Visitors to the famous three-day carnival will be treated to top level athletics in a COVID-safe environment.
“We are delighted to be able to welcome up to 5,000 spectators per day to Powercor Stawell Gift this year and are thrilled to have tickets now on sale,” said Stephanie Spence, Chair of Stawell Gift Event Management.
“The atmosphere at Central Park is like no other and this year’s attendees will again experience the best that the Gift has to offer in a COVID-safe environment. Tickets start at just $15 and there’s free entry for children on Easter Sunday.”
“Some of Australia’s best runners are heading to Stawell to compete for a piece of Australian athletics history and we want to thank the Victorian Government for their support, assistance and approval of our COVID-safe plan, which allows us to welcome spectators to witness this iconic event.”
All tickets for the 2021 Powercor Stawell Gift must be purchased via Ticketek. Attendees are strongly encouraged to purchase tickets on-line in advance of the event to ensure the best chance of securing a ticket and to eliminate queues at the event.
As part of the events’ COVID-safe approval, Central Park will have two spectator zones. The Maroon Zone will have a maximum capacity of 2,200 spectators per day, while the White Zone will have a maximum capacity of 2,800 spectators per day. Each zone will offer a range of seating options as well as an array of food and coffee vendors, a merchandise store and a Furphy bar. Spectators will be required to remain within their ticketed zone for the duration of each ticketed session. All ticketing is General Admission.
“The Government is proud to back this iconic event investing $1.22 million across four years to ensure the Gift continues to provide a substantial economic benefit and jobs in central Victoria,” said Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events, Martin Pakula.
“With a new major sponsor in Powercor, a new board of management and a stellar line-up of athletes, I encourage Victorians to secure their tickets to what promises to be another wonderful carnival.”
2021 is a comeback-year for this iconic event, with 2020 becoming only the fifth time that the event hasn’t been held since 1878, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The only other year’s the Gift was not contested were 1942-45 during World War 2. 2019 Champions, Dhruv Rodrigues Chico and Lexi Louizou will head a class field of over 600 athletes competing across the Carnival.
