It’s that time of year again…  the AFL and NRL finals are here! The 2021 season has been a unique one, which is all the more reason why this footy finals season is going to be a cracker! With the Grand Final right around the corner for the AFL and NRL, now is the perfect time to start planning your Grand Final Party (even in lockdown)!

Even if your team didn’t make the cut, there is no reason why you shouldn’t still celebrate this momentous occasion. 

It’s going to be a big weekend for the Victorians especially, with the Melbourne Demons and Western Bulldogs going to head to head in the AFL grand final. 

For the NRL die-hards, we’ll see the South Sydney Rabbitohs vs. the Manly Sea Eagles and the Melbourne Storm vs. the Penrith Panthers in the upcoming preliminary finals.

Whether you live in Victoria, New South Wales, ACT or parts of QLD and are subject to lockdown restrictions or whether you are from another state that allows small gatherings, we have some great ideas for throwing a Grand Final party, either in person or virtually. 

Depending on where you live with the current COVID restrictions, why not host a picnic with some of your nearest and dearest friends or family. Set up a couple of iPads on the picnic rug or table and you’ll be ready to watch the grand final. Why not nominate a dish for each person to bring along...of course someone has to bring a delicious charcuterie board!

So, here is our list of some of the keys things to consider when hosting your party:

THE FOOD
