With a newly-announced public holiday in Victoria for Grand Final Eve on Friday (seriously), Seven is hoping for a big crowd to turn up at Federation Square for its Grand Final Eve Countdown.
The event will be recorded from 6:30pm if you wish to attend.
On Grand Final eve Channel 7 brings you a preview of the ultimate decider, along with some of the biggest names in entertainment including indie rock band British India performing live.
Hosted by Hamish McLachlan with Cameron Ling and Wayne Carey, the panel will have loads of fun as they select their very own AFL person of the year, cross live to the West Coast Eagles at their hotel, and nominate their greatest Grand Final heroes, games and entertainment.
Special AFL guests including Bruce McAvaney, Leigh Matthews and All-Australian captain Robert Murphy will be there to give us their view on how the Grand Final will unfold.
Rebecca Maddern will be soaking up all the atmosphere with the fans in Federation Square. And 7 News meteorologist Jane Bunn will tell us the all-important Grand Final weather forecast.
Two lucky fans in the crowd at Federation Square will also win Grand Final tickets.
Then it’s the traditional Grand Final footy marathon to take us through to Sunrise on Saturday morning.
