A day after confirming the schedule for the first two weeks of the 2021 AFL finals, the league has announced a price freeze on all tickets.
The AFL reiterated their "commitment to affordability by freezing tickets nationally, across all games and venues in weeks one and two" in response to the impact COVID-19 has had on the season, and AFL fans and members.
"It has been a challenging season for everyone, the uncertainty in the community resulting in the constant changes in fixturing has tested our whole industry, none more so than footy fans around the country," AFL Executive General Manager Customer and Commercial Kylie Rogers said in a statement.
"Matches without fans are simply not the same, they don't evoke the passion and emotion that is so powerful to be a part of, especially when watching from the stands.
"With this in mind, our commitment remains to keep finals footy prices as an affordable option and thanking the members and fans who have stuck by their club's this season.
"Four matches across two state this weekend and I know the atmosphere will be electric and the roar of the crowd will be as loud as ever.
"While it is disappointing that we cannot play in front of Melbourne or Sydney crowds this weekend, the priority is for both of those states to continue to stay strong and hopefully the games on the weekend will bring some much-needed joy."
Tickets for the opening weeks of the finals will start at $35 and be on sale from today.
