The Plus500 Brumbies have welcomed the decision from the ACT Government to double the capacity at GIO Stadium for next Saturday night's Vodafone Super Rugby AU Grand Final.
ACT Chief Health Officer Dr Kerryn Coleman made the decision this morning to allow 25% capacity at the stadium, resulting in 6000 spectators plus corporate hospitality.
Next weekend's decider will be the first Super Rugby Grand Final in Canberra for 16 years.
The second round of member ticketing is also available from today after Platinum and Gold members gained access to their tickets from 10am yesterday with the first allocation of 1,500 tickets sapped up within minutes. Silver and GA members will be able to access theirs from 10am Today.
Non-season-ticketed members and registered Community players will have the next opportunity to purchase tickets from Friday morning.
Those who have signed up to the Grand Final ticketing waitlist will be able to access seating from next Monday, September 14 should any remain.
If any availability remains beyond this, General Public will be able to access tickets from next Tuesday, September 15.
Plus500 Brumbies CEO Phil Thomson said: “The Plus500 Brumbies would like to thank the ACT Government and the Chief Health Officer for this morning's decision."
"It's very rare to be able to host a Grand Final and to allow as many people from our region to be there and be a part of it next Saturday night is something we're really excited about."
