Autographed items: 

The Club encourages all supporters seeking autographs to attend one of the many open training sessions, family days, clinics or major club events that are held every year.

The Club is unable to accept items to be autographed on behalf of outside organisations or individuals. Any items sent to the Club for players or coaches to sign will be returned to the sender unsigned.

Please note the Carlton Football Club takes no responsibility for lost items.

Complimentary tickets:

The Club provides more than 10,000 tickets annually to various groups facing disadvantage and marginalisation as well as schools, junior clubs and NAB AFL Auskick Centres within the northern corridor of Melbourne.

Every year Carlton commits to these groups and as such, it cannot provide additional tickets to the general public. However, the AFL also runs a Community Support Ticketing Program.
