Are you able to buy reserved seats for the Collingwood game yet? On Ticketmaster it shows a link only for 'on TM resale'. Also once they are available to buy can I buy reserved seats together for Richmond members AND Collingwood members (using membership numbers?) and also non-members . I am trying to get as many Collingwood supporter mates around me as possible for the memorable event.

Ok I think I've found out how to get tickets by accessing the link from the Tigers website (no idea why Ticketmaster makes it difficult from theirs). I have worked out how to buy tickets for mixed bag but there only seems to be tickets left high up on level4. Does this sound right or would they release more later on (as I've seen them do in the past)?

Just for anyone else considering going to the game, I'd say it's going to be a full house. I manged to get Row S, 4th level on the wing (needed 6 tickets) so looks like it's already booking out fast. All lower seats Level 4 and other levels seem to have exhausted allocation. They'll probably introduce more as the game gets closer I'd presume.

On a totally different matter the Saints have slashed their GA price for this weekends game to $13. How embarassing is that?, they are playing a Melbourne club, Carlton, (who think themselves as a big club :hihi :rofl), and they are afraid that they won't draw a crowd so are reverting to desperate measures.

They could play that game at Burnley Oval and it still wouldn't get a crowd.

Oh right that explains it. Didn't even notice when I bought them eventually that I was on ticketek.

I got tickets last week (Monday) and already it was only level 4 available and that for 2 members (myself and my daughter). If they haven't released all the seats yet then what the hell are they doing? Holding back tickets should be illegal.

My biggest problem was getting the damned Ticketek site to work. Log in, go through the (too many) steps to actually get some tickets, go to pay, get asked to log in and lose tickets. It was pathetic, site was totally useless, tried a couple of browsers, tried a heap of times. Eventually had to download their app and that actually worked. Very very unimpressed, they need to do better, but then, I expect IT to fail as it does so often.

So I just had a look at Ticketek for a ticket to the collingwood game on July 26, and here is what I found:
Level 1 Goals: $85 +bf
Level 1 Wing: $85 +bf
Level 2 Goals: Allocation Exhausted.
Level 2 Wing: Allocation Exhausted.
Level 4 Front: $74 +bf
Level 4: $50 +bf
GA: $27 +bf

I'm going GA, but those prices are insane!! Who can afford that? Not your average punter, thats for sure. :mad:

Gee, I got a ticket quite a while ago, Level 1 wing: $43.

So they just increase prices when they feel like it?

Gee, I was able to use our memberships to upgrade to a reserved seat for $7 per ticket, front of L4. The prices you list will include GA, but even then $74 is more than what I got hit for.
