Reselling Tickets - ANZAC Day

The AFL Anzac Day Match between Collingwood and Essendon at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on April 25th 2020 is subject to a major event ticketing declaration under the Major Events Act 2009 (Vic). It is an offence for a ticket to be sold, or offered, or advertised for resale, at a price exceeding its face value purchase price by more than 10%. Breaches can result in heavy fines of up to $96,714 for an individual and $495,660 for a company. 

People who buy tickets from unauthorised sellers need to be aware the ticket they have purchased may be cancelled, and they will be denied access to the venue. They are also unlikely to get their money back.
