Tickets to the 2015 Melbourne Cup Carnival began selling yesterday morning, the earliest they have been offered in the Victoria Racing Club's 150-year history, reports racing.com. In a special early bird offer, the VRC are offering a discount of almost 15 per cent over the four days of the internationally acclaimed carnival. VRC Acting Chief Executive Julian Sullivan said the VRC has listened to its customers and was hoping to provide better value to help grow attendance across the four days. "This year we are not only giving customers a better value experience at Flemington but allowing interstate and international visitors more time to book their flights and accommodation while at the same time securing a great value ticket option," Mr Sullivan said. "Market research showed that our customers want all hospitality and ticket options on sale at the one time and we have listened to them." Melbourne Cup Carnival tickets are available for purchase on the VRC website - www.flemington.com.au.
