GC2018 tickets – avoid scams and only buy official

The countdown is on for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) and with tickets still available to see some of the world’s greatest athletes compete, the Financial Cyber Crime Group would like to remind everyone to be careful online and only buy tickets from official websites, Queensland Police say.

Only buy official

It is important to only buy tickets to the Games through official ticket sales channels, which are listed on the official Commonwealth Games website at www.gc2018.com/tickets.

Don’t trust search engine results as these may direct you to fake websites – only navigate to official ticket sellers.

The Stay Smart Online website also offers further information.
