There was a good chance you knew at least one person madly scrambling to get one of the remaining 10,250 AFL Grand Final tickets that went on sale yesterday, and an even better chance they were unsuccessful.

The ballot system encouraged prospective buyers to join the cue before 10am, at which time they were thrown intro a random order with more up to 180,000 others.

This came after Melbourne Demons and Western Bulldogs member ticket allocations sold out quickly on Monday and Tuesday respectively.

Yesterday’s final allocation sold out in just 9 minutes!

With the stadium’s full seating of 60,000 now completely sold out, attention has turned towards staffing the event following two finals weekends plagued by long bar and food lines.

According to the ABC, the stadium has urgently put out a call for 600 extra staff to help service a full house when the AFL Grand Final is played for the first time ever in Western Australia.

So if you missed out on tickets and are really desperate to get close to the action, this could be one way to get amongst it!

More to come.
