2017 Toyota AFL Grand Final

Spring has sprung in the city, and September is no doubt one of the best times to be a Melburnian. Two words, 10 letters: Grand Final.

With the home and away season, as well as four weeks of intense finals behind us, we’ve finally reached what many consider the best day in Melbourne’s calendar: the 2017 Toyota AFL Grand Final!

  • Saturday, September 30th, 2017
  • First bounce is 2:30pm (but get there early to immerse yourself in the atmosphere!)
  • MCG

Watch out as the two best teams of the AFL final battle it out for AFL supremacy (and bragging rights!)

The Adelaide Crows and Richmond Tigers both had incredible runs. The Crows blazed their way into finals with their impressive 15-6 win-loss ratio (and one draw!), finishing as minor premiers at the conclusion of the home and away season. Richmond heads to the finals with an equally impressive 15-7 win-loss ratio.

Just like any AFL Grand Final in the past, there will be glorious moments of triumph and defeat that fans will remember forever. No matter the outcome, expect a show-stopping performance from both teams.

In 2016, the MCG witnessed a showdown between the Sydney Swans and the Western Bulldogs.  This Grand Final was witnessed by a 100,000-strong audience, and 2017 won’t be any different.

Grand Final Parade

The excitement for this event doesn’t only kick off on the Grand Final day! Join thousands of AFL fans on the streets of Melbourne at the annual Grand Final Parade on Grand Final Day Eve, Friday 29th September.
