AFL Community Support Ticketing Program

The Australian Football League (AFL) receives many requests to assist with ticketing from a wide range of community groups including schools, junior football clubs, youth & church groups and formal organisations supporting specific disadvantaged or disability groups.
The AFL recognises it has a corporate responsibility to the broader community and therefore provides community groups with access to ticketing through the AFL Community Support Ticketing Program. The program offers groups up to 40 complimentary tickets (subject to approval and availability) for one of the selected matches at the MCG listed below.
