The National Rugby League advises all fans wishing to buy tickets to the Telstra Premiership Grand Final that the last 7,000 seats will go on sale from 9.00am on Monday morning.
Tickets will be available via telephone and internet sales as well as Ticketek agencies.
To reduce scalping opportunities, tickets will be limited to four per customer. People who purchase over this limit via multiple transactions will have their tickets voided.
Fans will be able to buy tickets, which will be available in categories two to five.
The 7000 tickets are a final release for all fans. Season ticket holders across all clubs received priority periods when the best seats went on sale in July.
Separate bays will be designated for fans supporting the winner of Parramatta versus the Cowboys and for those supporting the winner of St George Illawarra versus the Wests Tigers.
The designations are not compulsory; they are simply a way of allowing fans to buy into areas where the majority of fellow supporters will be located.
With only 7,000 seats available, Ticketek estimates that the allocation will sell out within 20 minutes or even sooner.
?There are 140 Ticketek outlets nationally, a call centre and online sales all accessing the central computer at the same time,? NRL Chief Operating Officer, Mr Graham Annesley, said today.
?Certainly people have to understand that while being in the front of the line at an agency is one option, there are a lot of other people all buying at the same time and Ticketek has a capacity to move an enormous number of tickets in a short period.
?Whichever method of sale fans choose it will be important to get in early.
?By restricting the tickets to four per customer it should increase the chances of those who do get in and queue to get a seat. However, with only a limited supply of tickets there can be no guarantees.
?Ticketek have also worked with us to ensure that maximum resources in the first hour of business on Monday will be focused on Grand Final sales.?
Tickets can be purchased through www.ticketek.com ; by calling 132 849 or through your local Ticketek agent.
