The AFL will for the first time release 10,000 grand final tickets to the general public, with prices starting from $185 each.

The tickets will be available through Ticketmaster next Thursday, the AFL announced this morning.

The news comes just one day after the state government announced tough new rules for scalpers.

Authorised ticket prices will range from $185 to $450 per person and concession seats from $157 to $383.

The two competing teams will each be allocated 12,000 seats, with the balance of unused tickets to also go on sale to the general public.

AFL executive general manager (commercial and customer) Kyle Rogers said the grand final was shaping up to be the biggest sporting event in Perth.

Optus Stadium, which can cater for 60,000 spectators, was recently chosen as the host venue over the MCG, due to continued virus restrictions in Melbourne.

Last week, Optus hosted a finals match between Geelong and GWS.

The first of the two preliminary finals - between Melbourne and Geelong - will be held at the Burswood stadium tomorrow night.

"The first two finals at Optus Stadium have delivered outstanding crowds, with Friday night selling out in a matter of hours," Ms Rogers said.

"The energy in the city is electric, and we know the demand for the grand final will be as strong as ever."

The second preliminary final match, between Port Adelaide and the Western Bulldogs, is being played at Adelaide Oval on Saturday.

The winners will go on to play in the 2021 AFL Grand Final on September 25, with tickets to go on sale for members of the competing clubs on September 13.

South Australia, the Northern Territory and Tasmania remain a ‘very low risk’ to WA, meaning visitors aren’t required to quarantine upon arrival.

Queensland is deemed ‘low risk’ and visitors are required to self-quarantine for 14 days.

Visitors from the ACT, NSW and Victoria are not permitted to enter the state unless approved, after which they will also be required to self-isolate and complete COVID-19 tests.

More to come.
