The NRL and Ticketek are again offering a ticket return service that will give more fans the opportunity to attend the 2013 Telstra Premiership Grand Final.
While the overwhelming majority of members and fans wish to attend the match regardless of who is playing, this service allows those who pre-purchased tickets months in advance to return them for sale to supporters of the competing clubs and others still hoping to obtain tickets.
The refund window will operate from 9am Tuesday, September 24, through to 5pm on Wednesday, September 25 and is available only through the Agency Network.
The returned tickets will be added to the approximately 14,000 being held for release to Ticketed Club Members of the NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final teams on Monday, September 30.
Any remaining tickets will then be released for public sale at 10am on Tuesday, October 1.
All tickets that have been released for the 2013 NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final so far have been sold.
The Grand Final ticket refund service was introduced in 2007.
