The 2020 AFL Grand Final will take place on Saturday October 24.
The 2020 AFL Grand Final will be played at the Gabba in Brisbane. It’s the first time the premiership showpiece will be held outside of Victoria in 123 years.
It’s been confirmed by the AFL that the 2020 Grand Final will be a night game, kicking off at 6.30pm local time in Brisbane and 7.30pm AEDT.
The Grand Final will be broadcast live and free-to-air on Channel 7.
Due to contractual obligations, Fox Footy and Kayo cannot show the Grand Final live and instead will replay the final later that night.
Under the current finals system, eight teams qualify and are split into the top four and bottom four. The top four battle it out in Week 1 of the Finals for the chance to advance into the preliminary finals, while the bottom four square off for the opportunity to progress into Week 2, with the two losing sides being eliminated.
The two winners of the bottom four face the two losers of the top four in Week 2. The two winners in Week 2 of the Finals then move on to face the Week 1 winners in the preliminary finals in Week 3. The two winning teams then collide in the Grand Final for the right to claim the premiership.
Yes. The AFL introduced the pre-finals bye after North Melbourne and Fremantle chose to rest half their teams in the last round of the 2015 season when they had confirmed their spots, meaning their weakened sides affected other results in the last round of the regular season.
A crowd of around 30,000 fans are expected to be allowed into the Gabba for the Grand Final, although the AFL will confirm the exact number shortly.
It has been confirmed that 54 per cent of tickets allocated will go to members of the competing teams, split evenly. The remaining tickets will then go on sale to the general public. Click here for all the latest info for how you can purchase AFL Grand Final tickets.
Essendon and Carlton have won the most AFL/VFL premierships with 16 each. Out of the current teams, only Fremantle, Gold Coast and GWS have failed to win a premiership.
It’s not yet confirmed who will be performing, but due to travel restrictions, it’s likely to be Australian artists, with Queensland acts likely to be among the performers.
The Voice alum Tim McCallum will sing the national anthem at the Grand Final.
Former North Melbourne and Port Adelaide star Byron Pickett will present the Norm Smith Medal for this year’s player of the match.
