Missed out on tickets? Here’s where to watch the AFL Grand Final in Perth so you can still get in on all the action
The biggest day on any AFL fan’s calendar is fast approaching. Will Melbourne break their 57-year premiership drought, or will the Doggies get the job done and come out on top?

But wipe away those tears, because there will still be plenty of Perth pubs pulling out all the stops for the big dance with booze, food and big screens galore so you can get in amongst all the Grand Final action.
