The 2018 AFL Grand Final will be played on Saturday September 29 at 2:30pm at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

It’s a battle of the birds this year. Whether you’re an Eagles fan or your favourite colours are the Pie’s black and white, it’s bound to be a great game.

Here’s how to watch the 2018 AFL grand final even if you are overseas.

On free-to-air TV

Channel 7 holds the free-to-air rights to all AFL games, including the grand final. Depending on the region you’re watching in, it might be channel 7, 70 or 73.

On your smartphone or tablet

You can sign up to Foxtel which offers a free 2-week trial of its subscription service. Foxtel also has the rights to the games and supports Chromecasting, so if you have one, you can stream the game from your computer to your TV.

You can also download the Watch AFL live pass app for Android and iPhone here, but it will set you back $25 for a weekly subscription, unless you’re a Telstra mobile customer.

Telstra mobile customers can use the Watch AFL app for free, but it doesn’t support Chromecasting.

On the PC or laptop

Similar to the options for smartphone and tablet, you could sign up to Foxtel with its free 2-week trial.

Alternatively, you can sign up for the Watch AFL Live pass which also has the free 2-week trial. If you’re a Telstra mobile customer, it’s free to subscribe.

On radio

Triple M in Sydney, 3AW and ABC in Melbourne, 6PR in Perth, Fiveaa in Adelaide, K-Rock 3GL in Geelong, Werribee and the Victorian Surf Coast, and the NIRS and 1116 Sen Australia-wide will be airing the match.

From a pub in Australia

GameOn! has a nifty list and map of all the pubs and clubs in Australia showing the game if you’re in the mood to get loud and rowdy.

From overseas

To watch on your smartphone or tablet, you will need to download the WatchAFL Global app. If you’re on a PC or laptop, head to Watch AFL.

A week-long global access pass will set you back $25 weekly.

If you’re on a budget, are feeling social and would like to go a pub or club to watch it, the AFL has put together a handy map of all the official overseas party locations where they will be airing the game.
