QLD Cup Grand Final Tickets

GENERAL seating to the Queensland Wizard Cup Grand Final will go on sale through Ticketek this Thursday, August 17. Children under 14 are FREE.

In conjunction with the Wizard Cup?s focus on community and grassroots football, the QRL is offering true value for money for the September 16 event at Suncorp Stadium.

Adult seating is priced at $16, while concession is $9.70. Both prices include free public transport, including use of buses, trains and ferries on the day of the match.

Children under 14 are free, but must present to stadium ticket offices on game day to obtain a reserve seat.

The QRL anticipates shortly announcing that entertainment for this year?s decider will be provided by a home-grown rock outfit with major festival and international experience.

Festivities begin with gates opening at 10am, the FOGS Colts Challenge grand final kicking off at 10.10am, followed by the FOGS Cup A Grade grand final at 11.50am.

Proceedings in the Queensland Wizard Cup final get underway at 2pm.

Among the special guests invited to attend will be the 1982 Easts Tigers team and the 1996 Toowoomba Clydedales premiership teams.

The 1982 Tigers, coached by John Lang, won the first Winfield Cup State League 23-15 against Redcliffe in a precursor to the Queensland Wizard Cup. This year marks the 25th staging of a State League final.

The 1996 Clydesdales also beat Redcliffe to win the first statewide premiership under the modern format, producing a heroic and memorable 8-6 victory which set the tone for a succession of thrilling grand finals.

Other activities for the day include an autograph stand manned by league legends, halftime prizes, face painting and live drum music throughout the day.

A presentation will be made at halftime in the Wizard Cup Grand Final to the QANTAS Player of the Year. Entering the final round of competition, five players remain alive for this coveted mantle.
