With the opening game of the 2017 AFL season just days away we take a look at the current membership figures for the 18 clubs and see how they’re tracking compared to last years final totals.

The Adelaide Crows are set for a massive 2017 after smashing their previous years tally by more than 12,000 members.

Essendon, GWS Giants, North Melbourne and Port Adelaide join the Crows in clubs that have surpassed their 2016 totals.

Unsurprisingly Carlton look to be heading for a disappointing year with only 41,076 members currently recorded, 9,000 shy of their 2016 tally.

Collingwood have not supplied a current 2017 figure but we can assume they are once again going to tally an impressive total after 74,643 signed up last season.
