The decision comes after the Scottish Football Supporters Association (SFSA) called for fair pricing of whhat's being dubbed as the 'Family Final' last week.
Paul Goodwin from the Scottish Football Supporters Association, welcomed the news stating: “We asked the Scottish FA to review its pricing for this year’s Scottish Cup Final so we welcome the decision.
"This match, The Family Final, will be the biggest of the year for fans of Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Falkirk and reducing the prices for it will hopefully encourage as many supporters of both teams, as well as neutrals, to attend.”
Scottish FA Chief Executive, Stewart Regan, said: “This year’s William Hill Scottish Cup Final promises to be a wonderful occasion, one that will capture the imagination not just of Falkirk and Inverness Caledonian Thistle fans, but their respective communities at large.
“On behalf of the Scottish FA, I would like to thank both clubs for their positive contributions to the plans for the Final, and wish them the best of luck on May 30th.”
Kenny Cameron, Chairman of Inverness Caledonian Thistle, said: “This will be very much a 'family final' and with youngsters able to attend for £5, I hope supporters will feel that the pricing meets their pockets and that it also appeals to neutral followers.
"I'm pleased that we, Falkirk, and the Scottish FA were able to reach a timely and amicable agreement on ticket prices, and we've already received an impressive volume of enquiries as the countdown to the Final gathers momentum.
"There will be a major exodus from the Highlands on the day plus we'll have supporters travelling from a range of countries. It should be a memorable occasion."
Falkirk Executive Director, Ronnie Bateman, said: “There has been a huge number of enquiries about tickets already, not only from our own supporters, but from neutrals.
“I think everybody realises it’s going to be an exciting afternoon of football, and a game which will be in the ‘not-to-be-missed’ category.
“We’ve had fruitful talks with Inverness Caledonian Thistle and the Scottish FA, and all parties are committed to making sure that fans get their tickets with ease, and at an affordable price, for what promises to be a great family day out.”
