The best bars and deals to watch the AFL Grand Final in Perth.

Yes, we know we didn’t win the bid for the AFL Grand Final in Perth, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still get out and enjoy the big day.

It’s the big sporting event of the year and after a rocky start to the footy season, this year’s Grand Final between Richmond and Geelong is sure to be a thriller – even if it is in Queensland.

If you’re not planning to throw your own Grand Final bash at home or just want to switch it up from your local pub, we’ve got you covered with a list of the best locations in Perth to soak in all the AFL Grand Final action live on the big screen.

What time is The AFL Grand Final?

First off let’s cover the fact that the grand final time has changed this year. Instead of bounce down at lunch time the AFL Grand Final will start at 430pm AWST.
