The General Reserve tickets at the MCG. Are these numbered seats or just entry to a particular section and sit where you can?


Cheers


They're numbered allocated seats.

I recommend booking your tickets in advance. Predicting how ticket sales are going to go is an inexact science, and while it's likely that there will be availability on the day, especially for Brisbane, I wouldn't totally bank on it.

In 2006 both Tests sold out for (I think) all but the last day. Brisbane didn't quite sell out last time, but Adelaide did on at least the first 3 days.

If you were to make a last minute decision to go, I'm pretty sure by asking around you'd find someone looking to off-load spares even for days that sold out, but if you know you're going, why take the chance?

Nothing booked yet. Will have a bike and be doing some training as well as have a big race near Margaret river the weekend of the Adelaide test so need to get used to riding and running in heat. Could look at twin rooms to save cash?

How can we get tickets in the nearest bays to the Barmy Army?

The best solution is to pull in any favours you can with friends, family or contacts and get them to register with the Australian Cricket Family which is the official membership for Australian Cricket fans ( in every other year you can spot these loyal supporters as they dress up as empty seats) but unfortunately not so when the Mighty England come and visit! Anyway it is essential that your contacts or friends register with the ACF by 5pm EST on the 25th June. This will then give you priority booking access for tickets to every game from the 2nd July until the 5th July and it will be your best chance of getting tickets in the adjoining sections to where we will be congregated. To join the ACF go to this website: www.cricket.com.au/fans/australian-cricket-family
You will not be able to register from the UK.

When will tickets go on General Sale?

We have been advised by Cricket Australia that tickets will go on General Sale on 17 July at 9am local time, except in Melbourne where it is 12 noon local time.

Hi Dave,

Just a quick question, Are the general sale tickets available for non australia residents who don't have an australian credit card or does the same rule apply to the priority tickets? I.e you have to be an aussie resident to be able to buy a general release ticket on ticket master. I live in Indonesia see and have Indonesian and Uk credit cards.

Ben.

General sale tickets are available to anyone, regardless of nationality or where they live.

I have a few ACF membership numbers now, will i be able to complete the sale here in the UK using one of the numbers and have the tickets sent to an Australian address? Obviously my CC will be registered here.

The priority window for ACF members is only supposed to be available to ACF members with an Australian registered credit card and an Australian address. My guess is that if you try to order tickets with a UK registered credit card to be sent to an Australian address the transaction will be thrown out, but it all depends on how secure the Ticktek and Ticketmaster sites are, and how serious they are about enforcing Cricket Australia's policy.
