AFL Community Support Ticketing Program

The Australian Football League (AFL) receives many requests to assist with ticketing from a wide range of community groups including schools, junior football clubs, youth & church groups and formal organisations supporting specific disadvantaged or disability groups.
The AFL recognises it has a corporate responsibility to the broader community and therefore provides community groups with access to ticketing through the AFL Community Support Ticketing Program. The program offers groups up to 40 complimentary tickets (subject to approval and availability) for one of the selected matches at the MCG listed below.

Applications for 2024 will open in mid-February and will be accepted until the allocation of tickets is exhausted.

Please be advised we recommend getting your application in as early as possible as the demand for the program is extremely high and in some cases, requests may not be able to be fulfilled if the allocation for a game has exhausted.
Before submitting your application, please review the below Terms and Conditions carefully. Any applications that do not align with the below T&Cs are unable to be considered.

Groups can apply for up to 40 complimentary tickets to one of the selected games (tickets can be used for adults, juniors and concession).

  • Individual contact name
  • Link to the community group website/social media page for verification.

If the above is not provided, the application will not be considered.
