AFL Grand Final Party Finder Europe

Following its success over the past three years, the AFL have again set up an Overseas Grand Final Party Finder on the AFL website for all of the international fans to register the details of their Grand Final celebrations – including where and when they’ll watch the broadcasts of the big game!

The link is http://www.afl.com.au/TVRadio/OverseasGFPartyFinder/tabid/14881/Default.aspx

Everyone who registers will go into a database where the details of their event will become visible on our map-finder feature. The map-finder enables fans to zoom in on their area of the globe and be given details of all the parties being held in their area.

As per 2011, everyone who registers their event in the Party Finder will go into the draw to win a fantastic 2012 AFL Premiers Lithograph, signed by the captain and coach of the winning team and valued at $595.00 AUD.
