AFL Grand Final Betting – All You Need to Know
The 2016 Grand Final for the AFL, or Australian Football League, is to be held on the 1st of October this year. Online betting enthusiasts will no doubt be monitoring the event, which will be held at the traditional venue of the Melbourne Cricket Ground, with keen interest and will be hoping to profit from the match as much as they enjoy watching it.
If you’re lucky enough to attend the event itself, tickets can be bought at the official AFL website. They are also sold by the AFL Event Office, both in person and online. This doesn’t take anything away from online betting for the event, and might make it an even better idea, since it means that you can focus on enjoying your experience when the big day arrives, rather than having to think about your AFL Grand Final Betting.
Grand Final Week 2016
The week leading up to the 1st of October is full of AFL-centred events, and should maximise the excitement of fans and anyone involved in online betting. If you’re interested in AFL Grand Final betting opportunities, watching the action unfold over this week should yield some invaluable insights.
The first preliminary final match, between the Sydney Swans and the Geelong Cats, takes place on 23 September and kicks the week’s events off. The GWS Giants will be going against the Western Bulldogs to determine the second contender in the Grand Final on the 24th.
The TAC Cup Final, an under-18s event that might give a glimpse of future AFL Grand Final betting prospects, will take place on the 25th of October along with the Virginia Football League Grand Final. A live medal count on Monday the 26th of October should give punters a better idea of the past performance of the 2 teams who will contest the final, both of whom will be known by that point.
The Great Grand Variety Luncheon, officially endorsed by the AFL and benefitting disadvantaged children, and the free Foxtel Footy Festival will both take place on the 28th of September. These events mix football enthusiasms with generous helpings of socialising and other entertainment, and are a great part of the Grand Final Week.
The Foxtel Footy Festival continues on 29th and 30th of September, and the Grand Final Comedy Debate on the 29th should deliver some great laughs. The Parade on Grand Final Friday is a chance to see the athletes who will be playing on the 1st of October in person, which should help punters to make their final AFL Grand Final betting decisions.
If you aren’t lucky enough to get to Melbourne and are online betting and making your wagering decisions that way too, there are sure to be many articles and forums discussing the athletes’ appearance. Then, on the 1st of October, the final battle goes down!
