2021/22 NTFL members - See here for more information, as entry is dependent on your membership type. 

As AFLNT does not charge a registration fee for players we charge at the gate to recoup some of the money the organisation spends putting on games. This gate money goes towards insurance, umpires, lights, line marking, casual staff, security and so on.  It does not fully cover all our costs and the NTFL season runs at a loss.

Where can I buy a membership?

One of the most cost-effective ways to fill your wet season weekends with awesome footy action! 

There are two kinds of membership for the 2021/22 season; a pass that grants access to TIO Stadium and a Premium Access Pass which covers all grounds, and ensures clubs running home venues are compensated for your entry.

See more and sign-up via our memberships page 

How do I enter TIO Stadium?

The only entry to TIO Stadium during the home and away rounds of the 2021/22 TIO NTFL season is via the Bonson Gate (airport end) of the ground. 

The gate opens 90 minutes before the first game. 

Patrons are encouraged to use the Territory Check In App or fill in a COVID compliance form for contact tracing before entering the gate. 

You can fill in the form just before you get to the gate online and then show the confirmation screen. The form is HERE.

Members are not required to fill in a form provided they scan their card at entry. 

The COVID-19 spectator protocols are easy to follow, and everyone's cooperation is appreciated:

  1. Download the Territory Check In and COVIDSafe app - ensure the app is installed so we can trace and report any cases.
  2. Social distancing applies - maintain 1.5 metres distance at all times and follow any signs and markings around the venue.
  3. Practise good hygiene - stop the spread of germs. Wash your hands, cover your mouth when coughing/sneezing and bin your rubbish.
  4. No congregating at team huddles - do not go near the team huddles during the breaks.
  5. No access to changerooms or club rooms - these are off-limits and only for players and officials.
  6. Respect our officials and volunteers - respect the instructions given by officials. The protocols are in place to keep everyone safe and footy in play.

The public bar at TIO Stadium is on Level 2 behind the grandstand and will open at midday or 30 minutes before the first senior game, whichever is later. 

The canteen at TIO Stadium is on Level 2 behind the grandstand and is generally open 30 minutes before the first game of the day and will close just after three-quarter-time of the last game at TIO Stadium. 

EFTPOS facilities are available at all three locations.

How do I enter TIO Stadium?

Patrons wishing to use a BasicsCard can do so to gain entry/tickets to TIO Stadium (does not allow the purchase of memberships) and to buy food and drinks (non-alcoholic) from the canteen on Level 2.

  • Level 2 (Maurice Rioli Grandstand)
  • Level 3 (corporate guests only)
  • General admin (behind the Family Friendly Area and behind TIO Stadium scoreboard)

Is there disabled access at TIO Stadium?

Disabled access is via a lift near the TIO Stadium office (Bonson Gate entry) and seating with extra space is along the last row in the Maurice Rioli Grandstand. 

What can I do in the case of an medical emergency or anti-social behaviour at TIO Stadium?

In the event of a medical emergency please flag down the closest staff member (in NTFL yellow or grey tops) who will be able to get the attention of the onsite St John Ambulance crew.

Anti-social behaviour and breaches of the Conditions of Entry are looked upon poorly by AFLNT officials. 

Members of the public are encouraged to report incidents via text or phone to 0458 643 993. There will also be security and police personnel that you can report to. 

Can I smoke at TIO Stadium?

TIO Stadium remains a smoke-free venue, however, patrons will have access to designated smoking areas at the Ah Mat Gate.

What are the emergency evacuation procedures?

In the event of an emergency, an announcement will be made over the PA system. If TIO Stadium needs to be evacuated, the Bonson, Ah Mat and scoreboard gates will be opened, and patrons will be directed to the safest route.

Does TIO Stadium give pass outs or refunds?

Gate staff at TIO Stadium are able to issue passouts to allow patrons to re-enter TIO Stadium on the same day and only pay the difference in ticket price. 

It is highly unlikely that AFLNT will need to issue refunds, but all patrons are encouraged to keep hold of their ticket stubs. In the event of AFLNT rescheduling games, please follow the instructions issued by gate staff for information on pass outs/refunds. 

What is the Extreme Weather Policy?

When it comes to lightning and other weather events, the umpires and match managers are the ones who will determine the risk based on the appropriate national policies and guidelines.

If you hear five sirens then please seek safe shelter immediately.  

See here for a detailed explanation of the Extreme Weather (lightning) Policy and what might happen.
