From twitter...
To get your finals tickets members can call 136100 from 12pm today til 5pm tomorrow. You will need to quote the bar code on your ticket.

For those of you trying to input barcodes, I assume you mean those on your members tickets? Also, which site are you using? Proticket? Because when I went there I could find no trace of the Sixers-Breakers semi-final!

Very frustrating that the ticket agencies aren't ready to go on this. My recollection of last year was that I logged into Proticket and secured my usual seats no problem! Why didn't they just repeat that process?

The real issue is the members were not emailed an information page which has suddenly appeared around 10 minutes ago in our in oxea with info that explains

Ticketmaster

Family tickets must ring to activate

First 12 numbers of barcode not all of it which is why it is failing

And ticketmaster staff had no clue either

No to mention waiting 25 mjnutes on ticketmaster line only to then be put in another line for Sixers member issues !!!! Furious and now a huge phone bill too..

Once again the Sixers office not doing the job properly of keeping members informed..

Uwe and Grovermister, thanks for the tips. I didn't realise the Sixers were now using Ticketmaster, but once I had that info, plus the 12 digit info it was pretty smooth sailing using the Ticketmaster site.

To be fair to the Sixers admin, I did get an email from them telling me what to do about 1:30pm and have since received a phone call from a nice lady to check if I knew how to purchase the tickets!

Pretty poor that they changed ticketing company for this specific game, but didn't seem to announce it at all. Something as important as ticketing for a playoff game, you'd think would have been set up ages ago. Then just activated if needed.
An email at 1:30, when they were supposed to go on sale at 12 really isn't good enough.
Oh well, I still have to wait til Wednesday.

Yep, more of the same. You'd think it wouldn't be that hard to sort the issues ahead of time and provide the full information well before it was actually needed.

Not many seasons ago we were able to provide authorisation for finals seat costs to be charged to our credit cards well ahead of time - on the understanding that we would want to attend all finals games, I guess.

That worked fine for me & would be far preferable to this mess.

Of course, that system would mean the booking agency would get its exorbitant 'booking fee' only once, I presume [or would hope].

I too have been thinking of driving out to the stadium, but its a 90 minute round trip, and if they are using the same web site ...

Will try the new 12-digit option and see what happens. Looks like accessing the 25% discount isn't an option on the web though. Another oversight.

It's really not that hard to 'workshop' these mechanisms and scenarios and iron out at least most of the bugs ahead of time, is it?

Think you will find that the changes to credit information has forces the changes, companies are no longer allowed to keep credit card information on hand to re charge. the laws changed on that about July 13 by memory. Not saying anyone did it at sixers just holding cc info can lead to fraud plus companies automatically charging for goods or services that you do not wish for and haven't authorised.

I tried the online system but lost confidence when it talked about "printing my tickets" and allocating seats in "GA0002" when I understood that our existing Season Tickets would be activated for the game and our seats are in G4 (according to an old Adelaide Arena floor plan).

It took 45 minutes but I eventually completed the transaction on the phone, with the appropriate assurances that everything was in order. Hopefully, this will be confirmed on Saturday!

I guess the online system is too generic to provide information that is specific to this event.

Cant blame the agency for the following
No link on the Web site
Old Link on the website goes to proticket
The infamous email not being sent to members
Not answering the office phone

May as well have take phone bookings in the office and had your member lists marked off as you paid as apparently the ticket agency will just let the Sixer office know when a family ticket is paid for and they will mark off the other family members. That is what i was told. My 2 other kids I had to pay for seperately so ticket agency fees x 2. So no family discount as it is gobbled up in double cost and phone calls and 3 hours wages lost sortingg it out with an agency who had no clue how to deal with a simple family ticket for a member .. Rubbish..

Ripped off and pissed off and I better not have issues on Saturday.

The 12-digit number/s worked for me, but then I hit the 'print' option - which I don't want, and a demand for a password I don't have [and no, I DON'T want an account with the ticketing agency!] and gave up.

Will try the phone again tomorrow, unless I decide to give in and create an account, and so get a password, but it's increasingly looking like a 90-minute round trip to the 'arena'. That way I might get the promised 25% discount, but at this rate the time and other costs will far outweigh that.

Frustrating and messy.

And as for the costs - I realise the agency is a business, and don't mind paying reasonable fees, but they're hitting us up for the credit card transaction plus the supposed 'handling fees', even though there's no handling of any sort.

There's not even a system that works efficiently!

Complicated. Obscure. Costly. Messy. Frustrating. Confidence and enthusiasm-sapping.

If you were into marketing and customer/member satisfaction shouldn't that be: Simple. Clear. Good value and Reassuring?

'Family' ticket members have to ring up Ticketmaster. I have been trying to do so for over half an hour. The phone line is engaged. ENGAGED! What half-assed sort of operation are those morons running at Ticketmaster, and what the hell are we paying them exorbitant booking fees for? This is before I even get the privilege to languish on hold for three quarters of an hour once I do get through.

This is a joke. Dean, sack Ticketmaster immediately, they do not deserve a cent of our money, and are certainly wasting my time.

Also system did not recognise by fathers concession so paying more for that, not a big issue but speaks to the nature of the system.

Eventually gave up and opted for the web. After repeated tries the system actually accepted my information - needed to establish an 'account' which was a task in itself.

Got confirmation of the booking, which said reserved. Subsequently got a message saying I was going to get printed tickets and presented the bookings as general admission, which is at odds with the info/advice from the 36ERS.

Could be just that the booking system hasn't been configured to deal with the situation, but if they can't handle it the company shouldn't have tendered for the job,should it?

Very messy and frustrating,verging on chaos.

So it won't let me purchase them.

I phoned Ticketmaster yesterday but cancelled the purchase as my 25% off was not recorded in their database.
Seems like they didn't cancel the purchase properly.

For those who haven't received confirmation emails, they should come within 72 hours according to the woman I spoke to today.
With all the problems and no confirmation email I thought I should ring and check the booking was successful. I was told they are still having problems. This is insane. How can it take 72 hours for a computer system to send a confirmation email?
It does make me wonder though whether they have these issues with every event or just with basketball games, and if so why that is. Last year was a mess also.

Have received [personal] email confirmation from 36ERS admin that despite the mixed messages from the booking agency our season tickets will gain entry & access to our regular seats for Saturday.

Can only trust that's the case.

Also, carpark pass still current/will gain access to parking.

Do spare a thought for the 36ERS admin. guys & girls. While I suspect they didn't actually have everything locked in early enough, it increasingly seems like they are 'trapped' here along with all us 'punters'.

Tickets went on sale to the public at 9am. By 9:03 I had managed to get four Gold seats in what looks like a decent position (if their seat numbers are what we're used to at the Arena).

I pre-registered at the site and put a card on file just in case the site was overloaded.

A lot less painful than what was experienced by members from the sounds of things.

The only good thing about the email is the option to complete a customer survey.

Will do that and it won't be pretty but assume it will be ignored.

Time for members to write to the Arena management and scouts sa to let them know they need to reconsider this agency's contract.
