AFL Grand Final

2023 AFL Grand Final Watch Parties

Australia loves its sport.  It loves its parties.  And it knows how to throw on a sport party. 

The Women's World Cup was a blast from beginning to end, rugby and cricket are always events, and even tournaments and championships at the local level are full of the flavor that comes with it.

But there isn't quite anything like the AFL Grand Final.  Pageantry, tradition, buzz, you name it.  Every year since 1898 (barring 1924 for reasons you can google), the league champions have been decided by the one ultimate game.

2022 AFL Grand Final Viewing Parties

It's been three years since the Melbourne Cricket Ground has hosted the AFL men's Grand Final.  It's been a long time, but Australia's big game has come home.

More than 100,000 fans will jam the grand old ground to see who will be the 2022 AFL men's Premiers, the climax of a season of exciting play, and the high point of a week filled with color, tradition, and festivities.  From the Grand Final parade to the Grand Final sprint and an assortment of random bands, there's something in it for everyone.

Grand Final Day in America 2021

Each year, like clockwork, the eyes of Australia fall upon a grand Colosseum and the gladiators within.

Sometimes that clock chimes in October, but the familiar tones occur in September.  And usually, that Colosseum is the gargantuan MCG.

This year, the eyes of the Aussie Rules world will be fixed on the jewel on the Western Australian Coast, Perth, and the spectacle that is the 125th AFL Grand Final Game.

The AFL Grand Final has been played every year (bar one) since 1898.  They even replayed it a couple of times (three, actually) when it ended in draws.  True Story.  100,000 will pack the Melbourne Cricket Ground, just as they have for the past century, to see who will leave as this year's premiers.
