Great news for Plus500 Brumbies members this week as the ACT Chief Health Officer announced that GIO Stadium can now accommodate crowds up to 65% of full capacity.
Under this model, members will be allowed to access their specific reserved seating, rather than just a Bay and Row number as became the case for the Super Rugby AU competition in 2020 due to the COVID restrictions.
For members this means that every renewing member is guaranteed the opportunity to renew their same reserved seat for every home game of both the Super Rugby AU and the Super Rugby Trans-Tasman season, provided capacity remains at or above 65%.
Members will be able to arrive at GIO Stadium, scan their digital membership card (or physical card for those who request one) and proceed to sit in their normal seat as they would have before social distancing restrictions were put in place.
Should capacity restrictions be reduced back down below 65%, members will be contacted about alternative processes for accessing your seating. New members will also be able to select a specific reserved seat for both competitions.
Plus500 Brumbies CEO, Phil Thomson said: “It’s the news that we, like so many of our members have been waiting on."
“We know how important it is for our members to enjoy their game day experience from the seat they’ve become accustomed to over many years of supporting the club, and we’re delighted they will again have the opportunity to take up that seat in 2021."
As per previous seasons, general admission members are free to arrive on game day and sit in any seat they would like from the available general admission bays.
Part season general admission members will be able to do the same.
As always, General Admission seating is subject to capacity, with the total capacity of GIO Stadium currently limited to 65%.
Four game reserved seat members will again need to select their games and seat through their membership accounts.
For families with children under the age of 5, these children will currently still require a ticket to enter the stadium and the membership team will send out further communication on how to facilitate this.
Members are to still be mindful of others and the recommendations and restrictions put in place by the ACT Chief Health Officer which are subject to change at any time.
The Brumbies first home game is against the Waratahs on Saturday 27 February.
