Broncos and Cowboys tickets to be available on November 9
BUNDABERG Rugby League Association president Mike Ireland has confirmed ticket prices for the much-anticipated trial match between North Queensland Cowboys and the Brisbane Broncos will start from $40.
There will be four seating categories available with general admission tickets starting from $40 and premium seating available for $90.
Ireland said at this stage there would only be 607 premium seat tickets available.
He said the association was still ironing out details regarding how many general admission ticket holders could fit safely into Salter Oval.
Further information regarding how to purchase tickets, pricing and seating will be available closer to November 9.
THE Bundaberg Rugby League Association has revealed tickets for the highly anticipated match between the Brisbane Broncos and North Queensland Cowboys will be available on November 9 to the public.
Despite nothing being confirmed, in terms of prices and how many will be available, tickets will be available to the public on that Monday for the Grand Final replay on February 6.
Most will be available to be purchased online with details still limited on how they will be available at Salter Oval.
President of the association Mike Ireland says the aim is to make sure everything is right in the running of the event.
"There's still a lot of work to be put in to make sure the event is run smoothly," Ireland said.
"We want to let people know though that the tickets will be available on November 9."
The association wants everything to be almost finalised, in terms of capacity and prices, before the general meeting to be held by them on November 7.
They conceded there could be a problem with the permanent grandstand as well with just 807 seats available.
With the association looking to seat guests, and local clubs in the competition in the grandstand, there could be very few available to the general public.
"Grandstand seating will be limited unfortunately due to the actual numbers in the stand," Ireland said.
"They will also be more expensive than normal ticket prices because they will be actually be reserved to those who purchase the seat."
With around 3000 more seats to be installed before the event, the association said there will be other areas where patrons can sit if they miss out.
Finally the BRL also confirmed two other matches will be played during the day in the lead-up to the event.
All four teams have been confirmed, by the association, but no details will be released on who is playing until next week when ticket prices and details are released.
The association are currently in negotiations as well with local ticketing agencies to organise, sell, and book out Salter Oval for the trial match.
"At the end of the day, we want to make sure the event is run well, and everyone is happy when they are at the game," Ireland said.
"Our aim is to do a good job so we can attract a future NRL match to the region."
