You MUST enter the full name and contact number of every attendee at checkout
In line with Government COVID Safety and Contact Tracing regulations, when purchasing AFL Tickets you MUST enter the full name and contact number for every additional attendee/ticketholder in your group before purchasing tickets.
After selecting your tickets and delivery method, ticket purchasers will be instructed to enter the full name and mobile phone number of every attendee in their group. You will not be able to move forward from the ‘payment’ screen without entering all attendee contact details in.
**Please note: Ticket purchasers do not need to enter their own contact details during the purchase process
What if someone in my group doesn’t have a mobile phone?
If someone in your group doesn’t have their own mobile phone, ensure you enter their full name alongside the account holder/ticket purchaser’s phone number. You will not be able to proceed through the checkout if a full name and number aren’t supplied for every ticket.
What if there are children in my group?
If there is a child in your group who doesn’t have their own mobile phone, ensure you enter the child’s full name alongside the phone number belonging to the parent/guardian they will be attending the game with.
If I enter my friends’ phone number in, will they be sent their ticket?
You will still need to follow the Ticket Forwarding instructions to ensure each attendee has their own ticket on their own phone before attending the game. Contact Tracing does not replace Ticket Forwarding, and all tickets will still be in the purchaser’s account after checkout.
What if my group changes because someone can’t attend the game?
If your group changes before game day, ensure you forward their ticket to the new attendee’s phone – entering their full name and contact details to comply with Contact Tracing requirements.

Make sure you have a My Ticketmaster account
Get the basics covered before tickets go on sale by logging in and checking your Ticketmaster account ahead of time. If you don’t have a Ticketmaster Account, make sure you sign up in advance – Ticketmaster.com.au. In your account, add your top acts and events to your ‘Favourites’ and you’ll get alerts and email reminders before every onsale.
Sign in ahead of time
Remember to triple check your passwords, account information, and billing information are all filled in correctly in advance, that way you’re not facing any last-minute account updates when trying to process your order.
Keep an eye on the clock
There will be a time limit applied to all transactions as they’re progressed through the ticket purchasing stages. Remember to keep an eye on the timer on your screen and move through the processing pages as quickly as possible (this is even easier when you’ve completed the account set-up stage we mentioned above).
What’s new for the 2021 AFL Season?
Every venue will have different COVIDSafe guidelines – put in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of everyone on event day. These safety measures may include zoned seating, cashless purchases, staggered entry times, and more.
It is best to stay up to date with any important guidelines before heading to the stadium on game day – keep an eye out for any communications from the AFL, your Club, the Stadium, and Ticketmaster for more information.
