The tickets which are purchased on this site are from a third party; TicketChoice is not the ticket seller. Ticket prices are set by the seller and may differ from face value. ALL SALES ARE FINAL unless mutually agreed upon by both the seller and buyer. The seller does not have to issue a refund, transaction cancellations or exchange for date/time changes or partial performances. Cancelled events will be handled on a case by case basis by both the seller and buyer. All prices listed on TicketChoice are in AUD.
TicketChoice is a site which promotes the sale of tickets by the public, to the public. However, the resale of tickets to events such as music concerts, theatre, family events and sport can often be regulated by the ticket issuer. It is your responsibility as the ticket seller to ensure that your particular transaction does not violate any applicable law or the terms of the ticket itself. TicketChoice recommends prior to buying or selling these types of items members should contact the ticket issuer and ensure the resale is permitted.
The Victorian Minister for Sport and Recreation has declared some events as “declared events” under the Sports Event Ticketing (Fair Access) Act 2002 (Vic). Examples of declared events include the Australian Football League Grand Final and the 2007 World Swimming Championships. This legislation deems the conditions on tickets to such events as valid and enforceable. Those conditions include the requirement that these tickets must not be re-sold above their face value.
Tickets for declared events must be listed at the face value of the tickets.
Queensland legislation makes it unlawful for a seller to sell or offer for sale tickets to some events held in Queensland at a price greater than 10% above the original ticket price for the ticket.
If you are selling a ticket to a national or international sport, recreational or entertainment event, or special event that is staged at a facility that the Queensland Government has declared to be a major sports facility, you must not, within or outside Queensland, resell (this includes offer for sale) the ticket at a price greater than 10% above the original price of the ticket. For more information, please see Part 4A of the Major Sports Facilities Act 2001.
The Queensland Government has declared each of the following to be a major sports facility: Brisbane Cricket Ground, Brisbane Entertainment Centre, Queen Elizabeth II Complex, Sleeman Sports Centre, Suncorp Stadium and Willows Sports Complex (see the Major Sports Facilities Regulation 2002).
If you are selling a ticket that is subject to the above law, you must not sell them at a price which is greater than 10% above the original price of the ticket. However, please also read the TicketChoice warning below about terms and conditions that the organiser of an event and/or the original ticketing agent may have specified on a ticket before you decide whether it is lawful for you to do this.
If you have any questions regarding your rights to sell a ticket, we strongly recommend that you contact the company that issued the ticket and/or consult with a lawyer.
