The Victorian government has stated that AFL finals and the 2019 ANZAC Day match will come under its strict anti-scalping laws.
Finals games played in Victoria, along with next year’s ANZAC Day clash have been slated as major events, meaning it will be illegal indefinitely for people to re-sell their tickets for more than 10 percent of their value.
Prior to this declaration, the AFL grand final was the only game subject to the law.
“We’re putting fans first – these laws deter unscrupulous scalpers and make sure fans can watch their teams play in the biggest games,” acting Major Events Minister Philip Dalidakis said in a statement on Friday.
Ticket officers will work along police to pin down those breaking these laws. Those caught will face fines of $806 to $483,500.
