Tickets purchased from unofficial sellers will not be accepted at the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys blockbuster clash against the Broncos in Townsville on 2 July, the club has warned.
Cowboys CEO Jeff Reibel said unofficial ticket sellers were actively targeting the club’s fans, with the hotly anticipated XXXX derby on track to sell out in record time.
“This match is the hottest ticket in North Queensland right now with fans throughout Australia scrambling to get the last seats,” Mr Reibel said.
“We’re expecting a packed house at Queensland Country Bank Stadium with tickets being snapped up weeks ahead of previous seasons’ sales,” he said.
“While we’re thrilled at this tremendous response, this demand has unfortunately created opportunity for unscrupulous third-party ticket sellers to target desperate buyers,” he said.
“Our message is clear: anyone attempting to use tickets purchased through non-official vendors, including popular online third-party ticket sellers, will likely be turned away at the gate.”
“Because these tickets can’t be authenticated, exchanged or refunded by the Cowboys, Ticketmaster or Stadiums Queensland, no refund or alternative will be offered, so just don’t risk it.”
The best remaining seats for Cowboys v Broncos can be secured via a Cowboys single or multi-game membership, starting from $91 per person.
Limited single seats are also available via Ticketmaster outlets.
