Going to the footy will cost less as Adelaide Oval’s management moves to cut the prices of food and beverages in the venue.

Food and beverages at the oval had been subject to continued price rises leading to some of the most expensive prices among the nation’s sporting venues.

Under the oval’s existing pricing model, punters paid $9.60 for a pint of full-strength beer, the second-most expensive in the country.

Meanwhile, fans have been paying the nation’s highest price for meat pies at $5.80.

Under the new pricing, pints of full-strength beer will come down to $8.50 and meat pies to $4.50. Hot chips and soft drinks will also have their prices cut.

The new pricing will come into effect from Monday night’s game between Adelaide and St Kilda and is set to continue through next year’s AFL season.
