Please let me know about any gathering for the Grand Final in San Diego.  Bondi is gone... hoping for a better venue than the Australian Pub.   *Might* be able to arrange something at O'Briens if there really is nothing else organized, but surely not?  But it'd be the kinda deal where I don't know if they'd turn off the music.  Though, if I could commit to a bunch of attendees, who knows.

But I say this as a TOTAL outsider to the local community, so I am assuming there is a place and it just hasn't been announced.

We post every party we receive provided they use our online form to submit it (and 99% do).  Thus, if we get one for San Diego we'll put it up.  We're mostly current with everything submitted save for the one or two that arrived in the past 24 hours which are still being processed.  

I hope you find the party that suits you and of course, should you decide to organize one yourself, let us know as soon as possible.  You can always do one on a small scale and see what happens.

Last year a place called, I beleive, The Australia Pub hosted a party. If they're still open, check with them to see if they're having another one. In the past we've received party announcements from the San Diego area; I'm surprised we didn't this year.

I'm a Saints supporter and will be in San Diego for the Grand Final. Will go anywhere to see the game so happy to be part of the commited bunch of attendees if needed. GO SAINTS!!!

I, too, am lokking for a place to watch the Grand Final replay. I am open to any where in SD. Preferably a place with some good craft beer. If I find a place, I'll be sure to post it and hope others will do the same.

Well, I will be going with a small group to the Regal Beagle around 9. Seating is limited, but if you are looking for a place, you can join us. If we get sufficient critical mass, I'm sure they'll turn the sound on for us (which is always the real issue -- most places are happy to change the TV channel, but getting the jukebox turned off on a Friday night is a different matter). Regal Beagle has about 25 taps of craft beer, emphasis on west coast IPAs and such, but usually a couple of Belgians and a couple of maltier options as well. I'll submit this as a "party" to the site here.


Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, it was in response to something posted 3 years ago and other than what you see on the page, there is little we can add this far out.

AFANA is a national volunteer organization and it's just logistically impossible for us to keep track of bars and pubs in every city. Our suggestions for you would be to look for where the local San Diego Australian football club hangs out and perhaps they could give you some suggestions.

Beyond that, we have full info on TV coverage on our TV pages from the links near the top of the right hand column. You may have access to the Fox Sports 2 and Fox Soccer Plus on your cable or satellite system and can watch coverage from home.
