TICKETING: Rd 08 vs Sydney


jnrmac

Recommended Posts

The farce that is Ticketek has been failing for the past 2.5 hours. It is a shocking clunky system when it works. And that is rarely

Can't get any tickets for the Swans Dees game. Have tried only to be booted out at the last point after inputing all details for 10 tickets. Names, phone numbers, member numbers, credit card details.

Its a freaking joke

Every week there is some glitch. Ticketek needs to be shunted.

2.5 hours of my life I won't get back and I can't get tickets.

Anyone that is wondering why crowds are down this is a big part of it.

Its a absolute disgrace.  Ended up with seperate seats for my son and I on level 3 MCC as the system seemed upable to cope with buying more than 1 ticket at a time.  Hopefully we can shuffle this around on the day as as we can sit next to each other.

Its time the Government let a return to normal ticketing proceedures.

I got tickets eventually, after about half an hour of trying and with eight or nine failed attempts. Absolutely hopeless...

Fortunately, the seats I did get were pretty good (M46 just undercover)...

I was kicked off 3 times had to re-input all the info got kicked off again didn't know if tickets were processed Had to re -input to see that the tickets were processed

Surely there are better systems available or they should rewrite the software

Its a Joke!

MCC tickets 'no longer on sale' Grrr

Spent 2 hours getting kicked out of the Ticketek website at the final step. I eventually gave up. They have suspended MCC ticket sales until the problem is fixed. It’s bloody hopeless. 
 

I spoke to the MCC, who assured me the seats are not sold out, but the sales were suspended until they rectified the problems. 
 

As others note, this is sole reason that crowd attendance is down this year. People do not have the patience to engage a flawed system. If you aren’t tech savvy, it’d be even more of a nightmare.

I don't understand why Ticketek doesn't stagger the ticket releases so that their servers aren't hammered quite so much...

Anyway, sales resume at 3PM...

In defence of Ticketek, I logged on at about 10.00am, "bought" my three MCC Reserve seats and logged out. Smooth transaction, took about 60 seconds from start to finish.

Whats the secret? I logged on at 905 and didnt get tickets until 10.10

I had the same issue multiple trying to process a standard CC payment.  I think the CC Gateway is getting slammed and can't handle the traffic (i reckon the $$ they would make to fix the issue is probably less than the money they would make by fixing it sadly).  I changed my payment method to Clicktopay and it worked first time (before 10am this morning)

Really ? Great for you, but judging by social media backlash and the fact that they suspended sales, you are in the minority. It’s a joke of a system

In early rounds, I had the experience of completing my order and being kicked off, but it was because I wasn't putting in the number of seats for each MCC member for whom I was buying tickets (myself and siblings). But for the last two or three rounds, buying my seats has been a breeze. With regard to your delay today, maybe I just got lucky and logged in at a time when the system was working?

Of course you did.

You had the Flower magic working for you.

Smooth as silk.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
