Visiting or living in the Netherlands doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the 2018 AFL Grand Final.

The 2018 AFL season is almost over, with the Grand Final scheduled for Saturday, September 29. The event will take place at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

Besides the match itself, footy fans will be able to enjoy plenty of entertainment leading up to the big confrontation. The Grand Final parade will be held through the streets of Melbourne on Friday, September 28, kicking off from 11am at the Old Treasury Building. Moreover, Jimmy Barnes and US band The Black Eyed Peas will perform in the Virgin Australia Pre-Game Show. Barnes will also perform at the Premiership Party after the match.

If you’re in Australia, the AFL Grand Final airs on free-to-air, exclusively on Network Seven. The network will broadcast events all throughout the day on Channel Seven, 7Mate and SevenHD in all states.

It’s easy to keep up with the AFL finals if you’re on Australian soil. Seven Network and Fox Footy both air every match live nationally. The Grand Final, however, airs exclusively on Network Seven, so you can watch on free-to-air. You can also stream the AFL finals, including the Grand Final, to your mobile device with the AFL Live app. A weekly subscription costs $4.99.

If you’re travelling or living outside Australia, however, things are a bit trickier. You can check to see if there aren’t any viewing parties hosted at your location by accessing the AFL website. Or, even better, you can tune in with Watch AFL and stream the Grand Final online.

Watch AFL allows everyone outside Australia to keep up with the AFL, by offering live streams of matches, as well as replays, news, and statistics. It also enables footy fans to pause and rewind live matches or choose where to start watching, as well as download matches for offline viewing. A 12-month subscription costs $189, but there’s also a Finals Series pass available right now, priced at $79. If you’re only interested to stream the 2018 AFL Grand Final, however, you can get a weekly subscription, which is only $25.

The international streaming service is available on computers via the Watch AFL website and mobile devices with the Watch AFL App. Users can also watch on TV with Airplay/Chromecast or with Apple TV.
