Grand Final Day in America 2021

EVERY attendee to 2021 USAFL Nationals in Austin, TX, will need to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination OR negative COVID test result. Test must be taken Oct 13, 2021 at 8am or later.

Logged in users can submit their Covid-19 vaccine/test report.  Results must be submitted online no later than 5pm Friday, October 15.

All COVID-19 reports will be expunged on October 18, 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.

Who will be the men's Champions of the AFL in season 2021?  Will it be the Melbourne Demons who snap the longest current drought in the league at 57 years?  Or, will it be the Western Bulldogs to hoist their third cup in team history and their second in six seasons?

The color and pageantry of Grand Final Day will be twofold.  You can watch the game live starting at 5am EDT on Fox Sports 2, and you can watch the pregame festivities and the match itself starting at 4am EDT on WatchAFL.

With the game starting too late, or perhaps too early for most teams to have live viewing parties, many USAFL clubs are hosting pre- and post-game get-togethers.  One in New York will be live.  Below is the current list of USAFL hosted events surrounding the AFL Grand Final.  Click on the links below for more information about each event.

We urge you to support your local footy club, and if you do go, we also ask that you observe Covid measures such as social distancing as guided by the CDC and local authorities.
