Event ticket resale South Australia

The safest way to buy event tickets is through the authorised ticketing agencies for the event.

From 10 December 2018 it will be illegal to sell a ticket to a sporting or entertainment event in SA at a price that is more than 110% of the original supply cost of the ticket – this applies to tickets with a re-sale restriction

Tickets can be resold providing:

  • the ticket terms and conditions allow for re-sale
  • the price is not more than 110% of the original ticket price
  • the advertising requirements outlined below are met.

The seller can’t accept a price that is more than 110% of the original supply cost, even if potential buyers offer a higher amount. The buyer also risks their ticket being cancelled by the venue if they pay a higher price.

You can report an advertisement where the asking price is too high to the ticketing website by sending them an email. They must remove any advertisement that is illegal.

ADVERTISING REQUIREMENTS

Any ticket re-sale advertisement must include:

  • the original supply cost
  • details of the allocated location to view the event – eg bay, row or seat number of the ticket.

It will be illegal for an advertising publication – eg website, newspaper or magazine – to publish an advertisement to sell tickets for an amount that is more than 110% of the original supply cost of the ticket.
