Tickets to Friday's State of Origin for Bushfire Relief double-header are nearly sold out.
Only a limited number of standing room tickets remain available through Ticketmaster, with those proceeds going to the AFL Community Relief Fund.And the bumper crowd is set to deliver even more support to fire-affected communities, with Zurich Life and Investments to donate $10 for every fan who attends the match, on top of the initial $2.5m donated by the AFL, the clubs and the AFL Players' Association.
If the crowd reaches 50,000 as forecast, an additional $500,000 would be donated.
"We're delighted to stand alongside the AFL, the AFL Players' Association and broader football family to get around the rebuild efforts of our bushfire-affected communities via the AFL Community Relief Fund," the CEO of Zurich Life and Investments, Justin Delaney, said.
"We've seen first-hand the role that footy clubs play in strengthening bonds within local communities and improving the wellbeing of club participants – the need for which will be even greater this football season.
"Our contribution – made possible by our charitable foundation – is made on behalf of our customers and employees, many of whom have been directly impacted by the fires."
The NAB AFL Women's clash between Collingwood and Melbourne will kick off at 5.40pm AEDT, while the State of Origin for Bushfire Relief match will start at 7.50pm AEDT.
Tickets for juniors and children will be free of charge and Ticketmaster will also waive all transaction fees in support of the event.
