The 2020 Toyota AFL Grand Final will be played at the Gabba, Brisbane, on Saturday 24th October – a month later than usual due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
For the first time ever, the Grand Final will be played as a night fixture. Kick off is at 6:30pm local Brisbane time (AEST) or 7:30pm Melbourne and Sydney time (AEDT). Watching from the UK? The match will commence at a leisurely 9.30am BST on Saturday.
The 42,000-capacity Gabba – home to the Brisbane Lions – will host a reduced crowd of 30,000 for the 2020 season-decider. Rock trio DMA’s are the half-time entertainment and in true Grand Final tradition, Mike Brady will perform ‘Up Their Cazaly’ live from Melbourne.
Over the past five years, Richmond have won the premiership on two occasions, most recently in 2019. The Tigers will have three of the four highest-rated players on the field come Saturday, with Shane Edwards and Dion Prestia alongside Dustin Martin.
Geelong might be the underdogs but they’re more than capable of rising to the challenge. The Cats will field 11 of the 20 top-ranked players including No.1-ranked key forward Tom “Tomahawk” Hawkins and general forward Gary Ablett.

Even if you have 7plus, or have subscribed to the relevant rights holders, you won’t be able to access these services when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
