The first tickets for the 2012 NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final will go on sale to Ticketed NRL Club Members from 10am Tuesday, July 24.
As NRL teams begin making their run towards the NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final in this week’s Rivalry Round, it is important all members and fans are aware of when they can purchase tickets to the biggest game of the year during a series of exclusive purchase periods.
Significantly, all Rugby League fans will have the opportunity to buy NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final tickets in the priority period by registering for free as an NRL.com member.
NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final Tickets will be available for sale to NRL.com Members and non-Ticketed NRL Club Members from 10am-9pm on Thursday, July 26 (online sales only).
NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final Tickets will then be available for sale to the general public from 10am Thursday, August 2.
While approximately 14,000 tickets will be held back for Ticketed Club Members of the two competing NRL Grand Final teams, this first ticket release is the best opportunity to get the best possible seat for the 2012 NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final.
Already, Ticketed NRL Club Members will have received by email a special ‘Advantage Access Number’ to use when booking Grand Final tickets.
This provides greater security for Ticketed Club Members and enables families and friends with multiple memberships to buy tickets in one simple transaction.
Due to the record number of Ticketed Members able to purchase tickets in this period, the number of tickets available for each membership is two.
