Victory and the club's active supporters have clashed over the past two years, with the North Terrace ceasing as a group in November 2016.

The North Terrace said the decision was due to “unsustainable and untenable” impositions from Victory.

Among those cited impositions was restrictive memberships and a new seating regime which restricted entry into the standing area.

However, in a club update, Victory revealed the changes made for the 2018/19 season.

"After positive discussions with fan representatives, it has been agreed that three bays at AAMI Park and seven bays at Marvel Stadium will be designated under the new name of ‘North End Standing’ bays," the club statement read.

"Members and fans in these areas no longer need a specific seat number to gain access to a standing bay.

"The new guidelines allow anyone with a valid ticket or membership to access a ‘North End Standing’ bay and enjoy the different match day experience – subject to capacity – with casual or one-off supporters also welcome.

"Bays 36, 37 and 38 will now be ‘North End Standing’ areas at AAMI Park on match days, while the designated bays at Marvel Stadium will remain the same.

"We will continue to work together with fan representatives to ensure the atmosphere at Melbourne Victory games is the best in the Hyundai A-League."
