Event and Hospitality Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions (T&Cs) apply to the purchase of a seasonal corporate hospitality package (Season Package), tickets to a single event (Casual Pass) and attendance at an event hosted by the Adelaide Football Club Ltd ACN 008 101 568 (Club). By purchasing any Season Package or Casual Pass, or registering for and/or attending an event hosted by the Club or sold by the Club on behalf of a third party, you are deemed to accept these T&Cs. If you do not accept or comply with these T&Cs, your attendance at the event(s) may be prohibited. If you are booking on behalf of other attendees (including guests) you should direct them to these T&Cs.
Prices and payment
- Each Booking Form that you submit will constitute a separate agreement between you and the Club on the terms set out in these T&Cs (Booking). To the extent of any inconsistency between these T&Cs and the contents of any Booking Form, these T&Cs will prevail.
- You must pay the Club the amount specified as the 'Total Cost' for each Season Package and/or Casual Pass (as the case may be) in the relevant Booking Form. All prices are inclusive of GST.
- Payment can be made by credit or debit card by Visa, Mastercard or American Express (subject to a 3% surcharge for American Express only). Payment is required in full at the time of booking, except for Season Packages which may be paid by four instalments on the dates provided in a Booking Form, by way of direct debit from the card nominated by you. Each instalment will incur a 2% administration fee. If payment of an instalment is declined for any reason, you must contact the Club immediately and arrange for payment of the relevant instalment within 5 days of the date that payment was due. If payment is not received during this time, the Club reserves the right in its absolute discretion to suspend any Season Package until payment has been received in full, and you acknowledge and agree that tickets to any events scheduled during the period of suspension will be forfeited.
- No Season Package or Casual Pass (as the case may be) is confirmed until full payment has been received by the Club. The Club is not required to issue tickets to any event or provide any other services (including access to the event) to you unless and until payment for the Booking has been received in full.
- Where applicable, tickets to an event will be issued no later than seven (7) days prior to the scheduled event.
Limits of the number of Casual Passes that can be purchased for any event may apply at the discretion of the Club. If you exceed the ticket limit, any or all of your orders and tickets may be cancelled without notice by the Club in its discretion. This includes orders associated with the same name, e-mail address, billing address, credit card number or other information.
The Club reserves the right to alter the event program for any Season Package or Casual Pass as advertised at any time without prior notice, including the date, venue, seating arrangements, audience capacity, entertainment and/or activities. Every effort will be made to offer a program of equivalent standard. If the date, time or venue of an event is rescheduled or changed, your ticket will remain valid for the rescheduled date, venue and time (subject to any revised quote provided under paragraph 4.2).
- By you: Purchases of Season Packages or Casual Passes are non-refundable and cannot be cancelled by you after purchase.
- By the Club: The Club may cancel part or all of an event (in its absolute discretion) without notice, including if an event outside the Club's reasonable control occurs including fire, storm, flood, earthquake, explosion, war, invasion, rebellion, sabotage, epidemic, labour dispute, labour shortage, failure or delay in transportation and act or omission of any third person (including subcontractors, customers, governments or government agencies). The Club will use its best endeavours to reschedule any event that is cancelled by it for reasons outside of its reasonable control, however, you acknowledge and agree that:
- the price of Season Packages and Casual Passes are determined by specific event dates and venues; and
if the cost of the rescheduled event materially increases, the Club may in its absolute discretion provide a revised quote for the Booking, payment of which is required for the purposes of guaranteeing your tickets for the rescheduled event.
If the Club cancels an event at its convenience or for a reason other than those set out in paragraph 4.2, subject to you providing the original ticket(s) and proof of purchase, you will be eligible for a refund of all or a portion of the cost of the Season Package or Casual Pass that relates to the unsupplied event (the amount to be determined in the Club's absolute discretion) exclusive of delivery or mail fees and/or any processing surcharge (if applicable).
The Club reserves the right not to refund, exchange or substitute tickets after purchase nor replace tickets that may have been stolen, lost or destroyed, except as required by law.
