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.
