out event. We are going a bit early so the players all get to enjoy it as well. Don’t procrastinate or you will miss out!
Stay safe, enjoy the holidays and we hope to see you all in Season 2024.
2024 pre-season training gets underway on Wednesday November 15th.
Note the venues for each session.
All players welcome, as are those playing Under 17.5s for Glen Waverley Rovers in 2024 - if you'd like to have a run before Christmas, you're very welcome to join us.
