AFL boss Gillon McLachlan said it was important to the League for finals to be accessible to all.

"We are committed to ensuring finals footy remains within reach of all fans and enabling them to experience the atmosphere that the Toyota AFL Finals Series brings," McLachlan said. 

"With a heavily contested season of competition so far and the top eight still to be determined, it's important that fans can support their team in person throughout the finals.

"The Toyota AFL Grand Final is not just one of the biggest days on our calendar but also a celebration of Australian culture. We continually strive to preserve affordability of the game, to make way for as much of the community as possible."
