Ticket prices start at $20 for adults, $10 for children (under-18) and $55 for a family of four.

There is also a fan package available for $150 that includes reserved grandstand seating, pre and post VIP tent access, the opportunity to meet players, a ticket to the Falcons' first home game of 2017, nibbles and a 90-minute pre-game drinks package plus a Melbourne Storm cap.

Tickets can be purchased from the Sunshine Coast Stadium website.
