The AFL last week announced a freeze on all ticket prices across the 2014 Toyota AFL Finals Series. Supporters will be able to purchase tickets to matches across all four weeks of the 2014 finals, up to and including the Toyota AFL Grand Final, at 2013 prices.
The on-sale time for General Public finals tickets has again been brought forward to ensure supporters are able to secure tickets as early as possible.
General public tickets for week one of the finals series will be available to purchase from 2pm next Monday, September 1 (local time).
Competing Club Members wishing to purchase Priority Access tickets throughout the Finals Series have exclusive access from 9am-1pm each Monday, commencing at 9am next Monday, September 1 (local time).
In addition, competing Club Members who purchase tickets to week one of the finals are eligible for a discounted offer on week two tickets if their club is still competing.
Any competing Club Member with a week one ticket will receive a 20% discount to purchase a ticket in week two if their club is competing. To have access to the 20% discount on a week two ticket, each member must supply their 12 digit membership barcode number at the time of the ticket purchase for both week one and week two finals matches.
The offer is only available within the member pre-sale time on Monday from 9am-1pm, for terms and conditions visit www.afl.com.au
The on-sale schedule for 2014 Toyota AFL Finals Series tickets are as follows:
Competing Club Members Priority Access exclusively on sale from 9am-1pm each Monday (local time) prior to the match
General public tickets on sale at 2pm each Monday (local time) prior to the match
AFL Members will have access to AFL Reserve tickets at the MCG from 9am each Tuesday prior to the match
AFL General Manager Commercial Operations, Darren Birch, said the AFL had worked hard to ensure the 2014 AFL finals series would be accessible for all fans.
“There’s nothing like seeing an AFL Final live and by bringing forward the on-sale time for general public finals tickets, along with freezing this year’s finals ticket prices, we have made it easier for many fans to secure tickets to the AFL’s showpiece matches of the year,” Mr Birch said.
“By way of rewarding those fans who attend the opening week of the finals series we’re also pleased to again offer a discount of 20 per cent on ticket prices for week two of the finals for those club members who hold a week one ticket.
“With one in every 28 Australians signed up as an AFL Club member, we’ve never had more members looking to attend matches than we do at the moment. With that in mind we encourage all competing club members to take advantage of the exclusive access window each Monday morning across the finals.
“We’d also urge all fans to go along to the finals in full voice and proudly wearing their club colours – go however you like, just don’t go quietly.”
Showdown final/Derby final
In the event of a showdown final between Adelaide and Port Adelaide, or a derby final between Fremantle and West Coast, club members are advised to familiarise themselves with the on-sale information communicated by the Club and the AFL. Members are also encouraged to purchase online as there will be high demand and limited availability for these matches. Members of each club will purchase from a protected allocation of seats and while one club’s allocation may sell out quicker than the other, the split of the member allocation will be 50/50.
The AFL reminds fans they should only buy tickets from a registered seller, otherwise there is no guarantee those tickets are valid and will admit entry to the game.
Any person buying a ticket from a non-registered seller runs the risk of purchasing fraudulent tickets which may be cancelled without a refund and the bearer of the ticket refused admission.
The Ticket Agent Terms and Conditions state that tickets may not, without the prior written consent of the ticket agent and the seller, be re-sold or offered for resale at a premium (including via on-line auction sites) or used for advertising, promotion or other commercial purposes (including competitions and trade promotions) or to enhance the demand for other goods or services, either by the original purchaser or any subsequent bearer. If a ticket is sold or used in breach of this condition, the ticket may be cancelled without a refund and the bearer of the ticket may be refused admission.
The AFL works with online bodies such as eBay to identify tickets being re-sold and those tickets can be cancelled upon identified.
The Toyota AFL Grand Final is specifically covered by anti-scalping legislation in Victoria.
