Kids Go Free Month returns in 2023

Thousands of kids across the country will have the opportunity to attend AFL matches for FREE during Rounds 16-19 of the 2023 Toyota AFL Premiership season, with the return of the AFL's Kids Go Free Month initiative.

In celebration of the AFL's mighty kids' fan base, children aged 14 years and under will have free entry* to AFL games played from June 29 to July 23, which aligns with the Term Two school holidays nationwide.

Each match across Kids Go Free Month will have nominated ticket categories in which junior tickets will be free, with the initiative set to help families save up to $28 for a junior ticket at various stadiums across the country.


Kids of all ages can enjoy a host of family-focused activities that will enhance their match day experience including entertainment, footy inflatables, meet and greet with club mascots, dedicated Fan Zone experience, face painting, jugglers and more.

Season 2023 marks the second year of the Kids Go Free Month initiative, which saw a 22 per cent increase in junior attendance at games during the campaign in 2022.

AFL Executive General Manager Customer and Commercial Kylie Rogers said Kids Go Free Month was a perfect activity for families to enjoy during the school holidays.

"The AFL is committed to making our game accessible for everyone to enjoy, so we're proud to bring back Kids Go Free Month to help ease the cost-of-living pressures for families across the country," Ms. Rogers said.

"There's nothing quite like getting your friends and family together and soaking up the exciting atmosphere that only live footy can provide, so I'd encourage footy fans of all ages to snap up a ticket and get amongst all the action these school holidays."

Tickets for matches at the MCG and Marvel Stadium for Rounds 16-23 will go on sale at 10am (local time) for Club Members and 3pm (local time) for General Public on Thursday June 8.
