AFL grand final entertainment: Who will be performing?

When will the AFL Grand final 2021 Entertainment start?
The Australian Football League (AFL) Grand Final is the biggest sporting event in Australia. Held annually since 1897, it determines the winner of the AFL Premiership for that year. The game is played only once every year and has been held at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) since 1902, except during World War II when it was not played because of wartime restrictions on travel between states.
The Optus Stadium in Perth will host the AFL’s Grand Final on September 25, with a start time of 5:15 pm AWST / 7:15 pm AEST.
The time of day the AFL Grand Final is played has been a point of discussion for years. Some players think it should start earlier so they can have more energy before their big game, while others argue that starting later will allow people in different areas to watch together as well as giving those without cable TV better coverage options.
AFL executives decided on a 5:15 pm AWST (or 7:15 AEST) beginning this year because they wanted fans at games with an ultimate experience by maximizing stadium offerings while taking into consideration broadcast audiences across the country – but not everyone agreed.
The AFL and the Seven Network are cognizant of giving younger fans a chance to watch their games. As such, they have scheduled night matches for earlier in a season than what’s usually seen during prime time hours with last year’s Grand Final being an example of how this change can be beneficial.
The bye week will give the two combatants of a Grand Final 14 days to prepare.
How to watch the 2021 AFL Grand Final?
The best channel to watch the game on is Channel 7. It’s live and free-to-air, so you can get your fix no matter where in Australia or New Zealand you are located.
Foxtel is a great network for watching live sports, but if you want to see your team win the flag this Sunday then don’t plan on tuning into Fox. Luckily though, Foxx will show a replay immediately following each match so that fans can relive their victory (or defeat) with ease.
Don’t worry, sports fans! The Kayo streaming service doesn’t broadcast the grand final. But you can enjoy it on TV with Channel 7 in Australia for this year’s biggest game of footy – and so should everyone else who wants to see what all those people are talking about when they mention “footy.”

Who is playing in the AFL Grand Final?
As the Melbourne Football Club accepted their invitation to this year’s AFL Grand Final, they were already heavy favorites. The team thrashed Geelong 125-42 in the first preliminary final on Friday night and will take on Western Bulldogs who defeated Port Adelaide by 71 points in another match that was replayed from an earlier time period when it happened back 55 years ago.
Footscray’s two premiership victories still make them one of only two clubs with successful history so far at winning championships after having won last season’s flag without losing any games along these fifty-five long years since then (the other being Collingwood).
This game might come down between which side can hold out longer before succumbing: those hoping for yet another win would be delighted.
AFL Grand Final odds
Melbourne entered the final as slight favorites to lift their maiden premiership, with punters paying $2.25 on Western Bulldogs and bookies putting them at odds of 7.5 (although they are considered by many experts to be underdogs).
The Dees’ key players include Clayton Oliver ($7), Marcus Bontempelli(8) – who might just have won himself a Norm Smith Medal if he isn’t already one – Max Gawn($8).
Who will the Grand Final umpires be?
The three on-field umpires for the 2021 AFL Grand Final are Brett Rosebury (ninth Grand Final), Matt Stevic, and Jacob Mollison who will be making their ninth appearance each.
The four boundary officers at this year’s game include Michael Marantelli in his fourth consecutive qualifying final, Christopher Gordon getting a third go-around as well while Matthew Konetschka gets another crack after last year’s semi-finals failure against Port Adelaide Football Club.
These five also form half of Hawthorn’s reserve side that took part yesterday despite injury concerns prior to Saturday night’s matchup between Sydney Swans & Geelong Cats where both goal umpire Steven Axon & Bunker operator Stephen Williams were again needed.

The AFL has announced the decision to not hold a traditional Grand Final Parade, instead opting for an event in Western Australia’s capital.
The organization says they prioritized “minimizing risk and ensuring health & wellbeing of players, staff’ is paramount.” A statement read.
“While the number one priority remains to keep our community safe and healthy, we’ve made a decision not to hold traditional street parades this year. Instead of holding it in residential areas where there are residents nearby that may be forced into containment zones or fleeing from pandemic outbreaks themselves, giving fans an opportunity for free admission with tickets available.”
When is the Brownlow Medal?
Traditionally, the Brownlow Medal ceremony has been held on Monday evening before AFL Grand Final day. Last year it was moved to Sunday with that set continuing in 2021 and now we know for certain what date: September 19th.
The gold-standard award will be presented at 5:30 pm AWST/7:30 pm AEST – perfect timing if you’re looking forward to checking out your favorite side take home another premiership belt after such an impressive season they’ve had thus far.
