Ticket fees - 2014 AFL season

Feb 25, 2014

Following media reports, Melbourne Cricket Club wishes to clarify the changes in transaction fees that have been introduced at the MCG this AFL season.

The MCC and Ticketek, the ticketing agency for MCG events, have reached agreement on a simpler fee structure for transaction charges incurred when pre-purchasing tickets  at Ticketek for MCG matches in the 2014 AFL Home and Away season.

Under the new price structure, which is designed to spread the fees and charges evenly across purchase methods, a flat fee of $2.50 per transaction (not per ticket) will apply to all methods of ticket purchase.

Previously, each method of ticket purchase had a different transaction fee. They were:

• $9.00 for operator-assisted phone bookings.
• $4.95 when purchasing at an agency.
• $2.00 when requesting tickets to be posted in the mail after purchasing online.
• Tickets purchased online (called an Ezy Ticket) did not incur a transaction fee.

While Ezy Ticket customers will now incur a $2.50 fee this year for the first time, customers who purchase at an agency will have their fee reduced by $2.45 compared to last year, and those who use operator-assisted phone bookings will pay $6.50 less than last year to complete the same transaction.
