The AFL has confirmed the 2020 Grand Final will remain in a day timeslot.
The AFL commission met yesterday and confirmed a 2.30pm AEST starting time -despite Seven’s ongoing push for a twilight match.
AFL chief executive officer Gillon McLachlan is believed to have recommended to commissioners that tradition be maintained.
AFL commission chairman Richard Goyder said: “The Toyota AFL Grand Final is the biggest event in the Australian sporting calendar, consistently attracting more than 100,000 fans to the MCG for the last Saturday in September.
“Our Grand Final showcases the best parts of our game, both on and off the field, and we look forward to another outstanding AFL season ahead of us.
“We will continue to ensure the event remains the benchmark for Australian sport.”
