General public tickets for the Toyota AFL Grand Final have sold out within a matter of minutes as fans scrambled to get a seat for the September 25 decider.

A total of 10,250 tickets were made available for the general public, and they were snapped up in nine minutes after going on sale at 10am AWST on Thursday.

At one point on the Ticketmaster website, there were more than 130,000 people waiting in the virtual queue.

An allotment of 24,000 tickets (12,000 per club) was made available to members of the Western Bulldogs and Melbourne earlier this week.

Any individual found breaking the law could be fined up to $20,000, with companies to be slugged up to $100,000.
