As soon as Premier Steven Marshall announced that this weekend’s Showdown will go ahead in front of fans, almost everybody started wondering how they could get their hands on a ticket.

With only 2,000 tickets being made available, however, it’s going to be slim pickings for most footy fans.

Saturday’s Showdown is scheduled as a Port Adelaide home game, meaning that the majority of tickets will be made available to Port fans.

Port members will have access to 1,475 tickets, with 475 going to Crows members and a further 50 in the hands of Adelaide Oval members.

However, you’re going to need luck on your side, with both clubs likely to announce a ballot for 11-game members.

It’s expected that those wanting to attend will need to register their interest online, with the lucky names randomly selected.

The showdown will be the first AFL game for 2020 to be held in front of a crowd of any size, however, those attending will have to adhere to strict social distancing rules.


Fans in the stands will be seated in every third seat, and every alternate row with fans split around the entirety of the ground.

Fans will also be disallowed from touching footballs as an extra precaution to players.

Members of both teams are expected to receive more details on the ballot today.
