    Cape Town - The Melbourne Rebels, controversially kept on at the expense of the Western Force for Super Rugby 2018, will slash ticket prices by 40% when the new season gets underway. 

    FIXTURES: Super Rugby 2018

    Next year's new-look tournament has been resized from 18 teams to 15, and with Australian Rugby having kept on the Rebels and ditched the Force, the Melbourne-based side is now plotting the way forward. 

    With crowd figures having been a concern throughout the tournament, the Rebels on Tuesday announced plan for a new financial model that is geared at getting more people to buy in to the side. 

    "The Rebels will provide unrivalled access to home games in 2018 after the club slashed the entry level Blue Rebel Army membership and general admission ticket prices by 40 per cent to ensure all Victorians have the opportunity to support the Rebels next season," a statement on the club's website said.

    The Rebels, who have a new coach in Dave Wessels, will get their 2018 season underway when they host the Reds on February 23.
