FAQ

The Gabba is a Ticketmaster venue and as such, tickets to Lions matches at the Gabba are purchased through Ticketmaster. Choose your seat and price level using the colour codes on the map and section explanations.

General Admission (GA) – this seating is the most affordable, and an ideal option for those who want to be up close to the action on ground level behind the goals and around the perimeter of the field. You can choose your own seat/s within the GA sections upon arrival based on a “first come, first served” basis.

Standard – this allocated seating is the next rung up on the experience scale and best for those who want to be close to the action and down-the-ground view of the match.

Prime – this allocated seating is similar to Standard, but provides an elevated view of the action.

Premium – this allocated seating is best for those who want an elevated, more side-on view of the game than Prime and Standard.

Mid Tier – this is one of our Area VIP seating options, giving spectators an elevated view from behind the goals around to the 50 metre line.  Your seat also gives you access to the Area VIP Lounge.

Centre Wing – this is also one of our Area VIP Seating options, giving spectators an elevated view from right on Centre Wing in front of the Coach’s Boxes.  Your seat also gives you access to the Area VIP Lounge.
