Fans tell AFL to drop prices

The Advertiser - - NEWS -

AFL fans are calling on the league to shake up en­ter­tain­ment, make matches more af­ford­able and take more ac­tion against ticket scalp­ing to make the game more ap­peal­ing.

With the Soc­ceroos kick­ing off their FIFA World Cup cam­paign tonight, footy fans will this week­end draw up a plan of how to make the AFL bet­ter.

An un­prece­dented sum­mit of fans will meet in Mel­bourne on Sun­day to com­pile a list it will take to the AFL.

The AFL Fans’ As­so­ci­a­tion will call for the grand fi­nal to stay in its day­time slot and an end to con­stant rule changes in a plea for league HQ to put sup­port­ers ahead of prof­its.

A wide-reach­ing poll to be put to fans in­cludes a push to bring back the tor­pedo punt and make it eas­ier for dis­abled sup­port­ers to see games.

AFL Fans’ As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Gerry Ee­man said hot topics in­clude prices of tick­ets, food and mer­chan­dise.
