The AFL has confirmed it will freeze the price of entry-level tickets for this season’s finals series, including the 2018 Toyota AFL Grand Final, for the second running season.

The league initially reduced the price of finals tickets in 2016, AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan confirmed on Thursday that the pricing bans for lower-tier tickets would stay the same country-wide in 2018.

The very cheapest tickets for week one and two of the finals series will stay at $35, while entry-level tickets for the preliminary final will remain at $65. While the cheapest ticket for a seat at the 2018 Toyota AFL Grand Final will cost $180.

“Our commitment continues to make AFL games accessible and affordable as possible,” McLachlan said in a statement.

“There is no better showcase for our game than the Toyota AFL Finals Series and we want all footy fans to be able to experience the atmosphere that the four weeks of matches bring.

“With the top eight yet to be locked in, we are in for a fascinating month of football across September.”
