NRL Mailbox: 2011 Grand Final information
We’ve received quite a few enquiries about tickets to this year’s NRL Grand Final so here’s some information:
Tickets to the NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final will go on sale to ticketed NRL club members on Tuesday 19th July, 2011 from 10am.
Non-ticketed NRL club members and NRL.com members will be able to purchase tickets from Thursday, July 21 at 10am, and the general public will have the opportunity to secure their tickets from Thursday, July 28, at 10am.
Members unsure of their membership category should contact their NRL club to confirm if they are deemed ticketed club members.
Tickets will be available through Ticketek at www.ticketek.com.au/nrlgrandfinal, by calling 132 849 or at Ticketek outlets.
A single adult ticket can be purchased for as little as $65 and up to $190 for a Category 1 seat, while a junior ticket ranges from $50 to $140 depending on the seating you’re after. Families can enjoy the game for as little as $170 for two adults and two juniors or one adult and three juniors. There will of course be the usual concessions available to full pensioners and children between the ages of four and 15. The companion card can also be used.
Also, for the first time, the NRL has this year introduced a new way to target scalpers and protect our ticketed NRL club members when purchasing Grand Final tickets.
Each ticketed NRL club member will this week be mailed out a pass code called an ‘Advantage Access Number’ that will allow members more opportunity to sit in the groups they want to sit with, avoid the ticket agency selling issues of the past and it'll make things harder for scalpers as we’ll be able to track each transaction from start to finish.
The new system is easy to use and will provide the NRL with an effective way to track purchases and protect members' rights.
One of the great benefits of this system is families with multiple memberships will be able to buy tickets in the same row and enjoy the Grand Final excitement together.
The Advantage Access Number will be sent to the primary account holder of each – so if a family or member has multiple memberships, one Advantage Access Number which covers the entire family/group will be sent to the person who purchased the memberships.
We’ll be releasing the full 2011 NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final Ticket details for all members and fans this Friday, July 15, so keep an eye on www.nrl.com.
This year’s NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final will kick-off at 5pm on Sunday, October 2, at ANZ Stadium, Sydney Olympic Park.
