The 2019 Grand Final ballot has now closed.


Do I get access to a GF ticket if Richmond Participates?

For the Grand Final, the number of tickets available for Club members to purchase is less than the total number of members we have. Richmond Football Club, in conjunction with the AFL, endeavour to provide a fair system for members wishing to purchase tickets.

Should we reach the Grand Final, depending on the level of membership purchased, some members are provided guaranteed access to purchase a ticket and these members are placed in Priority Group 1. While other members in Priority Group 2 & 3 have the opportunity to enter a ballot to purchase tickets.

Priority 1 – guaranteed: 2019 Premiership Circle - Great Southern Stand, Ponsford, Olympic (excluding Premiership Circle Provisional members), Maurice Rioli Club (Provisional, Tier 2, Tier 1) 3121, Club XI, Maurice Rioli Club, Richmond Executive, Legends, Jacks Club and Yellow & Black members.

Priority 2– ballot: All Platinum 25-49 years consecutive members

Priority 3 – ballot: All Gold 10-24 years consecutive members

If you do not fall into one of these priority groups, unfortunately you will not have access to purchasing a Grand Final ticket if Richmond Participates.

It is each member’s responsibility to ensure they have sufficient funds to cover the range of ticket prices in addition to the $5 non-refundable registration fee per barcode registered.
