AFLW Round 8
Gold Coast SUNS vs Carlton Blues
Friday 19 March, 2021
Gates open: 3.00pm
First bounce: 4.10pm
GC SUNS home games look very different to past games at Metricon Stadium. As such, we require all attendees' cooperation to follow the health and safety advice from QLD Health and Metricon Stadium.
Upon redeeming a ticket, you accept the responsibility and risk of attending this game and agree to follow all venue staff directions. QLD Health has allowed all QLD Stadiums to reach a capacity of 100%, meaning there will be more attendees in the Stadium than during 2020. You will be sitting next to, behind, and in front of other people not from your household or purchase group.
It is strongly encouraged that all attendees wear masks to, from, and while at the game due to patrons' close proximity – please bring your own mask to the game. There will be hand sanitiser available at the Stadium; however, attendees must bring masks, gloves, or other PPE items, if they wish to. Patrons are encouraged to wash hands and sanitise regularly, as well as cough or sneeze into a tissue or their elbow. Please remember to observe social distancing where possible and, if not possible, to have your mask on.
Metricon Stadium Seating
All attendees have been allocated a specific seat via their ticket. Attendees must sit in the allocated seat as shown on their ticket. If there is an issue with your ticket, please let one of the usher staff know. Do not move seats without approval from Metricon Stadium staff.
There will be no spare seats between your group and the next group of ticket-holders. All patrons will be sitting next to, behind, and in front of each other within each section. Queensland Health has approved these COVIDsafe seating arrangements. Metricon Stadium will not relocate groups if you do not wish to sit next to someone else.
Please note: tickets in sections 201 – 228R are on Level 2 and are not accessible by a lift. If you or any of your guests have a mobility issue preventing them from using stairs, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org before arriving.
Your Ticket and Entry
Entry tickets will be sent directly to your mobile phone. Please ensure your mobile phone is charged to allow your tickets to scan on arrival at the Stadium. Your ticket shows the gate number you must enter through – your ticket will not scan at any other gate. Gates Open at 3.00 pm and will close at the start of the fourth quarter.
