AFL Grand Final parties 2007 - reminder

General News

Updated 23 Sep 2007 - just a quick reminder to those hosting or looking for AFL Grand Final parties that you can make use of this post or visit AFANA's site, details below.

Originally posted 11 Sep 2007:

The 2007 Australian Football League Grand Final is fast approaching and the tradition of hosting parties to watch the game is continuing to grow around the world. Whereas it used to be mostly expatriate Aussies scrambling for a venue that would show the match, now they are increasingly joined by local fans.

Rather than replicate the work of the Australian Football Association of North America (AFANA), who each year list Grand Final parties from all around the world, we once again advise readers looking for a venue to check out www.afana.com and in particular their party page. Note that they do take details from venues all over the world, not just North America.

To increase their chances of getting a search engine hit, party organisers are also welcome to log in to WFN and leave a comment on this story, detailing where fans can watch the game.

Desperate fans who find the above methods unsuccessful could also consider contacting their nearest footy club, league or Australian embassy (don't tell them we sent you!). Visit our Links section to find the closest one.

The live telecast starts at 8:30 but the finals atmosphere will be building all night, so get down early to be sure to get in, grab a few beers and a couple of pies, or a fabulous Bondi dinner in the kitchen bar and get ready for three hours of phenomenal athleticism and barely controlled brutality performed by semi-naked Aussie supermen on a field half the size of Texas – in the Greatest Game Of All!

Denver Bulldogs AFL Grand Final Party
It's at McCabes in Aurora at Southlands (directions below) and is $10 for 2 beers and a meat pie, with proceeds going to your Denver Bulldogs. Also G'day Mate Pies will be there with all your favorite Aussie goodies, we'll be raffling off cherry ripes, minties, etc. The game starts around 10, but we usually get the tailgate going around 7 and into the bar sometime between. We average around 400 people showing up (it's a huge place) so it should be another great time
