Victorian government confirms floating AFL grand final public holiday after confusion

The Victorian government confirmed in May 2020 there will be a public holiday the day before the AFL grand final - whenever it might take place.

AFL clubs and fans will finally receive clarity about the 2020 season relaunch on Friday, with chief executive Gillon McLachlan to unveil the league's plans at 12.45pm.

Victorian Treasurer Tim Pallas said it would remain on September 25, 2020 despite the grand final likely taking place in October.

Why it would stay in September was immediately questioned, with the public holiday seen as an opportunity to get more football fans into Melbourne's CBD for the annual grand final parade.

The Toyota AFL Grand Final Parade, proudly supported by the City of Melbourne, provides a chance for supporters of all ages to see the players taking part in the 2020 Toyota AFL Grand Final.

Marching bands and roving entertainers will join the cavalcade of Toyota HiLuxes and the ALL-New Toyota Supras parading the Grand Final teams from the Old Treasury Building to the Toyota AFL Grand Final Live Site at Yarra Park at the MCG on Friday 25th September.
