AFL Grand Final: guide
And here is the running order for the AFL's big day.
TEN ends its ten year broadcast of the AFL with that one day in October, a battle between Collingwood and Geelong.
Meatloaf is performing after 1:30pm and Vanessa Amorosi will sing the National Anthem at 2:27pm (and please, no complaints that it isn’t sing-along enough?).
Here is the running order for the day.
Network TEN will bring viewers the very best in AFL Grand Final day coverage from 10am – 6.30pm as, after ten years, we broadcast the AFL for the very last time.
Boasting more cameras than ever before and with over 180 crew working on the day, the coverage will be hosted by Stephen Quartermain and Anthony Hudson with expert commentary by Luke Darcy and Matthew Lloyd.
With all of our AFL commentators on ground for the day, we will look back at TEN’s greatest moments from the last 10 years.
Sprinkled throughout the coverage will be a variety of flashbacks to the last nine Grand Finals – the highs, the lows and those moments that are ensconced in AFL Grand Final history.
The coverage will also boast, for the first time, an outside studio. Hosted by Gorgi Coghlan and Charlie Pickering, a number of special guests will drop by to talk all things AFL.
