I'm hoping someone can help me here, but I looked to see if I could buy tickets to the St Kilda match, and the ticketmaster link on the first page is returning no tickets available. I've already booked and paid for flights so it would be a disaster if we can' get tickets... surely it can't be sold out yet?!

Certainly wouldn't be sold out. Maybe the Ticketmaster website is having another brain fade :?

For information : The following reserved seat areas have been made available to Victorian West Coast members. If you ring Ticketmaster you may be able to buy a reserved seat in this area as well. Although, as a general rule if you buy a reserve seat to an Eagles Game in Melbourne you generally end up sitting in an area with a good smattering of Eagles Supporters in any case as the "Home" team members sit together in there own seats.

That is interesting, it is the link for the game but no tickets available. Have you been trying for a while or was this the first time? Ring them and see if it is just the computers stuffing up.

Wouldnt've thought tickets would be available this early. Isn't it usually a fortnight beforehand or is that just for at Subi?

I got tickets to some games over the long weekend in Melbourne a couple of months before the games so I think they should be available. Maybe they release more two weeks before the game.

Interesting. It must be just because at Subi there are so few tickets available each game for the public. Probably just a ticketmaster screw up.

Thats what I thought also....

After further investigation yesterday it seems that the GA tickets haven't gone on sale yet, and nor have member tickets (Club / AFL) - whatever that means. The tickets available through the link on the front page however seems to suggest it being sold out ?! Wierd.

So it seems I haven't wasted $600 on the airfare at least...

No matter what happens you'll get into the ground. No chance of a sellout really and at very, very least there is standing room.

Reserved seat sales for all Melbourne games started back in March - so yes they should be available now. AFL / Club member tickets (ie for Victorian Eagles Members) have also been on sale for quite some time - I already have my ticket in my hot little hand.

General Admission tickets don't go on sale until much closer to the event - this is for seating on Level 3 and they generally wait until closer to the game. If the game starts to look like a sellout or reaches a certain trigger, then it becomes a "ticket only" event. In this case, there is no General Admission (sit anywhere) entry and you must reserve a seat. This normally only happens to Essendon games played at the Dome.

There is definitely still good reserved seating available right now on Level 1 $41.25 a seat

There will be Eagles fans in every pub between the Novotel and the Telstra Dome. A lot of people stay at the Novotel and have drinks before and after the game but I find it too expensive.

Hell yeah it is!!! Join us all for a few drinks before the game.

P.S. Thank you Travel & Sports Australia, for making that first drink a free one too! :)

Can someone help me with the seating at Telstra Dome? I got seats in level 1 Aisle 12 Row T. Is aisle 12 in the same postion in all three levels just one behind the other? The ticketmaster map only shows the aisle numbers at the top of level 3. I have been there before but was so excited I didn't bother to check all that out!! Thanks if anyone can understand what I'm asking.
