Wagga Wagga City Council is thrilled to reveal tickets to next year’s Marsh Community Series showdown between reigning AFL premiers, Richmond, and Greater Western Sydney at Robertson Oval will go on sale in January.

AFL and club members will enjoy the first crack at securing sought-after tickets to the grand final rematch on Sunday 8 March when a pre-sale opens at 9am on Thursday 30 January.

Just 24 hours later, tickets to the biggest and most anticipated AFL pre-season fixture of the year will go on sale to the general public.

Mayor the City of Wagga Wagga Councillor Greg Conkey is expecting strong support for the fixture, which is set to coincide with an AFLW premiership fixture on Saturday 7 March between the Giants and Tigers.

“I would encourage footy fans to jot January 31 down on their calendars to make sure their ready to get in quick, and secure their tickets,” Councillor Conkey said.

“Richmond have a membership base of more than 100,000 and the Giants have a huge following in this region.

“These tickets will go fast.”

Meanwhile, league fans, Raiders faithful and Knights supporters are being urged to jump onto Ticketek online to secure seats at next year’s NRL Premiership blockbuster on 18 April 2020.

Seats are selling fast at McDonald’s Park since the start of general ticket sales earlier this week.

An extra 1500 reserve seats are being installed at McDonald’s Park, taking the total number around the ground to 2280.

“We expect the majority of these seats will be gone by the New Year, so we’re advising people to get in quick to avoid disappointment,” Strategic Recreation Officer Peter Cook said.
