Chaos has broken out at the AFL and NRL finals because tens of thousands of fans couldn’t buy tickets because the Ticketek website crashed.
Recent Released: Which Cinema celebrate Cinema Day?
Tickets for the two NRL semifinals, the AFL preliminary finals, and the upcoming tour by country singer Luke Combs went on sale at 10 a.m. on Monday. Because of the high demand, many fans were locked out after waiting for hours on the site.
When customers kept getting sent to an error page, they vented their anger on social media.
What Fans Share On Twitter Social Media – Ticketek
Hey @Ticketek_AU you owe league fans an apology for your disgraceful performance today. How long do we have to wait for you to be ready? People have jobs you know. Just atrocious.— The Cumberland Throw (@EelsTCT) September 12, 2022
Ticketek choosing to release Luke Combs, AFL and NRL finals tickets all at once is an absolute shambles— Anthony (@gc_anthony) September 12, 2022
Ah spring. The annual Australian festival of “Ticketek Crashed”. Celebrated mostly in the southern states but with added interest from NSW and QLD in 2022.— John Donegan (@John__Donegan) September 12, 2022
Getting through ticketek is easily my biggest ever achievement— King Poults (@Daicosian) September 12, 2022
Seems @ticketek_AU weren’t expecting to sell any AFL Finals tickets again this year. Getting a 503 unavailable error. Some things never change @AFL— illiards (@illiards) September 12, 2022
Tickets for the AFL preliminary final between Sydney and Collingwood on Saturday have already sold out. On Thursday, more tickets will be made available.
All of the tickets for fans of the four teams playing in the NRL semifinals this week have also been sold out.
Even with all the drama, all four games are expected to have huge crowds.
