AFL Grand Final 2022 Live Stream
We finally know which teams will be battling out in the final AFL game of the season, so here’s everything you need to keep in mind ahead of the 2022 AFL Grand Final.
When is the 2022 AFL Grand Final?
The 2022 Grand Final is slated for its traditional time slot of 2:30 pm AEST on Saturday, September 24. The game is also set to be played at the MCG; another tradition we’re seeing return after the 2021 final was played in Perth due to the impacts of COVID.
AFL Chief Executive Officer Gillon McLachlan said back in May that “Prior to the start of this season, we emphasised that after two really challenging years, we all yearned to return to the footy rituals and routines that set the rhythms of our lives, to continue to focus on getting back to football and going to football as we know it.”
That return-to-rituals principle underpinned our decision making in ratifying a traditional start time – the prestige, nostalgia and atmosphere of the day Grand Final is something we all know and love,” he shared in a statement.
Which teams will be playing?
Finals Week has come to a close and we now know that the Sydney Swans and Geelong Cats will be battling it out in the Grand Final for 2022.
