Mr Bol was issued the fine for trespassing on September 25, when he jumped onto the field at three-quarter time of the AFL Grand Final, running and back-flipping for 200m before being tackled by security.
The 22-year-old claims he’ll be able to easily cover the penalty, having already raised $1400 through donations.
“I did actually expect it to be a lot bigger,” Mr Bol said.
“It did catch me by surprise at $1200 so I do appreciate that, so that’s good so far.”
Mr Bol, who snuck into the ground wearing a black T-shirt with “security” written on the front, represented himself.
He told the court there were “no excuses” for his actions and that he “thought it would be fun”.
But the magistrate described him as a “nuisance” and the illegal dash as “a disturbance for everyone else”.
“I don’t think I was a nuisance but I do understand where she was coming from ’cause I did disturb the peace,” Mr Bol said.
“I think I learnt my lesson, the judge was nice, spoke to me nice and I think that’s about it for now.”
Mr Bol has received a three-year ban from Optus Stadium.
“Our review has also recommended alterations to the guarding of our staff entry gate and an assessment of the minimum capability requirements for security personnel assigned to it,” a spokesperson for Optus Stadium said.
