Grand final ticket sales start Tuesday for members
This year’s record number of ticketed club members will have a secure and easy new way to be the first to purchase tickets for the 2011 NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final from 10am Tuesday, July 19.
Significantly, all Rugby League fans will have the opportunity to buy tickets for the biggest match of the year simply by registering for free as an NRL.com member and it is important all members and fans are aware of when they can purchase tickets during the series of exclusive purchase periods.
Already, ticketed club members will have received by post and email a special ‘Advantage Access Number’ to use when booking tickets.
This will provide greater security and enable families and friends with multiple memberships to buy tickets in one simple transaction.
This year tickets during each exclusive purchase period will be on sale from 10am (not 9am).
NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final tickets will be released for sale to NRL.com members at 10am on Thursday, July 21, and to the general public from 10am on Thursday, July 28.
NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final tickets will be available through Ticketek at www.ticketek.com.au/nrlgrandfinal, by calling 132 849 or at Ticketek outlets.
Details on the exclusive purchase periods are listed below.
Please note, ticketed club members no longer need to present their membership card in order to purchase an NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final ticket – they simply need to supply their ‘Advantage Access Number’.
While approximately 14,000 tickets across all categories will be held back for ticketed club members of the two competing grand final teams, this ticket release is the best opportunity to get the best possible seat for the 2011 NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final.
The 2011 NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final will kick-off at 5pm on Sunday, October 2, at ANZ Stadium, Sydney Olympic Park.
