AFL tickets selling fast
FOOTBALL fans hoping to get a grandstand seat for the AFL NAB Challenge match at the BCU International Stadium on Saturday night have been given a clear message by Coffs Harbour City Council.
“Tickets are selling fast, so make sure you get in early,” council’s sports unit manager Nikki Greenwood said.
Greenwood said there were only a handful of grandstand tickets remaining for the clash between Sydney and St Kilda.
“The announcement at the weekend that we’d be hosting the Swans and the Saints has seen a real spike in ticket sales,” she said.
“Some of the sport’s highest-billing stars are going to be on the field at the stadium this weekend.
“It’s an occasion that no self-respecting AFL fan can miss.”
The first bounce for the main event on Saturday night, which is the first AFL match to be played in Coffs Harbour since 2003, will be at 7pm.
The curtain-raisers to the main game will be an under-13 representative game between Mid North Coast and the local AFL North Coast at 4.50pm, followed by the under-15 teams from both districts at 5.30pm.
Tickets can be purchased at the ground when gates open at 4pm. A $2.00 booking fee applies to all tickets purchased at the venue.
