Grand Final Parties
Items related to GF Parties including postings, instructions, etc.
(This post will be updated with any changes right up to match time and network schedules often change.)(9/23/19: TSN pre-game coverage start time moved back to 9:00 PM. All coverage and times are now confirmed.)
Fox Soccer Plus (FSP) in the USA and TSN2 in Canada will carry the 2019 Grand Final between Richmond and Greater Western Sydney LIVE on Friday night / Saturday morning, September 27th / 28th. US coverage on FSP will begin at approximately 12:24 AM EDT Saturday. Coverage will continue until approximately 3:30 AM EDT Saturday concluding after the match. No other pre- or post-match coverage will be provided on Fox. FSP will air multiple repeats of the game. Set your DVR accordingly and add extra recording time before as the match starts earlier than the half-hour and the feed may start unexpectedly (most guides show the start time as 12:30 AM so you'll miss at least 6 minutes if you don't) and after so you don't miss anything if the match is extended due to a tie at the end of the 4th quarter!
Canadian coverage on TSN2 will begin with the pregame at 9:00 PM EDT Friday and the game coverage at 12:24 AM EDT Saturday and run to 3:30 AM EDT Saturday.
If you have no access to either of the preceding options, the game will be live via the internet on WatchAFL (payment required, US$23 for individuals) and you can sign up at this link. WatchAFL coverage will begin at 12:24 AM EDT however, they will have pre-match coverage beginning at 7:00 PM EDT and post-match coverage for as long as the Fox Footy in Australia continues. Pre- and post-match are relayed on the Fox Footy feed area of the service. Free coverage by internet radio is also available; check our AFL Radio page.
