AFL scalpers in crosshairs

Sunshine Coast Daily - - NATION -

VIC­TO­RIAN-BASED AFL fi­nals will for the first time be tar­geted by tough new an­ti­s­calp­ing laws.

The fi­nals games as well as next year’s An­zac Day clash have been de­clared ma­jor events, mak­ing it il­le­gal for peo­ple to re-sell tick­ets for more than 10 per cent of face value. Pre­vi­ously, only the AFL grand fi­nal was 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.
