Accessible tickets not showing up to purchase on Ticketmaster?

If accessible tickets (Wheelchair, Ambulant, Deaf / Hard of Hearing and Companion) are not showing up as an option to purchase on Ticketmaster, this means unfortunately they have sold out therefore unavailable to buy.


What if I require an essential companion?

There is an option to select a companion ticket when you are purchasing an accessible ticket. Once you have selected a companion ticket, there will be an approval process. For the approval process, you will be contacted to provide supporting documentation for validation of your request.

If your request for an essential companion ticket is not approved, the access team can advise on the procedure.
