AFL and Players Association agree to new pay deal
The AFL and the Players Association have agreed to a new pay deal.
Herald Sun reporter and 3AW Football commentator Mick Warner has reported the deal is worth a staggering $1.84 billion over six years.
It equates to 28 per cent of revenue – a proportion that will be guaranteed for the length of the deal.
The average wage will rise from $309,000 to $371,000.
Club salary caps will rise to $12.45m, an increase of over $2m.
Mick told Tom Elliott it is effective immediately – but not for all players.
“I think it’s about 60 per cent of players will have this in their contract, which will mean they’re wealthier today,” Mick said.
