It's official - Ballarat's AFL game on Sunday will be the first match at Mars Stadium to ever sell out.
The Western Bulldogs announced on Tuesday afternoon that all tickets had been exhausted and there would be no walk-up tickets on the day.
This includes members who have not already pre-booked their tickets.
Ballarat is officially a sell out!— Western Bulldogs (@westernbulldogs) August 20, 2019
No further tickets will be released for sale & no general admission membership scans will be available.
We can’t wait for Sunday 👊
"It's exciting to have the level of interest in our Ballarat fixture and to have sold all tickets a few days in advance of the game," said Bulldogs' CEO Ameet Bains.
"Given what is at stake for both teams, there was heightened interest from our members and fans, and the Ballarat community, to make sure they booked their ticket for Sunday's game.
"In anticipation of a large crowd and the understanding that Mars Stadium has a capacity of less than 12,000, the Club put a number of measures in place to ensure our members were able to guarantee their access at the game.
"It will be great to see Mars Stadium packed with Bulldogs fans on Sunday to cheer the players on."
The crucial match between Western and Adelaide is one of the most important of the AFL season.
All eyes in the world of the AFL will turn to our city for the highly-anticipated match.
For the Bulldogs, the equation is simple - win the game and book your ticket to September.
For the Crows, the task is a little more complicated. They need to win by about 30 points, and hope Port Adelaide or Hawthorn don't also win by a large amount.
Get excited, Ballarat. This is going to be huge!
