Cheer on the Melbourne Storm in their fourth consecutive NRL Preliminary Final, this time against 2016 Premiers the Cronulla Sharks. There will be plenty of reasons to celebrate, with this being Billy Slater and Ryan Hoffman's last games in Melbourne and your last chance to see the Melbourne Storm in action at AAMI Park for 2018.

Tickets on sale from Monday September 17 via Ticketek Australia.


With multiple events on in the precinct, including an AFL Preliminary Final at the MCG, parking at Melbourne Park is SOLD OUT, while Yarra Park at the MCG is closed. No drive up parking will be available on the day. We strongly encourage all guests to use public transport to get to AAMI Park, and to arrive early to avoid disappointment.

Disabled parking is limited and likely to sell out quickly. Please call the Melbourne & Olympic Parks Accessibility Line to book parking on 03 9286 1208. Guests who do not pre-book a spot are not guaranteed parking on arrival.


All guests will be subject to ticket checks, wanding and bag search prior to entering AAMI Park. See below our top tips for ensuring a smooth entry into the venue:

  • Please arrive at the stadium early. We recommend aiming to arrive at least one hour prior to kick off to allow plenty of time to clear security, grab something to eat and drink and find your seat. Gates will be open from 5pm, with an NRLW curtain raiser kicking off at 5.15pm.
  • Limit the number of items brought into the venue. This speeds up security checks as guests without a bag can go straight through to wanding.
  • If you're using a mobile ticket, please have the ticket loaded on your screen and the brightness turned up to avoid delays at the turnstiles.

Only tickets purchased from our official ticketing partner; Ticketek, are valid for this event. Tickets purchased through any other sources may not be valid and you may not be admitted into the Stadium.
