Greens sport spokesperson Sam Hibbins has called on the State Government to amend the AFL Grand Final ticket scheme to allocate more tickets to competing club members.

“The AFL is raking in profits from the Grand Final. It’s time they gave back to fans by increasing the ticket allocation to competing club members,” Sam Hibbins said.

“Just 30 per cent of Grand Final tickets are allocated to competing club members while the AFL cashes in on corporate tickets.

“It’s a slap in the face to loyal club members that corporate tickets worth thousands are already on sale.

“The Minister for Tourism and Major Events has powers within the Major Sporting Event Act to change how tickets are allocated for the AFL Grand Final.

“The Minister must step in and to make sure more club members can experience footy’s biggest day,” he said.
