Both tickettek and ticketmaster allowed you to buy tickets on multiple days. It took me a while to find it

I didn't find this option on Ticketmaster, but did eventually on Ticketek!

Oh dear, looks like my sis has cost me a few quid then. She boought for 8 separate days and presumably paid the fee 8 times. What is the fee? please say five bucks or less.

Edited: Just found out $5.55 x 8 days. £27. :( for the MCG I've got M15 (next to BA) on Boxing Day then M22, M22 and M23. Looking at the ground that seems close enough to the BA at M16.

I had to do the same, I added to basket but then couldn't find where to buy the next days, so I ended up doing it all that way, one day at a time ;)

Unless they're releasing more tickets, it looks like Adelaide is almost completely sold out!!!!

Bishbash. I wouldn't worry mate. I couldn't find a logical way of getting multiple days into one basket either so just bought individually as quickily as I could to ensure I got the tickets as they were selling out pretty quickly, especially for Sydney. It meant paying the booking fee (which varied between 5 and 8 dollars so between 3 and 5 quid). Is not ideal but i'm pretty sure you would have paid teh fee on every ticket anyway. It certainly seemed the case and seeing as the alternative was delaying completing your order missing out on tickets altogether then is a small price to pay.

I saw (i think) that you are in Sydney Bay 4 on one of the days. I got Bays 4 and 5 for a couple of the days so suspect that there will be a few English in those areas. Is not ideal as was hoping to be next to the BA (which fortunately I am for MCG all days!!) but as per previous years, it's been easy enough to wander over and join nearby bays after lunch. Even more so if the ground empties out of locals after Day 2 like it did in 2010/11

Jeeder, that is family day when I'm going with my sister, brother in law and two kids. She did ask me if I wanted to sit with the barmies that day but thought I would sit with them seeing as they've helped me out a bundle getting the tickets and it could be good fun me and my sis(eng) v him and the two kids (convo). Think that's the Jane McGrath pink day.

Fees really p1ss me off, just tell us it is $55 instead of saying $50 then adding a $5 fee. bugbear of mine.

My sis just told me she had to pay a booking fee for every day as she couldn't find out a way to buy multiple days in one booking. What a con, or did she miss out on a little trick. Did others pay a booking fee for every day?


Ticketmaster had an option to purchase multiple days and on Ticketek you had to go through to the payment page before you could opt to buy additional tickets.

I was the other way round from you, found it on Ticketmaster eventually.

I bought 8 tickets for Adelaide and only paid 1 CC charge and one booking fee.
