What is the difference between the Games entry fee and the sport entry fee, and where does this money go?

The Games entry fee is the same for all participants and is set by the Australian Masters Games organising committee. This Games fee component is directed towards the operational costs of staging the event, to ensure a well conducted event for all competitors. This includes the overall Games costs such as the entertainment hub, social programs, ceremonies, and centralised services such as accreditation, staffing, first aid, etc.

The sport entry fee is paid by all participants in addition to the Games entry fee, but differs by sport and/or event, depending on what you are entering. This fee is set by the sport organiser, and goes towards the costs of conducting the individual sport competition, including venue hire, equipment and timing costs, etc.

Back to menu

Can I make changes to my registration?

Yes, however the changes that can be made by participants themselves are limited.

Participants have the ability to update personal information and/or register into additional sports/events via the MyMastersGames portal.

All other changes, including withdrawing from a sport, swapping events, changing from one division to another, and/or updating race information (e.g. time/distance) will need to be made by the AMG registration team. Please email amg.rego@unisport.com.au detailing your request.

Back to menu 

Can I enter more than one person at a time?

Each participant must complete their own online registration. At the end of the registration process you can select to “add another person”, however this functionality is available to new registrations only (i.e. the person you are trying to register does not have an existing account with AMG). You can add as many people as you wish, making sure that all entry details are correct before proceeding to the checkout. Please make sure that you carefully check the summary page before making your payment.

If the person you are trying to register already has an existing account and/or shares the same email address you will need to run through the registration process separately (i.e. register and make payment for the first participant, then register and make payment for the second participant). The benefit of registering separately is that the system will automatically pre-populate the participants pre-existing details.
