The race is on to fill the hill for the John I Dent Cup grand final with ACT rugby officials securing an exemption for a bigger crowd at Viking Park on Saturday.
Now Canberra Royals and Gungahlin Eagles fans are scrambling to get their hands on a ticket as the two clubs vie for ACT rugby union's crown.
ACT & SNSW Rugby Union has been cleared to have 700 spectators on field one, and 250 spectators on field two at Viking Park.
The exemption sees Viking Park effectively split into two separate venues with each game treated as its own individual event. Officials will ask fans to exit the venue following the match they have a ticket for.
Participating clubs will have an allocated amount of tickets per game which their supporters will be able to purchase.

Gungahlin have also been allocated 300 tickets for first grade and second grade, which will be played on field one. All other teams playing on the main field will be allocated the same.
Field one will host the first grade, women's, second grade, and colts grand finals. Field two will host third and fourth grade deciders.
