Ticketmaster, alongside longstanding partner the AFL, are today announcing a new pricing strategy that will see no transactions fees on any tickets for AFL, A-League and Big Bash Matches at Marvel Stadium.
The change will come into effect immediately for AFL matches, with tickets or the 2020 Toyota AFL Premiership season going on sale to AFL and club members on Monday 24 February.
There will be 43 home and away AFL matches scheduled at Marvel Stadium across the 2020 season, with St Kilda (14), Western Bulldogs (12), and Carlton (10) locked in for the most games at the AFL-owned stadium.
In 2019, more than 1.3 million fans headed to a footy game at Marvel Stadium.
AFL Chief Executive Gillon McLachlan says the new partnership is a win for fans as the AFL continues its commitment to access and affordability.
“Marvel Stadium hosts nearly a quarter of the AFL season’s matches, our new pricing strategy with Ticketmaster removes a barrier and provides an immediate saving for fans,” he says.
“Over 7.5 million fans attended the footy in 2019, our clubs do a great job in providing fun and engaging match days and we will continue to give fans the best opportunity to enjoy a game of AFL footy.”
Maria O’Connor, Managing Director, Ticketmaster Australia and NZ says, “Ticketmaster is very proud of its longstanding partnership with the AFL and Marvel Stadium. We have been there since the gates opened in 2000 and look forward to continuing working with one of the country’s most innovative venues.
“We will continue to provide the venue with a strong and stable ticketing platform, while bringing our cutting-edge and fan-first digital ticketing and venue technology to Marvel Stadium.”
Coinciding with the Marvel Stadium ticketing announcement, the AFL has also announced a three-year price freeze of General Admission tickets to matches at Marvel Stadium.
General Admission Prices for season 2020, 2021, and 2022 will be the same price as 2019.
