Buying tickets to the A-League game

By Cat1404 20 August 2009 19

The Central Coast Mariners are playing Perth Glory at Canberra Stadium next month and my partner and I are interested in going but I can’t find where to buy tickets.

Ticketek has nothing. I found an article OutInCanberra article, but it claims that the tickets are on Ticketek, which they’re not.

Or if they are, they are hidden to my searches. Can anyone help me out?

What’s Your opinion?

The Canberra Times this morning reports only 300 tickets have been sold. Give Ivan Slavich a ring – he’ll sort out free tickets for you, your extended family, your neighbours and everyone else you know.

Astrojax, I do think that there will be a Canberra A-League team and although I’m no fan of football, I hope that they will make a go of it. If everyone who’s been signing petitions and making noise about Canberra United’s bid gets behind them and purchases a membership, and then stays a member (regardless of performance) they should get off to a great start.

They’ll probably need either big corporate sponsorship, big A-League contributions, or a few licensed clubs behind them, though. The Raiders (like nearly all NRL teams) are basically kept afloat by contributions from their network of clubs, and even with all the Brumbies’ members they struggle to remain viable.

I understand today is the day for a decision on Canberra’s A-League status. I dare say the outcome there will have a bit to do with ticket sales for the match in question in this thread.

an a-league team, should one be based in canberra, will have the same sort of longevity that the brumbies, the raiders and indeed all the other a-league teams have because the national league won’t allow it to fail. and i do think canberra will have an a-league team in the next 4-8 years, hopefully at the short end of that scale, even sooner… it would be a necessary move for the ffa to include the nation’s capital, and winning the WC (or at least the bid to host it!) would accelerate the impetus to have a team here.

and they’d be known as the canberra astrojax, of course!

i am of course otherwise deliberately stirring suggesting a raiders team might fall over, but the rugby league itself may if the off-field antics continue and then start alienating families and fans, and if the cross-over between rugger and league continues and we end up not being able to tell one game from the other… the time frame is perhaps very pessimistic, but i have genuine doubts as to the longevity of both those codes.

you wish, greeneyed; let’s see what you are saying about the beautiful game here in four or five years time… (and i’d love to hear what you your eulogy to the raiders was by then, too…)

What people were saying when we had the same reaction 4 or 5 years ago. You know, the old ‘now Australia’s made the World Cup (Germany) that’s the end of all the other codes’.

The Raiders will still be here in 4 or 5 years but Canberra won’t have an A-League team. I’d love them to, but the reality is it will go the way of the Arrows and the Cosmos

You’ll be there with half a dozen others, you won’t need to pre-book.

Turn up on the day. It will be far from a sell out

Get cheap seats and find better ones once the match starts, assuming its not a large crowd

Thank you so much for that guys. Now, does anyone have any idea about the difference between the platinum, gold and general admin tickets? We’d obviously prefer seats close to the action but is it worth the extra money to get the gold or platinum ones?

not sure there are really many bad seats at the bruce stadium, so if cost is an issue, go the general admission. hopefully see you there!

twitter was my friend. David Mathews seems to know a lot about football – $32 doesn’t seem that bad…

Firstly, let me say that the Ticketek website is a very convoluted beast and that’s being nice.

If you click on the ‘sports’ tab, then use the horizontal scorller to find the A-League tab, the click on Mariners and follow it from there. Not easy and certainly putting in searches doesn’t help.

peterh 11:26 am 20 Aug 09

I have asked both of my contacts about the game and where tickets come from. will advise once they reply…

If you can’t get through using the link, search for Mariners home games at Ticketek

The Ticketek search function is utterly useless, but…

I didn’t find it by searching Ticketek – I went to the Canberra Stadium site first.
Should also say this took all of 5minutes including an initial Google search.

Google is your friend.

Link is here:
http://premier.ticketek.com.au/shows/show.aspx?sh=MARINER&searchId=f44fb904-9830-4363-a6ad-a75155d6a1ff
Click the link to ‘Canberra Home Games’ for single match tickets or ‘Canberra 2 Game Pass’ if you want to go to both.
(From the Ticketek homepage just type ‘Mariners’ into the search field and bob’s your uncle!)
