The AFL will be running a ticketing data trial for two of the games in Melbourne for this round. The aim of the trial would be for Victoria to reach 100% capacity at games.
When purchasing tickets the AFL will require each person attending the match to provide their name and contact details.
By doing this it will assist the Victorian Government with contract tracing and in the event of an outbreak at a game, the Government will be able to contact everyone much quicker.
If the trial is successful it will help the AFL’s case in pushing for 100% capacity at all Melbourne games across both the MCG and Marvel.
The two games that the data trail will take place at are:
Western Bulldogs vs. Gold Coast – 4:35PM Saturday April 17 (Marvel Stadium)
Carlton vs. Port Adelaide – 7:25PM Saturday April 17 (MCG)

AFL Executive General Manager Commercial and Customer Kylie Rogers thanked fans for their understanding so far this season and share in their enthusiasm to return to full capacity.
“We empathise that fans have had to change the way they may ordinarily purchase tickets and attend matches as we continue to navigate the pandemic and modify our behaviours,” Ms Rogers said.
“Encouragingly the data shows fans have quickly adopted the digital ticketing process, and we thank them for embracing the required change.
“The trial this week will assist us in getting back to 100% capacity as soon as possible and eventually seeing members get back to their beloved reserved seats in stadium.”
