The state government is rushing through new anti-scalping laws before tickets go on sale for the AFL Grand Final.

The legislation has passed the Upper House and will go to the Lower House next week.

Commerce Minister Amber Jade Sanderson said the laws will protect West Australians from a number of issues.

“Essentially it will limit the resale of tickets to 110 per cent of the original sale price,” she told Gareth Parker.

“It will limit packaging of tickets unless by authorised packages.

“It will also prohibit importantly the use of software bots, where we see offshore companies hoover up tickets using bots, and then resealing those at significantly marked up prices.

“We want to protect the general admission tickets.”
