Get Ready

Boasting the largest medal event program and the most number of sessions in Games’ history, GC2018 presents spectators with a wide variety of sports, venues and experiences to choose from.

In order to make it fair for everyone, tickets will initially be available via a Ticket Request phase. Ticket requests will be accumulated over a four-week period. No orders will be confirmed or payments taken until after the Ticket Request phase closes.

You can place a ticket request at any time during this phase, no preference will be given to the time of day or date a ticket request is placed.

About Ticket Requests

In order to make it fair for everyone, tickets will initially be available via a Ticket Request phase.

Ticket requests will be accumulated over a four-week period from midday on 24 April and close at 11:59pm on 22 May 2017 (AEST), and no orders will be confirmed or payments taken until after the Ticket Request phase closes.

You can place a ticket request at any time, no preference will be given to the time of day or date a ticket request is placed.

During this phase a roll-down service will be offered whereby customers can indicate in advance whether to accept a lower price category in their selected session, if unsuccessful in their initial price category request.

Any sessions that have more ticket requests than there is availability will have tickets awarded via a fair and equal draw. The fair and equal draw is made by computer and processed randomly.

Placing a ticket request does not guarantee success, it does provide you with the best chance to secure tickets for the most in-demand sports and sessions.

We accept all major credit and debit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club and American Express).

We are not able to accept payments by Cheque, PayPal or other payment methods.

Official Purchase Channels

All Australian residents and residents from non-Commonwealth countries can apply for tickets online once the ticket request phase opens at midday on Monday 24 April, 2017 (AEST).

If you are a resident of a Commonwealth nation or territory outside of Australia, please select your country to make a ticket request.

Accessible seating

GC2018’s vision to deliver an inclusive Games also stretches further than the sporting arena and people with an accessible requirement will be provided with appropriate access at all competition venues.

For sports sessions, accessible seating tickets will be charged at the lowest price category within each session.

For those spectators requiring a companion (a person who is essential for assistance), a ticket will be provided at no additional cost.

GC2018 will cater for a large number of people with accessible needs. However, it is recommended to request these tickets as early as possible to ensure availability.

For more details, please read our Accessible Ticketing Policy.

Roll Down

To increase your chances of obtaining tickets during the Ticket Request phase, a roll-down service will be offered whereby customers can indicate whether to accept a lower price category in their selected session, if unsuccessful in their initial price category request.

For example, if you choose only Category A and your request cannot be fulfilled you will receive no tickets. If you choose the ‘Category A or lower’ tickets, you have a chance in all price categories for that session until a time you are either awarded tickets for that session or availability is exhausted.

Hospitality

GC2018 will have a range of hospitality packages on offer. To register your interest please contact us.
