GEELONG and Richmond club members will get first crack at tickets to Friday week’s qualifying final when pre-sale opens at 9am on Tuesday.
Tickets range between $35 and $92 depending on seating, with club members given exclusive pre-sale access between 9am and 1pm, before tickets go on sale to the general public from 2pm.
AFL members will have to wait until 9am Wednesday to source tickets for the blockbuster match.
It’s recommended Cats fans sign up to a Ticketek account before tomorrow’s sale opens.
“It’s a big stadium, the MCG and we’ve got 56,500 members,” Cats chief commercial officer Justin Reeves said.
“I haven’t got an official forecast, but I think the AFL is tipping a crowd of about 85,000.”
The Cats don’t make any money off ticket sales and only the premiership club walks away in a stronger financial position in five weeks’ time.
But Reeves said he hoped the deeper the Cats campaign went, the stronger next year’s membership numbers would be.
“Finals you don’t make any money unless you win the premiership,” he said.
“The upside to that is obviously the further we get into the finals you’d think we’ve got more chance to sell more memberships next year. But from a direct income stream, there’s no money in it unless you win the premiership.”
The premiership club will walk away with $1 million in prizemoney.
Reeves also said that the new Cats Shop at Simonds Stadium had been fantastic for the club, averaging double the return of the previous club store.
