The annual AFL Grand Final is taking place at the MCG next month.

One of Australia's biggest sporting events - the AFL Grand Final - is coming to the MCG in Melbourne towards the end of next month.

The match, in which the winner of the AFL premiership season will be decided, traditionally takes place on the final Saturday of September at the famous venue.

This year will be no different, with hordes of sports fans set to book into Melbourne hotels in order to head to the match on September 25th.

Although Aussies will already be aware of the significance of the AFL Grand Final, overseas visitors may be surprised as they get swept up in the hype leading up to the event.

Indeed, the 2006 Sweeney Sports Report declared that it has now become the most important sporting contest in the country, attracting the highest TV viewing figures, the largest attendance and the most overall interest.

Given that Australia is traditionally a nation of sports lovers and the fact that it has to view for attention with the upcoming Ashes cricket series, this is quite some accolade.

As a result, it is advisable that people planning to head to the match book their hotels near MCG as soon as possible.

Ticket information and kickoff times will be confirmed closer to the event. For more information on this event, visit the AFL website ( or contact the venue on (+61) 3 9657 8888.
