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?

You had the Flower magic working for you.

Smooth as silk.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
