If you don't find a party listed below for your city please stop back again. AFANA receives announcements and posts parties right up to Grand Final time and many announcements are not received until a few days before the Grand Final. We also suggest that you do one or more of the following:
- Post a message asking for help on our forums (site registration required). (Do not post personal blogs for this purpose, please.)
- Post a message asking for help on our Facebook page.
- Contact hosts of parties in the city in previous years. Do a search for the city on this website or click on any blue link above this story for the city or state. Be sure to scroll down the page.
- Contact the nearest Australian embassy or consulate. Often they know where they are going to watch!
- Contact the nearest chapter of the Australian American Chamber of Commerce
or Canadian Australian Chamber of Commerce Local chambers often organize parties or know who does.
- Contact the nearest footy club in the USA or the nearest footy club in Canada . They are the most common local party hosts.
- The AFL had a party listing in some previous years. If they do this year, we'll add the link here and cross list with them so the sites ultimately have similar information give or take a short delay.
Please note: All times are listed in their respective time zone and are listed alphabetically by city name. Cities listed more than once have multiple parties so check all links. Also note, all dates will be listed in the US format, which is MM/DD/YY. If you know of a party we do not have listed please encourage the host to visit this site and submit their party for the benefit of other fans. AFANA does not organize or manage the parties; they are the sole responsibility of the organizer or venue.
