GOING to the footy is about to become more affordable, with transaction fees for games at Marvel Stadium now a thing of the past.
The AFL and Ticketmaster have announced a new pricing strategy to make football more accessible for fans.
The changes will take place immediately, with tickets going on sale from February 24 for AFL and club members.
This move will also extend to A-League and Big Bash games held at Marvel Stadium.
AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan says the longstanding partnership with Ticketmaster was a huge win for fans.
"Marvel Stadium hosts nearly a quarter of the AFL season's matches, our new pricing strategy with Ticketmaster removes a barrier and provides an immediate saving for fans," McLachlan said.
"Our commitment continues to make AFL games as accessible and affordable as possible.
"Over 7.5 million fans attended the footy in 2019, our clubs do a great job in providing fun and engaging match days and we will continue to give fans the best opportunity to enjoy a game of AFL footy."
On top of the transaction fees being waived for Marvel Stadium games, the AFL will freeze general admission ticket prices at the MCG and Marvel Stadium for the next three years.
General admission prices for the 2020, 2021 and 2022 seasons will remain the same as 2019.
Adults will stay at $27, concession tickets are $18, kids' tickets are $5 and family packages (two adults, two kids) are $54.
