Ticket Updates and FAQs


I am a Geelong Cats Member with a Reserved Seat Membership. Am I entitled to sit in this Reserved Seat for finals matches?

No, finals matches are AFL events and therefore Members do not have access to their Reserved Seat for these matches. You will be required to puchase a ticket via the relevant ticket agent if you wish to attend the game.


I am a Geelong Cats Member. Do I still need to purchase a ticket for the finals?

Yes, you will need to purchase tickets should you wish to attend a finals match.

As a Member of a club participating in the finals, you will receive priority access to purchase tickets before the general public for games in which your club competes.

You will also receive access to purchase additional tickets for friends (Please note: the quantity of additional tickets is subject to the teams and venues please refer to your member emails or check for updates).

Members who purchased their Membership after 25 August 2017 do not have access to purchase finals tickets via their club Membership. These Members will not be able to purchase tickets until they are made available to the general public.

Please check with your club should you have any queries about your entitlements.

All Membership barcodes will be required when purchasing tickets.

If purchasing at an outlet or via phone, you will be asked which team allocation you would like to sit in.

Where will our seating be for weeks 1, 2 & 3 of the finals?

The AFL distributes an equitable number of tickets within each Reserved Seat category, along with restricted/standing room tickets (if applicable) to Members of both competing clubs for each final.

You will be able to nominate which club you wish to be seated with.


How are tickets sold?

Tickets will be sold on a first in, next best available basis and will be subject to availability.

You will be able to purchase based on your preferred price category for the first three weeks of the finals. However, due to the demand for tickets, all ticket agents are advised to sell ‘next best available’ to make the allocation process fast and convenient for purchasers.

Please note: Payment for all finals tickets is strictly cash or credit card.

During the club Members on-sale you must have all your 2017 Membership barcodes available and you can only purchase a finals ticket equivalent to the type of Membership you hold (i.e. an Adult Member can only purchase an adult finals ticket).


Can I purchase tickets through a third party, such as eBay, Gumtree, Ticketmaster Resale or other re-sale markets?

As there is always a high demand for AFL Finals tickets, some individuals seek financial gain by purchasing finals tickets and then on-selling them at a higher price. The AFL can not verify tickets advertised via third parties and so we encourage all Members and fans to purchase tickets via the primary ticket agent (links to purchase online can be found at to avoid the risk of being denied entry to the game.


I am an AFL Member with a club support package. Can I purchase tickets from the club allocation for weeks 1, 2 & 3?

AFL full and silver members (excluding absentee Members) whose club of support is one of the competing clubs may access the competing club Members’ ticket allocation in the public section of the ground in weeks 1-3.

AFL Members who choose to purchase tickets from the competing club member allocation, will pay the full public ticket price.
