All tickets purchased through Ticketmaster are now digital, meaning you can easily access your tickets on your phone via the Ticketmaster app or mobile web browser via Ticketmaster.com.au, add them straight to your phone’s ticket wallet, and share them with your friends and family.

Get to know Ticket Forward so everyone has their own ticket

Before the game, every adult MUST have their own ticket on their own phone – that way we can ensure social distancing and reduce queues at the entry gates.

Ticket Forwarding is free and allows you to quickly and securely share individual digital tickets with your family or friends via the Ticketmaster App or Ticketmaster.com.au.



How it works

1. Open the Ticketmaster App, sign in to your account, and click ‘My Events’ in the drop-down menu

2. Select the event, open the order, and tap ‘Forward’

3. Select the ticket/s you want to forward, enter your friend’s name, email address, and a message for them, tap ‘Confirm’

4. Your friend receives an email, asking them to accept the forwarded tickets, and they can either login or create a new Ticketmaster account to accept.

5. The tickets are now ready to go in your friend’s Ticketmaster account and marked as ‘Forwarded’ in your account .

Read and acknowledge COVID-19 event day terms and conditions

Depending on the current Government guidelines in the state that your event will be held in, there may be additional event day health and safety conditions you will need to agree with – these may include providing proof of vaccination, check in on arrival, etc.

Before proceeding to the ticket purchase page, you will need to acknowledge that you have read and agree with any applicable guidelines for yourself as well as any patrons aged 12 years and over in your group.

You will not be able to move forward in the purchase process without acknowledging that you have read and agree to the any listed healthy and safety terms.

On game day – keep an eye out for an SMS from Ticketmaster

Ensure your contact details in your Ticketmaster account are always up to date, because on event day you might receive a handy SMS** from Ticketmaster.

If your State Government requires it, the SMS will contain links to all the pages you need to ensure your venue entry is as seamless and quick as possible.

Avoid queuing around the venue’s QR code and instead use the link in the Ticketmaster SMS to take you directly to the venue’s COVID check-in page so you can check-in as you approach the venue and have your Proof of Vaccination ready to show venue staff by the time you reach the front of the venue.

Once you’ve show staff your Proof of Vaccination screen, the other links in the SMS can also take you to the Ticketmaster App or Ticketmaster website so you can easily access your tickets. 

**Please note: The SMS will come from “Ticket Info” – this is the official Ticketmaster SMS account.
