The Gabba Seating Map
Covid-19 restrictions means the Gabba can only be filled to 75% of its capacity, yet there will still be 30,000 fans in attendance, with the game selling out earlier this week. Here's the AFL Grand Final seating map for the Gabba:
The Gabba to shine under lights
Saturday's AFL Grand Final will be the first time the game has been held as a night-time event and the Gabba will be on show. The stadium's LED lighting will help create an electric atmosphere during the pre-game and half-time entertainment.
How do I stream the AFL Grand Final?
Broadcast restrictions make it somewhat difficult to stream the Grand Final. Foxtel and Kayo Sports do not have the rights to show the game live, meaning the only way to stream the game is using the AFL Live Pass on the Official AFL App on your mobile device.
You also cannot stream the Grand Final on the 7plus App on your mobile device, or the 7plus website, due to broadcast restrictions. However, you can watch the game through 7plus on your TV - if you have the 7plus App installed on your Samsung or Android TV, Apple TV, Fetch TV, Telstra TV and PlayStation 4. Of course, you can watch the game live and free on Channel 7 around Australia.
