The AFL has announced all entry level tickets for weeks one to four of the finals series, including the grand final, will freeze once again.
Tickets for weeks one to three have remained at the same prices since 2016 – with the cheapest adult ticket starting at $35 for weeks one and two and $65 for week three.
An entry level ticket for the grand final will remain at $185 for an adult – the price frozen for the fifth consecutive year.

AFL Executive General Manager Customer and Commercial Kylie Rogers said the price freeze was put in place to honour the commitment members and fans continue to make to their clubs.
“Our commitment remains to keep finals footy prices as an affordable option and thank the members and fans who have supported their clubs through thick and thin,” Ms Rogers said
“We have such an exciting two months ahead, the thrilling crescendo of the men’s home and away season, into our 2023 NAB AFLW Season, and the 2023 Toyota AFL Finals Series.”
Higher category-priced tickets will increase by a flat three per cent. It is the first time weeks one and two have had a price increase since 2019 and the first increase for week three since 2021.
Participating club members will begin receiving communications to get priority access to finals tickets.
Grand final allocation will remain the same as previous years with about 70,000 tickets allocated to club, AFL and MCC members.
Competing clubs will have access to 17,000 tickets each.
The finals price freeze is a part of the AFL’s commitment to ensure access and affordability for all its fans. This saw general admission ticket prices frozen once again, Gather Round tickets free for all members, the introduction of a whole season family ticket deal, kid-in free nationally over the school holidays and a price freeze on AFLW tickets, including under 18’s entering for free.
