Cowboys CEO Jeff Reibel has issued a fresh warning today that 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 only way to secure a seat at the XXXX Derby on 2 July is via a single or multi game membership package at cowboys.com.au/membership.
“This match is the hottest ticket in North Queensland right now, with fans throughout Australia scrambling to get the last seats at a packed Queensland Country Bank Stadium,” Mr Reibel said.
“While we’re thrilled at this tremendous response, we're seeing a steep increase in the activities of unofficial ticket sellers targeting the club’s fans."
"With our XXXX derby ticket allocation likely to be exhausted any day now, our message is clear: anyone attempting to use tickets purchased through non-official vendors will likely be turned away at the gate," he said.
"Because these unscrupulous third-party ticket sellers appear readily in a Google Search, desperate fans may be duped into thinking their tickets are legitimate, until they're turned away from the gate on game day."
"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 we're pleading with people to not risk it.”
Cowboys v Broncos single game (Home Star) memberships start from $91 per person and multi game (Flexi 4) memberships start from $113 per person.
