The Australian Football League has teamed up with ticketing partner Ticketmaster to announce that transaction fees will be scrapped for all AFL, A-League soccer and Big Bash League cricket matches held at Marvel Stadium.

The Aussie rules league owns the Melbourne venue and sees the venture as a means to further enhance its commitment to access and affordability. The change will come into effect immediately for AFL matches, with tickets going on sale to AFL and club members for the 2020 Premiership season on February 24.

The AFL’s decision removes a Aus$3.10 (£1.60/€1.90/$2.10) charge per transaction for tickets to Marvel Stadium games.

Coinciding with the booking fee announcement, the AFL has also announced a three-year price freeze of general admission tickets to matches at Marvel Stadium. Adults will continue to be charged Aus$27, concessions Aus$18 and children Aus$5. A family ticket for two adults and two children is priced at Aus$54.
