Homegrown acts Vance Joy and The Living End will feature as part of this year's AFL Grand Final entertainment at the MCG.

STING will be the major international act to perform.

The artists will perform during the pre-game show and in a free concert for fans at the post-match premiership party.

League chief executive Gillon McLachlan promised to announce another surprise act in a few weeks.

"Fans who miss out on the opportunity to witness the Toyota AFL Grand Final live, will have the opportunity to come into the MCG following the match for a free concert, the Virgin Australia Premiership Party, headlined by Vance Joy and The Living End."

Fans who don't have tickets to the Grand Final can enter the MCG from 6pm post-game to join the premiership party.

Further announcements, including the identity of the Australian national anthem singer, will be released in the lead-up to the Grand Final.

How to get to the MCG?
The best way is public transport (trams/trains). Metro Melbourne put on extra services (trams and trains) before and after the game. Cars and parking are always a nightmare on the big day plus if it rains, Yarra Park will get muddy with the possibility of getting bogged.

Whats the weather forecast?
Melbourne weather.. Four seasons in one day, what will the bureau forecast?

Drawn Grand Final


It was announced in 2016, that if the scores were tied at the end of the game, two additional five minute halves would be played.

In the event of scores still being tied after two additional five minute halves, the game would continue until the next score and be decided by a "golden point". Under the new system, which will apply for all finals, if scores remain locked after the second of the two extra periods, the siren will not sound until one team has scored to break the deadlock.

Each team will get an extra 15 interchange rotations across the two additional halves of time. There will be a normal time length quarter break at the end of the full match but between the two additional time-on periods teams would simply change ends.
